Abstract or Description:

The Phi books is an interdisciplinary collaborative project initiated by Dr. Eleanor Dare and Dr. Alexandra Antonopoulou in 2008. The project uses the house as a metaphor for interdisciplinary collaboration and is a response to the inadequacy of historical models for both theorizing and practicing creative research collaboration, and to an apparent lack of theoretical mobility across diverse disciplines. It has employed narrative, storytelling, audience participation, code-writing, performance, maths, sophisticated motion tracking technology as well as custom software to explore how borders, walls, and doors facilitate collaboration.

This is a 3d model of a space within the Phi Books houses. It is taken from its VR version which was heavily textured with image-stories. While the artists have been using physical modelling as a way of radical writing throughout the project, they were interested to see what happens if you strip these models of the semantics of their textures. These new materialisations are for them a material blank canvas that invites new layers of collaborative authorship.
