The Immaterial Transcript


Architecture is material, a physical refinement by producers, influenced by the immaterial and experienced by users. Immateriality is the imagination, emotions/sensations and anticipations. Therefore, architecture evolves from producers to the users’ relationships between the material and immaterial through their experience of the spatial platform.

In this film, users (cinematographer, composer and dancer) engage instinctively with the surrounding architectural platform through film, dance, and musical composition. Here, film captures the immaterial interpretation of reality, translated through the body in dance and illuminated by music. Therefore, this exercise facilitates the viewer’s understanding between the material/immaterial and producers/users/platforms. A transcript of experiences.


Alejandra Cordova, Andy Ukhtomsky, Tim Joe Mak and John Gatip are a group of students that collaborated in the making of “The Immaterial Transcript”. With diverse backgrounds in architecture, dance, photography and contemporary sound production, they have embraced the brief and produced a film that responded accordingly to the set theme.
