By constructing atmospheres as the world of the unseen in real time and as part of environmental, social, and technological realities, Pamphlet Architecture 37 examines our radically mutated intimacy with digital technology. In three categories of a total of eight design experiments, Catty Dan Zhang analyzes techniques and mediums that are essential to contemporary digital culture and translates networked technological interfaces into synergistic spatial systems and materialities in response to present urgencies around the air we breathe, the data we exchange, the image we consume—through the industrial, mechanical, domestic, and virtual frameworks.
