Garden of Delights/ARCHITECTURAL TOPOGRAPHIES

Architectural Topographies [2002-present] is an ongoing project that records the lived experience of time and space. It examines the relationship of individuals to our environment through a series of site-specific spatial meditations that integrate drawing, architecture, video and performance. Since 2001 I’ve been using a single visual element: one continuous line. Conceptually each project is a segment of the larger meta-LINE that extends through [my] life. I work with space as material being it architectural, urban or natural.

The line extended itself in a spiraling movement around the shape of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers in the extension between NYC and Sculpture Space in Utica (NY); (5) corner view; (6) floor entrance detail (7) floor close-up and (8) still from video-drawing. DVD, B&W, 3min., incidental sound, (edited version) continuous line recording done in an airplane flying @1000 feet. Total time of recording: 2 hours.

The directness and meditative qualities of drawing allow me to explore ways of interacting with the viewer in order to intensify the awareness of the surrounding space. It is a particular conception of drawing which is not the sketch of an idea or a representation of an object, but rather, in the very event of its generation, a record of lived time.
This particular conception of drawing is essentially, a record of lived time. Through the work I assert life itself as I continually draw one line that ends up encompassing the entire place, collapsing notions of perspective, scale, interior and exterior opening a space for the viewers to experience a full moment of self awareness.

“Through this intentional being, Vieira opens an heterotopic space for mutual occupation by the public and herself. Her seemingly simple rule of equidistant line vibrates, turning an ordinary space into a complex vertiginous space that surrounds and absorbs us, where the two dimensional, three-dimensional and four-dimensional intertwine. A simultaneous articulation and dis-articulation of space, the work superimposes extremes of scale from the real dimensions of our bodies in space to the tectonic scale of geographic satellite imagery. “ - G.
