Model Work...

More work that I have to catch up on from those early studio sessions.

I received conflicting advice from my colleagues as to what we were supposed to do for this piece of studio work, so kind of improvised... bearing in mind that I did a similar exercise in the Landscape Basic Design course from the first year.

Actually, a lot of the studio sessions seem to repeat this work- but it's great to revise and see where I've improved (or haven't).

Anyway, the task was to create three models (quickly), each from an A3 sheet of cartridge paper, built around a concept.

Each concept was developed from word-string- this is where there was a lot of contradiction from my fellow students! Serves me right for missing classes I suppose...

In the end I went with Shiyuan's choices as she seemed to have the most successful crack at the models.


So: this is supposed to be planar and texture...




Next, sequential volumes and pierced:







The idea for this being that a string of volumes have been connected by this long ribbon which has pierced each of them. I still have this model, might try taking some better pictures of it...

"How is it down there?" she rasped between quick, delighted breaths...




And so, finally: soft/hard, connection & planar...


Sort of looks like a medieval city, but in the future. And shit.

Next step is to create some interesting montages from these and then compose them professionally on an A1 sheet... looking forward to that....
