This project was born during “interior design” course with Professor Raggi at ISIA, and the main goal was to realize a concept starting from one word.
The word that I choosed is “entropia” in english entropy (ancient greeck ἐν en, “inside”, and τροπή tropé, “trasformation”).
This simple wood game has inspired me to think about ordered and disorderly statements and about transformation, inspiring me to create a physical representation about these ideas.
I have created a modular set shape from one single triangle to built external walls, with full and empty material to shape incoming light.
The inner space is something that increases the perception of entropy, with raising light and growing scales with pylons that are sometimes hindering the space.
It doesn’t exist just one entropy definition, but exists many, about thermodynamic, mathematic, philosophy, sociology, information, ecc. Entropy has often been loosely associated with the amount of order, disorder, and/or chaos in a thermodynamic system.
The traditional qualitative description of entropy is that it refers to changes in the status quo of the system and is a measure of “molecular disorder” and the amount of wasted energy in a dynamical energy transformation from one state or form to another.
