Link/Cut Recording Centre, University of Media Creation
My main idea orginated from being asked to be involved in the redesign of a university campus as a live project. For my MA project I decided to focus on the recording studio and auditorium of the proposed design as a new facility informed by recent advances in technology including MOOCs, TED talks, radio broadcasting, short movie recording and the recording facilities behind TV advertisments. The facility would have a distinctive brand identity and related online presence within the university building. My site is an existing building in West London.
Link / Cut is a term used in structuring data and is the idea behind my concept of merged media and editing. The words are opposites but connected. I will be exploring the possibilities of laser cutting to help develop the Link/Cut concept as the laser enables us to cut any material using digital technology. The Link / Cut brand identity will incorporate the three primary screen colours of RGB (red, green and blue).
