Design d'espaces et pratiques numériques : de la "réalité augmentée" à la notion d'entr'espace

Abstract : Formerly confined inside computer screens, digital media dwells today at the very heart of everyday environments. Ubiquitous computing connected objects, «mixed» and «augmented» reality ... bring about new modes of spatial experience. This breakthrough, however, has not yet been fully acknowledged. Dominant lines of thought either mistake aesthetic experience and technological demonstration, or struggle to get beyond traditional notions of function, information and fiction. What are the consequences for spatial design practice? The first part of this thesis discusses current terminology in order to show its ineffectiveness in describing the precise nature of the aesthetic experience, and proposes the notion of interspace as a conceptual tool to characterize it adequately. The stakes are shifted from the sole realm of the digital towards the larger frame of design history in order to show the specific way that design as a discipline has taken to size the questions rose by analogous technological breakthroughs in the past. The second part explores the tensions that run through interspaces departing from the Baroque paradigm. Whilst such digital devices are often designed without consideration for the spatial relationships they nevertheless organize, the main hypothesis is that it is precisely at the level of such relationships -their fullest sensorial wealth considered-that the highest stakes are. The third and last part introduces prospective lines of thought by exploring the way interspaces transform our experience of dwelling through the notions of matter, interaction, life and existence.
