In project 1.2 we developed an understanding of the relationships between volume, “site,” and projections (or the transformation between two and three dimensions as registration of movements). In this part of the project we build upon our investigation of transformations in the construction of a single drawing that combines all traces of the sequential movements of the wire-form volume as well as the “scaffolding. This drawing collapses both the space and time of the discrete movements onto a single plane. In this act of drawing there are many decisions to be made that challenge one to consider scale, depth, sequence, hierarchy, etc. This drawing is important, as it acts as an archive of a process.
To produce a single drawing that combines all twelve sequential shadow drawings.
Some questions for consideration:
In the final transformation, you will use the collapsed or cumulative shadow drawing to produce a model. You are challenged to develop rigorous methods that inform this transformation from drawing to model.
Using this drawing you are asked to produce a volumetric model made out of balsa members. You will need to develop a systematic method in order to determine the transformation from the two dimensional traces into a self supporting volumetric model.
