Performative Space - architecture beyond media?

Hanne-Louise Johannesen

When the space of design and architecture becomes interactive it becomes performative - you have to perform to use the potential of the space. The performative act is pointing at the border between presentation and representation and thereby dragging the media beyond the screen of representation. When you present you have to immerse your body and spirit, and the media goes post-medium in danger of blurring the balance of will, power and possession. Seduction becomes an operational strategy for the performative space.
