Architecture has always to be considered as durational, it can be diurnal and seasonal and a whole gamut of other temporal calibrations can and should be applied to it. James Curtis, has taken inspiration from Louis Aragon's book Paris Peasant (1926). After an evenings drinking, Aragon passes by the cane shop in one of Paris' arcades, he describes his visions of floating canes and sirens. Curtis and created an ecology of robotic devices that are dormant during the day and active during the night. They occupy a butcher's shop in London's Islington district and other locations to do with butchery throughout London. At night they act out the Greek myths using butchers shop fronts as proscenium arches through which they can perform to their public. This project whilst polemic, does illustrate that the contemporary architectural condition in relation to virtuality and digital space asks architects to question the old divide and established demarcations between performative arts (set design, theatre generally, narrative, etc) and architecture. The hybridisation of such forms of cultural output is fecund with possibility.
