Artistic Installation: Context and Interaction - The Experience of "House of Secrets" by Ana Vidigal

November 2011

The main purpose of this dissertation lies in the study of individual experiences and perceptions regarding Installation Art in public space.  “Casa dos Segredos”, by Ana Vidigal, was the case study of this work, strictly conceived for the Central Pavilion of Instituto Superior Técnico.  The studies by Merleau-Ponty and David Seamon gave the main methodologies of study for this thesis, as well as some analysis tools taken from the Space Syntax theory applied in the context of the already said Installation.
