have finished the layers drawings for review in the tute and my test print should be ready to pick up at 11. For the moment I am trying to finish to the best of my ability the long prints so they can be looked at as well. But they are starting to become very heavy and abit hard to work with.

perspex layers

base_council1

 

these will become the layers of the perspex drawing. I had to go back into rhino and change them abit because they were not lining up. I will now begin to colour them and add the shadows ect.

I am wondering if I should have more than 4 layers. more things that stay the same in all drawings.

re working this drawing have changed the left facade because the perspective was wrong. I have also added many more details around the room and hope to add more than the ones currently in the drawing. Also working on the shadows.

any comments would be great. Also I feel like the new drawing which I am about to colour needs more in it. Any ideas. I thought I might put a half finished wire tree on its side in the left hand corner but apart from that I have no ideas. Maybe some more warping?

trans

i have been working on my model / stage set the sketches so the different models I plan to make at the moment. Have started to model them in Rhino so I can laser cut next week. I am trying to model transition moments where the scale changes so it looks like the camera is zooming but really  it is the model that is changing not the camera… it is proving to be more difficult than i thought. the red arrows are the camera movements around the model… which i think may turn into a dome. i also cannot stop singing you spin me right round baby right round ect ect

crowd sourced colours

Barbra told me at the beginning of the year to use what she called crowd sourced colours or colours that consisted on many different colours. I just did not really understand what she was talking about… she told me to use xerox textures. But today I saw these illustrations which I think are really nice so might have a go. I want to make a drawing that is between my model and reality so half my model half the city- probably some kind or section maybe I do not really know yet- i am also going to try and incorporate the Hogarth feel so make the drawing wrong in its perspective. The illustrations are also lineless which I still want to think about.  But i think more importantly they do have amazing colours i also like that they are fragments and feel very deserted…. oh and be radical….I am trying to be radical

Straight Back Walls

sorry for rubbish render quality- trying to work out which is better straight or curved- curved looks better I think but will be harder to make because I presume that means any furniture will also have to be curved in the front and back which might prove annoying.

Model Testing -Ts

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 14.53.22 In this model I tested different camera focal lengths – 18mm focal length is the best – or the smallest I have on my camera. Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 14.53.19 In this set i tested if the back walls should be curved or straight, I used different camera angles to see if that made a difference to. Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 14.53.08in this set of models I tested what happens if you change the angle of the walls so I know what it looks like all photographs taken with 18mm focal length.

and the designing begins

deep

this is the deep facade- I have tried to accentuate all elements within the facade. this is just three bays and not the whole building- this side has more alliance with the video flat02 flat01on the flip side this is the flat facade which looks the same but has been flattened into a 20cm deep space as you can see in the first image. this side being flat talks about the non hierarchical nature of things some more akin to the blender.

Obv they are both rhino screen shots and not drawings yet but they will make up the beginning of the two sides in the glass drawing I was talking about. The next part I am going to model is when the flat and the deep face each other- I think there will be a number of slits in the buildings which will force this. I think this will take the form of half lineless and half very lined.

downing street extension- any thoughts

downing streetThe line will not cross through buildings anymore but I still think it should be sited in a political location because I want it to be somewhat violent. What about an extension of downing street. It is both political and I do not have to cut any buildings.

A bit of a failure – model of the final image in the animation

image image  image

 

this  model is trying to solidify the final image in the film. Its a test and I have done it in a way I would not really normally make a mold with mod roc because school is not open. It has crumbled abit but I will try and fix it when the plaster has dried. I was going to paint the cast which i still might do but it has given me another idea. I think I will make another one when school is open and I can laser cut the form and volume form the mold but I hope it shows some intention.

On another note i found this very cool link when I might try as my next installation

in reaction to the Axo

Screen Shot 2013-11-30 at 15.20.00i have been writing my thesis all day which I think I final have a title for, from nature to composition Peter Eisenman and De Stijl and it got me to thinking about this drawing. Its a reaction again my relentless drawing of the axo. Last year the axo became my context, drawing them, modelling them, questioning them. If this it to be true of the lineless for it to become the thing that I question from it nature to its eventual demise then I need to also find a form of representation that best suits it, to become my new context. I dont think it is the circle but I am not sure I want it to be the non rotated axo either.

the laptop and projection

all the set ups are done I will now spend my fine writing my text and finessing the video and images for printing. I think I am going to print 8 of the 30 photoshops the Dura drawing and one Demand. I now need to also find a way of turning playing the video without having to touch the ipad. If i have to play it from the ipad everything is ruined.

A Change

I am going to change the set up slightly now I have thought about it more carefully . I am still going to have the three steps but they will be presented slightly differently.

photo (5)

Sorry about the bad sketch so behind a screen I will have the council flat model.(far right drawing) behind another screen I will have the fake laptop with stuff surrounding it(middle). This laptop will be playing the video I have made of the council flats gaining back there particulars there context and materiality. This will be videoed live.

This live video of the laptop will then be back projected onto paper(not behind a screen-far left). After the video is played I will unveil the other two translations and the fact it is being played live. I think this makes far more sense because now the step is different than the one before.

photo (6)

I hope now I am beginning to question the relationship between objects/ artefacts and representation. Blurring them and unveiling them and questions the truth of the like for like representation. So using Alberti’s questions ( wanting to replicate like for like) and questioning them with Demands tools.

chose the bottom one- making it real

I am now working on making it real.

The recon will consist of three main translations.

1. The model with a camera and tripod to view it.

2. The paper laptop and paraphernalia playing the video of the first model becoming “real”. I will make a laptop coffee cup, coke cans, sweat wrappers ect ect to stage the video.

3. A video of the laptop playing the video projected onto a canvas or paper.

 

I will then have stills from the film printed, and maybe the initial images i made the model from
