卢旺达,基加利,卢旺达基加利建筑学院 / Edwin Seda

埃德温•塞达最近与一家法国建筑公司帕特里克•施韦策建筑师事务所建立了合作关系。埃德温•塞达创作了一系列影像论文,拍摄了卢旺达基加利新落成的建筑环境设计学院。建筑设计的目标是与自然光线共同发挥作用,但却从来没有真正地控制光线。因此,塞达在基加利建筑学院的拍摄作品中探索了作为空间转换媒介的光线,这是一种第四维度,只有当建筑和空间建设完成并且季节开始转换时,它才会实现。

建筑师兼摄影师埃德温•塞达一直试图在建筑中寻找一种或许能够超越人类触觉的感觉,讽刺的是,摄影本身就是人类触觉的缩影。塞达一直渴望对摄影作品进行一些装饰,这也是有点儿自相矛盾的。这些图像对基加利这座建筑的设计概念中的脆弱敏感、拥有极大的弹性这两种特点进行了探索,作为第三维度的光线和镜头更强化了这些方面。

有一种由不同的叙事手法构成的结构,其他构成元素包括无论天气好坏都不会受到影响的乐观主义和悲观心态、快乐和悲伤、繁忙和悠闲的日程安排等等。因而,埃德温•塞达的图像通过对内外空间进行探索,体现了对光线和人类体验叙事手法的持之以恒的追求,尽管有时存在一些偶然性,但是这些图像在描绘光线和空间的方式上是完全诚实的,因为这是我们感知人类所行走的空间的方式。


in a recent partnership with upcoming french based firm patrick schweitzer architects, edwin seda has set up a series of photographic essays that capture the new faculty of architecture and environmental design in kigali, rwanda. architecture is created to work with natural light but is never really in control of this aspect. seda’s work on the kigali school therefore explores light as a medium for spatial transformation, a sort of fourth dimension, which only materializes once buildings and spaces are complete and the seasons begin to change.

architect and photographer edwin seda has been trying to find a sense in architecture that perhaps goes beyond the human touch, the irony being that photography is in itself the epitome of human touch. this is something seda has always aspired to dress up, a somewhat self-contradiction too. the images explore architecture within kigali as a vulnerable and dramatically resilient concept, persuaded by light and the lens as a third dimension.

there is a construction of different narratives, of optimism and an underserving in both good and bad weather, jovial and expressive sadness, busy and leisurely schedules. edwin seda’s images are therefore constant pursuits of the narrative of light and human experience, explored through internal and external spaces and although sometimes somewhat accidental, the images are purely honest in the way they portray light and space, as this is how we perceive the spaces we walk in.
