3D Composition

1:1 in progress

construction strategies and how the “making” reflects the “meaning”

strategies i use while constructing this piece involved a lot of scoring and making things very planar. although that was my strategy, it was a bad one. because i decided to score the wheels and make them planar to get the round look to them, it was very ineffective because when it came down to it, the wheels ripped when i tried to get them to roll, they just weren’t smooth enough. to make up to the lac of movement in the skateboard i rigged the trucks so that it would at least be able to rock back and forth. to do that i just scored some pieces so they would become round, then overlapped them and only glued the center part to allow the rocking movement. this reflects the meaning because a skateboard is something that moves quite a bit so it was important to be able to get this to be flexible in the same way somehow.

Digital 3D Print

Digital 3D Print. Discuss your digital design. Include a pic. (download from app)

for this design i just wanted to keep it simple and symmetrical since i was so unfamiliar with the program being used. i tried to make it a little interesting, but at the same time i wanted to make sure it was something that would still look good when printed. unfortunately, none of the prints really lived up to my expectations because i went with such a delicate design.

Critique Reflection

Critique Reflection – After seeing everyone’s projects, how is art different in a particular place, as opposed to a “neutral” traditional art venue? Were some places more effective than others? What made those locations powerful/significant?

art is different is particular places because of how it interacts with environment around it. for example, Chris’s project stood out because it didn’t follow the patter that the rest of the window panes followed while one like mine totally blended in. i think some places were more effective depending on what type of effect someone was looking for. certain spots could make a piece stand out while other places hide it and depending on one’s goal, one place would obviously be better than another. something that made some locations more powerful were the ones that people didn’t know as well. i think putting the project in a weird are of the building that people don’t usually look at or go to made it more powerful because once you notice that weird project there it makes you question more about the building vs a place thats very familiar where you know what usually is or isn’t there.

Your concept and site

Your concept and site (where, what, and why?) include pics and sketches

the concept for this project was to take the railing attached to the staircase in the atrium and continue the curving pattern that it made. i thought this would be an interesting place to build off of because the end of the railing curves then ends so abruptly, it almost seems like something else should have been added on to it. Screen Shot 2016-12-05 at 4.01.12 PM.png

Critique Reflection

Critique Reflection – After seeing everyone’s projects, how is art different when the body is included? How did making this project wearable/integrated into the body make it different from the 1:1 cardboard object project? Is it “performance?” “Fashion?” “Freak show?” “Art?”

art becomes different when the body is included because it makes it feel more interactive. unlike other project that we have completed, this one actually interacts with a real, living thing instead of just sitting on a table or hanging from the ceiling. this project being wearable made it different from the 1:1 project because it was something that could be interacted with. the 1:1 project was just of inanimate object, but integrating the body to it almost gives it a sense of life. i think that the wearable pieces could have been fashion, art, or even a freak show. some of them almost looked like odd creatures while others were just pretty to look at and some had an actual purpose to wearing them.

Post pics

Post pics of yourself wearing your cardboard. How does this fit the assignment? What (to you) is the most interesting part of your solution? Why?

this fits the assignment because its a symbiotic piece that doesn’t represent another part of the human body, but it is also wearable. i think the most interesting part of this solution is how geometric and clean cut it is. most of the pieces were very organic, but few were so geometric, so i think that makes it a little more interesting.
