Small World

We understand sets/objects/people by their relationship to each other and ourselves. We would touch, observe, breath, smell, talk, etc to make things familiar, to know how we are connected to them: We call a place with an oven and a sink, a Kitchen by the use of it and people whom we care about and hang out with, Friends by the human emotional connection.“As we read a poem, we internalize it, and we become the poem.” (Pallasma,2007).

Sequences in Design

The very close example of creating a space is in films, When the director carefully tries to manage to keep the flow of the storyline straight and sensible by going through the screenplay, characters, locations, acts and so on. “We will call the description of a closed system like frames and small world0, a relatively closed system which includes everything which is present in the image - sets, characters, and props - framing”(Deleuze,2000). More on that, When you watch a film, you would see everything is fused together and If it is a good flick, you will be a part of it too. “If it is a great book, it has become part of my soul and my body”(Pallasma,2007).
The frame, therefore, forms a set that has a great number of parts, which is of elements, which themselves form sub-sets. It can be broken down. The filmic sub-sets for architects, using the cinematic language for creating space, not only be made out of conventional architectural material but also characters and props are now part of the ingredient of making spaces.

Films have had a souvenir from nineteenth-century for modernism, a shop providing sets of intriguing and diverse tool and techniques amongst the theories which have been born with them. Of all the art, Architecture has had the most privileged, difficult and sometimes vague relationship to films, since both share lots of the same variables and attributes and both are the “Role model for spatial experimentation”(Vidler,1993)
