Virtual Doubling attempts to create a mapping of virtual ruptures onto and into physical space by creating spatial ‘doublings’ of the physical-material space and the metaspace of virtuality and perception through a strategically positioned incision. After studying the site and finding existing physical conditions that lent themselves to being transformed into spaces of virtual doubling; spaces of contemplation, cognition, and identity, the piece was designed and constructed to act as a neighborhood temple for local residents and other users through the city. This spatial montage is meant to produce an awareness of the simultaneous schizophrenic schism and co-dependency between the physical and the virtual; the social and the personal.
