Space Popular: Search History
December 7, 2022 - January 15, 2023
Via Guido Reni, 4a,
00196 Roma, Italy

Using the writings of Aldo Rossi to explore virtual worlds and our movement between digital spaces, “Search History” features a doughnut-shaped pavilion made up of overlaid curtains featuring vibrant, multilayered images of a metaverse city whose doorways serve as portals. Space Popular founders Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg aim to show how the Italian architect’s ideas about how real-world cities—specifically theories from his book The Architecture of the City—can be applied to the metaverse. “What does it mean to click on a hyperlink?” Hellberg asks in a video. “Do we open a door or do we slide something up?”
