Otherworldly Thresholds in Architecture and Cinema (Based on a study of Shinto shrines)
MetadataShow full item record
There is a place where the human body and its surroundings come close to convergence, almost to the point of being one. This convergence is the threshold condition, when one body crosses from one physical space to another. As a point of entry and a point of departure, the threshold acts as conduit from one space to another. In terms of this intimate space, the threshold affects the human senses and possesses a certain energy, aura and movement.
