Investigating the relationship between architectural space and the ‘Unconscious’ of Vienna, the project is concerned with the mechanism by which the constructed material object is able to support and/or deconstruct symbolic identity. Spray paint represents the mythical presence of that which escapes our conscious perception, the spray installing symbolic drift on everything caught in its gaze. Vienna’s hidden ‘unconscious’ is revealed as an ecstatic topography inhabited by phosphorescent ghosts in the throes of desire.
