MATTHEW POON

The Institute for Hydraulic Calibration and Hydrometrical Automata

MATTHEW POON of Bloomsbury is socially awkward and doesn’t go out much. In the hope of breaking out from his safety bubble and enriching this reality with his architecture, he attempted to invent didactic mediums to investigate this world and the realms beyond. One such mediator is the pigeon seducing spatial arrangement.

It sits at the seam of the human/nonhuman world and acts as a cypher for Matthew to study the subjects’ behaviour. Experiments were done to reeducate and reprogramme the pigeonkind whilst he performed an autopsy on their logic to see the world in peculiar ways. Through this entanglement of dioramic setup, Matthew treated the pigeons as probes and compasses of the outer world.

By reversing his logics and reassembling his cosmologies, Matthew had developed an embodiment of knowledge, injected all his fascinations and desires in the form of an architecture— Institute for Hydraulic Calibration and Hydrometrical Automata. The architecture that accommodates, nurtures, and anticipates expeditions. Through the adventurous materialisation of this construct, Matthew has come to realise that that the pigeon automata have become his metaphorical lens for the rather precise way in which he gathers an understanding of the world and assembles it.
