Aesthetics Of Digital Emotion

This thesis explores the use of RTVE as a tool to produce atmosphere that evokes complex emotional response from virtual inhabitants of the space. Within architectural representation a shift to architectural visualisations in digital mediums have lost the prominence of the sensual communication of atmosphere and emotion in the abstract component of space. The Aesthetics of Emotion constructs a methodology to reintroduce this sensuality into digital space, that draws from knowledge of both the intangible atmosphere and the technical Presence to allow an iterative articulation of objective atmospheric design within digital space.
