cinema pneumatica

“cinema PNEUMATICA” is a mobile inflatable pavilion where people instead of watching a movie in a conventional manner becomes the scene of the cinematic spectacle. There are multiple projection surfaces with different textures and material properties which allow the images to materialize in many layers. Furthermore, bodies of the visitors interact with light and projections creating constantly changing patterns and scenarios. The pavilion is situated on the ‘forgotten’ land and invites to celebrate the vacant space, the moment and the unexpected temporary encounter. We seek to create a situation of enstrangement as well as to provide an adventurous space to experience individual psychogeographies. Emotions here are stimulated through sound, light and kinetic movement. The design seeks to use as less as possible typical architectural heavy materials in order to create social & emotional space. Fabrics were picked in order to achieve ergonomics, mobility and lighteness factor. Furthermore, fabric is easy and inspiring material to work with having a limited budget, offering opportunities to play with shape, light, translucency, vibration and reflection. It is a project by MArch students (URBAN RESTART) which explores unbuilt environment and low tech architecture in order to bring neglected spaces into use.

Norrie Innes, director of the Barras Art and Design, visited MOBILELAND as part of our lecture series last 27th of February 2015. He was highlighting the importance of entrepreneurial and social skills to stimulate and steam up youth creative economies. The underpin the importance of Glasgow Project Office (GPO) led by Dr Cristian Suau and a team of year five students Kurt, Eoin and Spyros as a great motto to develop future urban transformations in East End, Glasgow, and beyond.
