Description/Abstract

"The flip book, a device for viewing moving images, has unique characteristics that can be analyzed and translated into the built environment. In order to understand what is truly unique about FLIP_pace, the flip book moving image needs to be analyzed in contrast to the cinematic moving image to see where one form of media ends and the other beings. Based on the analysis of the flip book, the most conductive architectural space is the elevator. The speed of the elevator, the proximity of the image, the potential for human interaction, and the ability to control views are the primary reasons that the elevator is the closest architectural approximation of the Flip_space. While the invention of the elevator made the skyscraper possible, the skyscraper has made the invention of FLIP_space possible through the use of the elevator."
