1) To gain an understanding of the characteristics of planes and how they relate to each other in space. 2) To investigate relationships between material and form and analyze the influence of a particular materials limitation on a form structure. 3) To figure out how to transform 2D (paper) into a 3D form.
1. Find a location and take pictures (panoramic images) Choose a) specific spot (scene) and build your own place Ex. house, coffee shop, restaurant, store, etc. b) a building and reconstruct it
2. Collage /brainstorming: consider a theme (concept)- show inspiration and intent Consider people, location, scenery, weather, etc.
3. Sketches/ develop your ideas: 3 different sketches
4. Paper model: Construct 3D paper model of self-supporting planes. Model should be interesting at all angles and make the viewer want to look closer. It should be dynamic and appear as if it is caught in a single moment.
Work with a combination of straight, bent, curved, broken, and twisted planes. Develop relationships between planes across negative space.
5. Final Presentation: Determine the scale of your model- increase the scale (ex. ½, ¾, etc.)
Attach your 3D form to a piece of white foam board- include scale figures and any other elements you feel would help to bring your structure to life and illustrate scale/ proportion.
