Forensics in Process exhibition opens October 28

Forensics in Process: Emerging Modes of Representation in Design Research, an exhibition by Angus Eade, opens at the Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center on Friday, October 28 at 7pm. Located at 141 E. Main St. in downtown Lexington, the exhibition will take place in the second-floor gallery.

Forensics in Process features a selection of graphic feedback cogenerated by a group of authoring human participants and a range of design media in pursuit of an architecture characterized by multiple- simultaneous, passive building systems optimizations. This is not to say that the pursuit for optimization is primary; rather, this work centers optimization as a means to satisfy corporeal needs, while uplifting the human spirit.

Computational tools have been enlisted in this research to create, find and develop architectural microclimates and climatic efficiencies that coincide with particular structural-spatial syntaxes and their expanding ontologies, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Elements Analysis (FEA). CFD and FEA can be conceived of as new lenses which assist in revealing hidden potentials in the forces and flows at work within structures and spaces; working with CFD and FEA infuses the design process with forensics capabilities.
