Interesting concept. 3D feature could have been better, but mind that it’s an old project (i guess 2000 or 01).

I copy and paste the information from the web.

Viewers are confronted with a blinking cursor. As they type, rooms begin to take shape in the form of a two-dimensional plan, similar to a blueprint. The architecture is based on a semantic analysis of the viewer’s words, reorganizing them to reflect the underlying themes they express. The apartments are then clustered into buildings and cities according to their linguistic relationships.

Each apartment is translated into a navigable three-dimensional dwelling, so contrasting between abstract plans/texts and experiential images/sounds.

Apartment is inspired by the idea of the memory palace. In a mnemonic technique from a pre-Post-It era, Cicero imagined inscribing the themes of a speech on a suite of rooms in a villa, and then reciting that speech by mentally walking from space to space. Establishing an equivalence between language and space, Apartment connects the written word with different forms of spatial configurations.

I was looking at va402 proposals and belkis’ project reminded me a work that I’ve seen in moma ny.

Two people are separated by a thin wall and each has a computer with keyboard. The idea is to chat (like a regular msn or mirc style) with keyboards but what you write becomes a pictogram on the screen. So you start to communicate with symbols that represent your words or your story.
