The theme of much of my work is 'mirrors'. hMa is an architectural practice that is, in its own way, biogenetic, and, in that sense, very circular. hMa is a practice that looks back on itself.
I have invited my students to 'Think Different'. I believe in Thinking Different - Thinking Different is what has always differentiated Americans from the rest of the world.
We don't necessarily have an established order in America. We develop ideas and businesses like Facebook, Google, and the Internet - that upset the order of the rest of the World.
I have reinterpreted my work through writings; through Art (see Victoria Meyers: Music Box); Music (see Victoria Meyers LightScore; DWi-P Score; Shape of Sound).
Myths relate to how we see ourselves in the world. Myths are interesting in that they demand that we suspend our beliefs in many things: the suspension of Gravity; the suspension of Reality.
Mirrors help us to make that leap of 'suspension'.
Removing us one step from the original thing - we make drawings and models - which are like 'Mirrors' of the buildings we want to design. Plans are like dense books - if you know how to read them.
I am not asking my students to disbelieve in Gravity. What I am asking is that they frame our everyday knowledge of forces - like Gravity - so that they understand them better - and that they present ideas about Gravity, and Light, and Sound - to the world in a way that gives these phenomena a more profound understanding. So people can see and understand and hear gravity, light, and sound - better. So they can understand their reality in a new way.
