// Sonic Acts XIII :: the poetics of space
Next week (25-28 Februari 2010) I will be blogging from Sonic Acts for their website. The festival focusses on themes like hybrid and expanded space, utopian spectacles and invisible architectures (amongst others). The festival only takes place ones every two years, but was the last time I visited it by far the most inspiring/brainwarping four days I have experienced. The title poetics of space is derived from the English translation of La Poétique de l'Espace (1958) written by the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. In this work Bachelard meticulously describes the influence of space and architecture based on experience and imagination, an approach that is not only rooted in science or functionality (according to the booklet, which can be downloaded here) The banner above is my own (glitched) fearless fold flyer-version.
