Performative rum og teknologi


Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

The basis of this module is human experiences in relation to architectural and performative spaces. Students work with mechanical and technological means in the creation of spatial and performative experiences. Experiments will be made with various technologies, tectonic and architectural principles for the creation spaces, physical spatial structures and experienced environments. Students work theoretically and experimentally with realizations of spatial installations including the transformation of space into interactive or otherwise performative architectural environments.

In connection with the module, courses may be offered within the following areas:

  • Perception in Theory and Practice II
  • Artistic and Academic Methodology II (Installation, Architectural Spaces and Urban Design)
  • Digital Representation I – 2D and 3D Construction methods
  • Basic Electronics II

The objective of module is to introduce to space as the artistic medium for the creation and construction of artefacts and events within the field of art and technology.



During this module, students should acquire basic knowledge about

  • physical installations and performative urban environments and their visual and spatial effects
  • architectural aesthetic expressions, interaction between people, space and technology, choice of materials and visual effects
  • the application of technology in connection with the creation and use of performative spaces.
  • methods and tools to be used in the creation of performative spaces from idea to completed project


During this module, students should acquire skills in

  • identifying and formulating an art problem within the theme “Performative Space and Technology” and developing alternative concepts for a defined problem
  • developing and describing artistic and architectural concepts within the theme “Performative Space and Technology”
  • the application of appropriate technologies in regard to design and use of performative spaces
  • producing sketches, models and prototypes of spatial form


During this module, students should acquire competencies in

  • describing and analyzing architectural spaces and their social, emotional and performative aspects
  • producing concepts for spatial installations of artistic quality
  • communication the final design in texts, drawings, and models
