a trash, and others space editors
The presence of the trash in the house and its use indicate the permeability between the spacial set-up of the house and the “architecture” of an intangible computing space. If the trash already belonged to the household, this trash had made a detour through the margin of a computer desktop.
In computing, the trash (also known as the Recycle Bin in Windows and by other names in other operating systems ) is temporary storage for files that have been deleted in a file manager by the user, but not yet permanently erased from the file system. 1
In the statement house, the trash is a place in itself with its own modalities. Similarly to the computer trash 2, it acts as an temporary editor. Items or texts can be stored inside temporarily revealing past actions while exhibiting unrecovered items.
It is a transient space, set between brackets, temporarily removing the object from valuable attention, like a vitrine is an one whose function is to underline the object.
A tweet sent from the statementhouse account featured the door as a text editor. 3 When it was open, it partially hid a part of the text laying on the floor. Arrangement 7: The door edits 'cued multimodal learning in infancy'
While it was a poor form of editing, the impoverishment forced attention on the displacement that had just occurred. That it was the house cutting the text. The simpler or poorer the editing, the more noticable the new actor became, in this case the new space. As if to a loss of information corresponded an increase in place.
