| At the Intersection of Art and Science

Paper, cardboard, plywood, light—decidedly conceptual and materially ephemeral, Tobias Putrih’s projects draw on visionary concepts of architecture and design and utopian ideas of 20th century avant-gardes. The book traces Putrih’s investigations into the heritage of architectural experiment, such as the works of Buckminster Fuller and Friedrich Kiesler. Perceptron is the first comprehensive survey of Putrih’s work that oscillates between architecture, sculpture, and science. Through an encyclopedic array of reference materials and critical texts, it examines Putrih’s practice in the context of architectural and design history as well as the history of cybernetics, and offers a richly illustrated study of Putrih’s modifications of public spaces, experiments in collective form, as well as his immersive temporary environments created out of everyday materials.

TOBIAS PUTRIH (*1972 Kranj, Slovenia) studied at Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, before he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana with a degree in sculpture in 1999, and earned his MFA in sculpture and video in 2003. He lives and works between Ljubljana and Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is on the faculty of Program in Art, Culture and Technology – School of Architecture and Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
