appositional architecture
On 2002.02.03 I wrote a note regarding “appositional art” and also the notion of wqc/appositions, but concluded with not being sure what appositional architecture is. It now seems that I do know what appositional architecture is, and I've been doing it via the "recombinant architecture" and Ichnographia Quondam, and even the first two Houses for Otto, House of Ill-Repute 001, Le Composites, Cut & Paste Museum, etc. I can at least collect/list all the examples of "appositional architecture" at Quondam, and outline a display of the work.

There seems to be a thin line between appositional (architecture) and superimpositional (architecture), yet the 3-dimensional nature of architecture actually can simultaneously accommodate apposition and superimposition. For example, the HQ of DATA is appositional in elevation and superimpositional in plan. I like this interesting double aspect that architecture can facilitate (and I wonder if this could be part of “Surgical Double Theater”).
Actually “Going into Eclectic Shock” was/is going to be about my recombinant architectures, so either it all somehow comes together or it begins to interfere, or contradict. [2009.04.07: eclectic shock could deal with mixing/recombining architectures from different era into new wholes.] Is appositional architecture and superimpositional architecture somehow going to be the overriding aspect/motif of AinCC?

Lost's ending
I now suspect, after seeing the third episode of Lost season 5 last night, that Lost will end with all of its original cast alive and together. This is how I see the current time traveling coming to a conclusion. It will be like Finnegans Wake and like Il Campo Marzio. Too bad Bloomer didn't make this vital connection.
So now it's exploration of the possibilities of the space-time continuum. Like Proust was a neuroscientist, was Piranesi, with the Ichnographia Campus Martius, a scientist of the fourth dimension? (Here is where I have to review Dixon's "Ichnographia as Uchronia".) IS IQ also a study/experiment of architecture (and urbanism) in the fourth dimension? For IQ the time continuum connection is the Axis of Life/Parkway connection, which comes after Piranesi's own Porticus Neronianus/St. Peters connection.
Are the recombinant, appositional buildings of Quondam studies/experiments of architecture in the space/time continuum? Is that what they always have been? (Here is perhaps where I reread Geometry, Relativity and the Fourth Dimension.)
And what of The Odds of Ottopia? Did it all have a sense that even I did not fully understand? Bilocation was a significant part of the story. A step beyond Theatrics Times Two? What is Bilocation2 or Bilocation3, etc.--the studies of further powers within 2 = odd.
Quondam and Museumpeace as bilocation theaters? And all my posting activity over the last 12 years as writing / existing within the continuum as opposed to just within reality itself. Just looking now at the Virtual Domain collages I again see an architecture within the space-time continuum--the theme is widely present throughout my work, and I can now see on what foundation my further work rests. Is Quondam (and Museumpeace getting there) impenetrable because of its space-time existence? its slippages in and out of various time frames? (Do I write a comment at things.net?)
This is a great note because a breakthrough into understanding my (design) work is abundantly more clear. There is much here for me to elaborate on further, and I could formerly write about what Quondam is all about and indeed explain my work as a further approach to architecture. Does this also explain my further approach to art?
And now, before I go to read Dixon's text (Uchronia), I'll end by mentioning that I now have to think about the relationship of reenactionary architecturism to traveling in the space-time continuum.

Looks like there's now no denying that there are architects and there are appositional architects.
