Design Project 1-2

Active Lines

A single straight line is full of potential. Activating the potential of a line can be achieved through a wide array of methods. By performing operations on the line itself or by embedding the line in a specific context a line can take on different functions and meanings. From a simple line drawn in the sand to the imaginary (and often conflicted) line that divides one country from another.

This project challenges you to investigate the ways in which a single straight line can transform in order to describe a given imaginary volume. There are constraints that will govern the transformation process that you develop. The challenge is to develop a systematic method that informs the ways in which you transform the line, while opportunistically engaging constraints.
