Coy Howard: Exhibition discussion (November 19, 2010)

The video begins with a performance devised by Coy Howard in which choreographed “viewers” obstruct everyone’s view of the work displayed the walls.

Howard responds to questions from Eric Owen Moss about his installation in the SCI-Arc gallery. Moss questions the didactic nature of the work and suggests that it may be limiting by presenting only one point of view. Howard describes the work as being about experience and says it provides multi-sensory input that allows for processing in many different ways. When asked how the work qualifies as architecture, he explains that it represents many of his personal interests including an awareness of a tendency in contemporary architecture to use a single surface. Moss also asks Howard about his concept of visual braille and how it suggests a sensibility of experience that is often absent in architecture.
