Developed as part of an ongoing method for investigating the role of speculation in the architectural design process, each evolving piece in the Displacement Device Series acts as an operative research apparatus. Articulated through writing and in the making of images in drawn and photographic form, the empirical examinations of the devices help to relate and intensify their poetic speculations. Through the investigative connection with a world of multiple, differing, yet simultaneous times, future projections are conjured and creatively sustained: the world becomes one where the sun can set beyond the horizon and yet remain in the sky, where passing birds can both seek to arrive and to dissipate at once. This induced multiplicity allows for reflection upon what has yet to occur, ultimately generating a critical discourse on the role of prediction and anticipation in the architectural process.
