[PEZ DE PLUMAS-ATMOSPHERIC ACCUMULATION]
“Investigation in imaginary pragmatics” – yes – the imaginary is not exclusively utopian, it is more often a function of the everyday. Slavoj Zizek tells us that the `Ideal Ego´ is an idealised self-image (as opposed to the `symbolic´ Ego-Ideal or the `real´ Superego).
As practitioners (architectural) we are engaged in the `business of the world´, where the pursuit of the `ideal´ requires an ongoing and simultaneous engagement and idealisation- a pragmatic pursuit of the `small narratives of practical opportunity´.
The English Etymological Dictionary defines `pragmatics´ as “well practiced, fit for business, active.
Pragmatical – practised in many matters, Praxis (Greek) = fit for action”. And as for `Investigation´, is that not what we have always been doing, exploring those atmospheres that drift between the `imaginary´and the `pragmatic´.
