Architectural renders form the cornerstone of public communication in contemporary architecture. An overabundance of visual content has produced a fixation on architectural representation, rendering techniques in particular. Computer generated imagery is no longer an intermediary between an idea and its realization, but a finished product on its own. The worldwide dominance of this rendering programs consequently results in a homogenous aesthetic around the globe. Rendering software and its application works as a self-reciprocating aesthetic style of tropes that reinforce these dominant politics and values. Images of the future reinforce the way that future is developed.

While standardization is a necessity for computer operating systems that might be contrary to the desire of the inhabitants of those cities to have them as individual and as tailored to individual needs. Jiu Jiu captures with his exhibition “Fantastic Grounds” the universal language and the fascination of these highly-glamourized abstraction of the world we live in. In his new video work Jiu Jiu carefully dissects the images and algorithms that form our living space.

This is not only an important aspect on an aesthetical level but also has far-reaching consequences for human society. In designing and constructing environments in which people live and work, architects and planners are necessarily involved in influencing human behavior. From Howard’s “Garden Cities of To-morrow” (1902), through Le Corbusier’s “Ville Contemporaine and LaVille Radieuse”, to the Smithsons’ “Streets in the sky”, there has been a long-standing thread of recognition that the way people live their lives is directly linked to the designed environments in which they live. So how will be live in these new cities?

建筑渲染是当代建筑进行大众传播的基础。过于丰富的视觉内容造成了对建筑表现——尤其是渲染技术的痴恋。计算机合成影像已不再作为概念和实施之间的媒介,而成为了完成品自身。于是,这项风靡世界的渲染程序导致了全球审美同质化。渲染软件及其应用程序作为一种具有自我往复式美学风格的修辞,巩固了这些主导的政治和价值观。未来的图像又巩固了未来的发展方式。

标准化作为电脑操作系统之必须,和这些城市居民的个体欲望和个人化需求有所冲突。赳赳通过展览“人造场地”,捕捉到了普遍的标准化建筑语言,以及经高度渲染后的抽象世界的魅力。在他全新的影像作品里,赳赳细致地剖析了构成了我们生存空间的图像和算法。

这一方面,不仅在审美层面至关重要,它甚至更深远地影响到了人类社会的结果。建筑师和规划师在设计和建造人类居住、工作的环境时,必会牵涉到影响人类的行为。从霍华德所著的《明日的田园城市》(1902),到勒·柯布西耶的“现代城市和光辉城市”,乃至史密森的“天街”,都铺垫着一条长期存在的线索,即:认识到人类的生活方式与其身处环境的设计有直接关联。那么,在这些新城市中生活会是什么样?
