WYSI*not*WYG

What you see is not what you get.

Olivier Ratsi, along with Gordon Matta-Clark was also involved in the Anarchitecture movement.

This new landscape is created by Olivier Ratsi, sometimes by technological error or intentionally produced in a process likened to cut and paste paper collage. Deconstructing and reconstructing these images to form a new architectural landscape; an anarchitecture landscape, leaving behind all the norms while making us feel challenged by this new visual, could it be real on first glance? This is a really engaging way to work and I am especially interested in this new surface that Ratsi creates. As a collage technique, this could be a really fun way to make new work.

This may be further investigated in the next few modules.
