Space Light Matter by Carlo Santoro – Purpose of the research is to be able to lay the groundwork for an individual or group of individuals to further develop their cognitive self-consciousness to a point where they come to restructure the socially shared meanings of Space, Light and Matter. From a methodological point of view, stimuli generated with the support of automatic compositional procedures are used to assess possible “failing constructs” conceived by individuals during their aesthetic experience of interaction.
Eventualist Architecture is the result of the research on methods and themes in contemporary architecture by Claudio Greco and Carlo Santoro. The conceptual framework reflects the Eventualist Theory in Psychology of Art by Sergio Lombardo and develops the compositional approach of the school founded by Vittorio De Feo at the Univestity of Rome TorVergata. The theory is still in the process of systematization, while the first practical applications have already begun.
The Eventualist architecture is the essential reference for the stochastic procedures studied in the research Space Light Matter by Carlo Santoro.
