The Experiment series of research exhibitions presents a polemical, provocative and visionary transdisciplinary approach to architectural and spatial practice delivered through international exhibitions, symposiums and publications. Participating architects, designers, and artists use speculative narratives to create, develop and represent innovative architectural and spatial ideas through an exploration of digital media.
The second manifestation of Experiment is ‘Sensorium’, which explores aspects of the cognition and perception of space in architectural and spatial practice through the use of digital technologies that allow architects, artists and designers to challenge their disciplinary boundaries.

For Synthetic Space Nic Clear and Hyun Jun Park selected and scanned three iconic sites in Huddersfield: Castle Hill, Queensgate Market and the Railway Station. Clear and Park manipulated the scan data to represent and explore these familiar spaces in unique ways through the production of images, animations and drawings.
The ability to manipulate the ‘point-cloud’ data allows Clear and Park to create synthetic spatial models that exist between the virtual and the actual and combine the ‘measured, the ‘experienced’ and even the ‘practiced’ in a way that no other form of spatial mapping is capable of.
