Gothic Bullfight

This is a group project from Spring 2008 with instructor Gabriel Esquivel. The initial criteria was to create an installation celebrating light. In addition, Prof. Esquivel encouraged us to investigate the idea of creating an emotional surface. This approach departs from the traditional architecture of thinking and process to an architecture of feeling. We began our research by looking at the gothic rose window for lighting effects and geometry, and the candle lit interior of the gothic church. We moved to incorporate the bullfight for ideas about color, motion, spectacle, ritual, and emotion.
