Project 1 - Exercise 04

The new characteristic of thickness (which the chipboard inherently possesses) will have affected the way that you worked and produced your variations in the previous exercise.  Folding, crumpling, scoring, and the other operations you may have developed in order to achieve rigidity and structure also present possibilities for creating volume, depth, interior and exterior spaces etc. which subsequently allows the plane to evolve into a spatial idea.

Exercise 04 due Monday September 9 (Project I Review):

•  Synthesize elements from your various models into 1 construction which meets the requirements assigned. Think about craft and presentation.  

1. Marble must change speed, change direction, and come to a stop,
2. Marble must be visible and invisible,
3. Marble must pass through at least one plane

•  Draft one plan and at least one section on vellum at full scale. These will begin to show the 3-dimensional nature of each design represented in 2-dimensions.  Use lineweight to represent hierarchy and depth. As a reference, cut lines should be drawn using 2B-4B leads and background should be drawn using 2H-4H leads.

•  On trace, bring at least (3) diagrams of the final constructions, including but not limited to: speed, directionality, structure/structural lines, massing, path of the marble etc.  Practice thinking through drawing.  

•  Bring in previous models and sketches to show your thought process and development

Consider the following:
Can the marble occupy an outside and an inside? How are these defined?
How has the planar study developed into a spatial proposal?
