ABSTRACT

In 2015 the Kyoto Design Lab of the KIT (Kyoto Institute of Technology) invited the MediaLab of the Chair Christophe Girot ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) for sharing its innovative teaching methods on landscape perception in a joint project. During the collaborative workshops they are surveying an exemplary choice of three Japanese gardens in Kyoto, representing different garden types, scales and relationships to the city.

In 2015 the Kyoto Design Lab of the KIT (Kyoto Institute of Technology) invited the MediaLab of the Chair Christophe Girot ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) for sharing its innovative teaching methods on landscape perception in a joint project. During the collaborative workshops they are surveying an exemplary choice of three Japanese gardens in Kyoto, representing different garden types, scales and relationships to the city. The goal of these surveys is to map aural and visual landscape qualities through a new concept combining 3D-point cloud models with 3D-sound recordings, both collected in the gardens.

By editing these two components into one new composition, the students will learn how to use audio-visual media for analysing and recomposing space based on perceptual aspects.

Ninigi – Workshop June

During the workshop at the Kyoto Design Lab in June 2015, given by the MediaLab, the students made an exercise in which they had to compose a sequence with a section through the 3D-Modell and on site recorded sounds of the Ninigi garden in Kyoto. Students: Nicol Nurdi & Inoue Tomohiro

Shinsen Do – Teaser 

A first little teaser from the data collected in October 2014, when the Chair of Christophe Girot was making a field trip to Japan. It shows an extract from the Shisen Do garden in Kyoto with the corresponding audio recording. Audio: Nadine Schütz / 3D: Matthias Vollmer
