Putting things together


My intention is to make a drawing as a way to link parts of the recon, mainly through scales. I completely agree with the concept of using drawing as a process rather than a representation. I hope this is not counter-productive though since I don’t have it figured out as an outcome yet, I’m building in 3D and then I will decide which way to two dimensionalise and make a drawing.

A few tutorials ago Manolis gave the idea to draw in 2 to 1 not only 1 to 1, so I incorporated part of this in the drawing as a response to the architect constructing in paper in miniature.

Reading the unit brief again, my favourite part is “The expectation is not that you make a buildable world. Rather, the thing you build will be your identity.” I chose Prouve because of the construction drawings and the clarity within this linear way of working making me question whether I can insert something less predictable within. For this reason I am quite attached to the outcome of his process be it a house or chair. I think though that more than the product of houses and furniture, Prouve was designing an event; that of the assembly-reassembly-disassembly; much more than the event of inhabitation.

I want with the project to be aware of the scale of our inhabitation while constructing through the medium of drawing. I think here is where my interest in the photograph with workers drawing the plane comes in.

As I have a tendency to leave things unfinished I need to progress with this ‘drawing’ so that it can become useful for me.

Main question I need to answer: what am I constructing?

I like this drawing by Will Insley because to me it seems that the spaces he is drawing are actually within the thickness of the paper.

    From what you are saying, seems that it should be “use drawing as a way to link parts of the recon”, rather then “make a drawing as a way to link parts of the recon”, so you shift from products (representation) into actions… and manipulate your way of working (actions) and have a continuous output, rather then focus on representation in drawings. Thats what I’m doing, yo!

    I agree masasha this is my intention. I want to invent a way of work, my process, for having a continuous output. But I think this comes from experimenting and since I am unsure of things I’m starting with this. Looking forward to see your action!

    you thought of meee? grazie mille I will see if they have it here :)
