“What if it’s possible to transform from conventional art museum spaces into high dynamic performative spaces approach to heighten architectural experiences and human interactions inside a public museum via amalgamating of variants of understanding in an urban performative spatial catalogs”
The design is to introduce a digital art exhibition hub and facilities such as art studios, digital technologies, experimental lab, sound mixing studio, workshops, and sharing medium spaces with the approach of performative spaces to spawn human interactions and their intervention for the use and the development of digital art.
The Interactions and interventions act to bring about the artist enthusiast and defining their appreciation of art towards the public. The issues of the project is that this design is an initiative for a helpful facility for exploring digital art. The lack of proper facilities for digital art, artists in local content where the artist had to rent space and exhibit at private gallery, scattered within George Town, Penang heritage area.
Development proposal of ‘Penang Heritage Art District’ along from Lebuh Macallum to Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway offers new possibilities for transformation of Penang cultural art. The objectives of this project is to invent a modern facility to support the development of digital art and to introduce it to the public. The digital art appreciation involves inventing a modular exhibition space for flexibility, an architectural technology in modern spaces, a creative art spatial solutions, and also by providing with creative workshops and art studios.
Three key objectives of the project are to give an exposure on digital art and craftsmanship as an information center for the artist and digital art enthusiast with the intention to change public perceptions toward digital art (digital art inspiration). The programs teach and inspires a new generation on the creativity and the technical abilities that digital art can help to grow in the near future. In this ever changing era, the project aims to represent digital art and the new revolutionary media art toward the education purposes, not only as a single form of art, but to be as part of many new media art these days has produced. There are many forms of art in the digital art movement and it always is a part of our lives today or the future to come.
In this design, the permeable of spaces to allow visual and physical exploration between exhibit spaces. By enabling the permissibility in the spaces between the neighbourhoods is to avoid sounding commotion that could disturb the adjacent buildings. By using the performative space approach, the space is divided into smaller spaces by introducing portable wall. These enable fragmentation of multiple use of open space that can accommodate two different kinds of exhibition methods. The large open spaces are to enable free circulation and more versatile area.
