HOPScotch

An adaptive spatial play in 5 multiple entry Acts

As in Julio Cortazar's eponymous novel, Hopscotch has multiple entries that build distinctive sequences according to the choices of the lector - in our case the inhabitant of the space. 

In its core version, that could be infinitely complemented, it has a structure of 5 architectural modules, or Acts.

Those modules share their base size and common levels of access, allowing equal assembling and motion between them.

Each has a minimum of 2 Entries and Exits, offering a variety of space sequences. 

The subject is not a user of the space. S.he doesn't consume it, but interacts, embodies, and leads the environment through actions and behaviours, in a symbiotic exchange.

It results in a spatial performance where the subject receives information while engaging entirely within it. Becoming actor, spectator, and director of the performances.  

Those mouvements involve the Macro-scale, when affecting how the modules are assembled, the scale of each singular space, until the one of the body itself. 

Transformations engage a diversity of experiments, including motion, sound, lighting, music, screening, pulsations, shadows...
