Design 2: FINAL, the notes

The notes below are ripped from my sketchbook.  They include thoughts and ideas that need to be represented in the FINAL:

Show a place of study/reflection/observation

1. A place of Study
*To show in this space
Focus: By making the materials direct the eye to certain areas.
Interest:  By directing the eye to catching/hidden areas in the model
Investigation: Is sparked by the interest caused by strategically placed stereotomic pieces.
Knowledge:  Is gained by studying the model.  Interest and investigation helps the self pursuit of knowledge

2. A place of Reflection
*To show in this space
Light: Brings in warmth making space accepting.  Materials will focus light into space.
Peaceful: Felt in space by the light that comes in through openings in the material
Secluded: By obscuring space with materials, space of reflection is open without being exposed

3. A place of Observation
*To show in this space
- Open: Space that is welcoming and has minimal obstructions
- Accessible: Easy to follow/clear path of elements.
- Exposed: Materials allow space to be shown.  From inside out.

Keep The Ideas of Anni Albers In Mind!!!

- Create a "weave" of materials
- Let them intertwine on different planes
- Stereotomic to represent mass.  This element adds the "pattern" of the mass.
- Basswood to represent structure.  The sticks will intersect as an overlay "pattern"
- Glass to represent places.  Try the skin/outer layer on the model. Sets the limit.

Design 2: FINAL, the pictures


  This was a preliminary chipboard model made to incorporate the ideas I want to represent.  I drew on it with sharpie to show vertical flow.  I also reconsidered some pieces as I moved on to the final iteration.  This helped me in the final step as I cut the board maximizing every face of the model is as fluid as possible.

almost there!  this is one of the rare times I actually touched the model without using gloves.  The white material made any/every smudge show.

I laid the model down and traced it with a pencil, then went over it with a sharpie.  The focus of this drawing was for me to sketch possible solutions for the basswood and plexi glass.  The different colors represent different variations.  This process allowed me to figure out what worked and did not, without cutting and discarding material.


Early Inspiration:

Water Color Cadmium Yellow & Burnt Siena.  
Canvas: Cold Press Water Color Paper
