Architectural research has today reframed the city as a living laboratory, where people, events and things are translated into forms of visualisation.
The notion of fieldwork, once tied to anthropology, is by now a ubiquitous term for almost all research outside of the architectural studio, with emerging tropes around information collection, organisation and display.
This exhibition frames a selection of practitioners who work precisely within and against these tropes; engaging with the modes and formats of translation, from the research subject to the page, screen, or document. Their field then, is that of information, and their mode is that of new visual organisation.
Associated events include two Art Month Sydney tours of galleries in Chippendale and Redfern and a Fieldwork symposium on 16 March. See the UTS Art events page for further information
