Seeing, perceiving, viewing, envisioning: each is a form of framing that mediates between inside and outside, public and private, what’s evident and what’s hidden. Georges Teyssot, Professor at Université Laval’s School of Architecture in Quebec City and author of A Topology of Everyday Constellations (The MIT Press, 2013), analyzes how the notions of window, door, frame, and screen have unfolded in time, from Alberti to our mobile phones.
A lecture presented in conjunction with the exhibition Rooms You May Have Missed currently on view in the CCA main galleries.
