Mapping of becoming orchid and wasp

Becoming occurs in our relations with architecture: it is within rhizomic movements of people gathering in a public space, upon stairs or a moment within one’s bedroom. It is also the bed, sheets, curtains, air and elements that the space is composed of. These compositions of particles gather at intense points, they are spaces that continue to grow, expand and condense. Through the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari and a fixation on Salvador Dalí’s painting, “My Wife, Nude, Contemplating her own flesh becoming stairs, three vertebrae of a column, sky and architecture,” my paper seeks to uncover the instance of ‘becoming-architecture.’
