Accolade West 103 (new Fine Arts Building adjacent to Burton Auditorium), York University

The Blind Architect : Visual Crisis Architecture Parallax "Alexander Pilis is a Brazilian / Canadian Artist, Architect and Curator based in Barcelona. He is founder of Archimemoria, Canada, http://www.architecture-parallax.net & http://www.theblindarchitect.com, a non-profit organisation established to broaden the links between Architecture, Art, Science, and Perception. He has participated in many international exhibitions in Canada, Germany, Brazil, England and Spain. Pilis has participated in two Sao Paulo’s Art Biennials and he was an artist/architect in residence at the Akademie Schloss Solitude and at the Banff Art Centre.

To his study of architecture, Pilis has incorporated the ideological instrument of Parallax as the theoretical base. From this platform he teaches and organizes exhibitions, symposiums and public discussions. The project examines the crossover between Site, Art, Architecture and Perception. Alexander Pilis describes his work as follows: ‘To locate an issue and a question, one needs a minimum of three views of observation, such a discourse negotiates the conversation of differences. With this cognitive method, difference is actually the necessary basis of locating; describing and finally coming to some understanding of a given object , issues of our concepts of visuality within our contemporary depiction’."
