Episode 001: Dematerialization of the Body: Jorge Otero-Pailos

In this season’s first episode, death is posed as a question through the dematerialization of the body. Pabla Amigo (’21 AAD) and Gabriela Junqueira Franco (’21 AAD) try to understand the implications of the dematerialization of bodies with our final resting places. Does the state of being alive only relate to the physical body? Can our bodies metamorphose into other forms? The praxis of understanding physical and digital space is complemented by an interview with Jorge Otero-Pailos, conducted by Ali El-Sinbawy (’21 AAD).

Jorge Otero-Pailos is Professor and Director of Historic Preservation at GSAPP. Otero-Pailos works on the intersection of art, architecture and preservation and as an artist he has been exploring the temporality of dust, pollution and their relationship to life, human activity and architectural legacy.
