It performs. It provokes. Antagonist Aperture is a shutter that is responsive to sunlight and movement, operating as a sun shading device and a provoking mediator between the individual and their view. The aperture is closed when the sun is bright, yet opens as a person approaches. A field of Apertures produces provoking views by exploiting feedback from the physical movement along the length of the material actuator. During dark hours of the day the aperture is open, yet may close upon the approach of a person to hide undesirable views or to provoke engagement with the boundary of the building. In this way, walls become active participants – antagonists – in the experience of its users.
