process of dialog project

For the dialog project we were told that we were supposed to design a thing that has two separate and distant place and there could only be two.  The materials that we used were 12 skewers and 12 4 by 6 pieces of Bristol board.  The first sketch model that I made, I made a  pyramid out of the skewers and then I made a box out of the 12 planes and I was going to have it sitting inside of the pyramid.  However after looking at the project I felt that the two spaces were not well defined and there really were more than two spaces.  So after looking at that and decided That I really liked that idea I just had to to define the spaces better so I decided to make a partition but then after I made the partition however it was to complicated it kind of was distracting.  So for the final project I simplified the partition and I am really happy with the results.

Dialog Analysis

How is dialog created?
In my opinion dialog is created by the use of putting pieces and parts together. Dialog is the interaction of these parts and how they speak to each other.

How is a sense of space/place defined?
Space is defined by real and implied boundaries. Separation can also be used to define space/place. In my project space is defined by the boundary that I made a sort of partition that separates the whole into two parts.

How is the idea of system generated?
The ideas of systems are defined by parts that work together to make a whole and pieces that go together or play off of each other.

How does the joinery support the project concept/strategies?
By using joinery the project is held together and it supports the structure and it helps to create a smother better crafted model.

How is scale utilized in the project?
The scale of the project is set and limited by the size of the planes and the size of the skewers. The scale however was a good size it was not to big and not to small it was easy size to work with and it made a pleasing final product.

How do two-dimensional images add to the understanding of the project?
The two dimensional drawings show the movement of the project and it helps to show the project from the eyes of the designer and how there vision was for it to be viewed.

How did the initial project idea evolve?
I think for a lot of people started looking at this project by seeing if they could come up with an idea from their unity project. After this i found that the biggest challenge was defining the two spaces. My first idea was a pyramid with a box in the middle however this didn't define space well so i developed a sort of partition.

Unity precedent

I was online looking for a precedent for my unity project and I came across this photo on the This picture reminded me of my project because of the different layers and the lines going through them.

compare and contrast

Today in IAR 101 we were told to compare and contrast a project to ours. I decided to compare Rachel Cash's project to mine because there are a lot of similarities but at the same time there are a lot of differences. The first main thing that is the same when looking at our projects is the fact that they both use 12 skewers and 12 planes and we both poked our skewers through the planes and stood the project up vertically. When looking at our projects you will see that they are different in the fact that Rachel's skewers are all on one side except for one and in my project the skewers are all in different places in the planes. My skewers make like an x shape through my planes. Rachel used the theory of pattern in that she has four different groupings of three planes. I on the other hand used pattern but I used pattern in a different way by using it in the placing of the skewers through my planes. We both used proximity in our projects, take for example the spacing of the planes. The planes are approximately evenly spaced throughout the projects. We both also used alignment in our projects in that our projects are even down the sides not going in a bunch of different directions. So our projects are very similar in a lot of ways but at the same time they are very different and unique.

architectural elements #3

In my design visualization class we did a project where we had to draw architectural elements around the studio arts building. These are the drawings that I did.

architectural elements #2

These drawings are of lighting fixtures around the studio arts building that we did in my design visualization class.

architectural elements #1

In my design visualization class we drew architectural details in the studio arts building.

final unity project

We were given one week to make something out of 12 skewers and 12 4x6 planes. This is my final result.

Unity, how I got there

Here are a few pictures of some of the different models that I did. I also did some with other ideas but these were the ones that lead to the final project that I decided to do. The assignment was to get 12 skewers and 12 4x6 pieces of Bristol board and to put them together and to make something. This project really challenged me to think outside of the box. So far in the class we have had a specific assignment like make a place for a leaf but for this project we could make anything. So the first thing I did was to cut my 12 planes and to start playing with them. I decided to stick the skewers through the planes and this started the process that ended in my final project. Each hole is specifically measured out and they are x slits because the holes were to messy looking.
