WEB MODEL DOT SPACE

WEB MODEL DOT SPACE is an experimental architecture studio concerned primarily with the research and development of media structures – broadly defined.

Our current research looks at the spatial opportunities of archival information – a process we refer to as “embodying the archive”. This work begins with LiDAR scanning technology and ultimately envisions and develops a variety of thematic experiences from the data sets.

Two goals within this work are to 1/ document and archive buildings indicative of cultural legacies within the city over time and 2/ provide opportunities for expanded engagement and interpretation of these buildings through mixed reality and multimedia formats.

This work has been supported by the MacDowell Colony, NEW INC, Art Omi: Architecture, and LTU CoAD. Recent phase 01 iterations of this work debuted at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art ( BMoCA ) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit ( MOCAD ).

" Web Model Dot Space becomes an entry point, or portal, to critical dialogue around how existing spaces can facilitate visionary use. Our everyday built environment is filled with static, ancient architectures and institutions that symbolize a kind of permanence. Jones’ architectures are forward-thinking in how they reimagine these familiar spaces in unfamiliar, sensory ways. The viewer steps inside this shift in place; an experience that prompts consideration of how inclusive these sites have historically been in terms of diversity of people, methodologies, and thinking." - Pam Meadows - BMoCA 2021
