SEMIOTICS AND MORPHOLOGY
Horacio Wainhaus (Argentina) | The Scenic Space as a Mechanism of Transformation
“The scene is a place where things come to be said”, Gastón Breyer reminds us. In the universe of the scene, the word space has a wide range of meanings. Expressions such as scenic space, dramatic space or theatrical space are often used as synonyms. However, the substantial differences between these terms require a detailed study of the sense of the distance between natural order and scenic order. The translation of linguistic codes into visual and auditory codes (in each staging itself), causes chains of mutation. There, the playing art is pure presence. In this territory of thought, the problem is, above all, formal: each proposal for scenic space requires solving the ways in which the drama takes shape.
SEMIOTICS AND FORM, DESIGN, CULTURE
Gunnar Sandin (Sweden) | The symbolic and pragmatic means of city growth: the case of establishing a European Big Science facility in Sweden
The presentation consists of an analysis of expected and unexpected actors in the planning and construction of a city district, built around the establishment of neutron and x-ray physics facilities. The symbolic and pragmatic weave of action is here shown to be the “vision” and “agency” forming a semiotics of city growth.
Note: Each conference consists of one hour followed by half an hour of discussion between all participants.
