Revisiting what we left off last semester – Pandora Box.

For the very first assignment for this semester, we were tasked to create 3 moulds based on the words we were assigned to. We were free to use foam or clay to create our modules.

The words I had were :

Inflate  – to fill something with gas or air, so as to Read more →

Thanks for including the research material that clearly shows the inspiration and evolution of how you derived you module, Charissa.:) Since your module is hollow, do a Sectional cut across your array arrangement of 3 and also include Plans and Elevations and Isometic drawings of your final ice-tray before next Fri's class.
Charissa, do compile a Final PDF Layout for this assignment showing your Final ice-module configuration, 3 Operative Verbs and complete set of Technical drawings (Plans, Sections, Elevations & Isometric drawings), which I have yet to see...

@ Bird Whisperer

For this assignment, we were to create different modules based on the given 3 keywords. The keywords that I have gotten — Lift, Shift and Reflect.

Module 1

Module 2

Process

In the end I went with Module 2, it is easily stackable compared to Module 1. For the mould, I tried both of the methods, Latex and Silicon. The silicon method did not work Read more →

Clear process documentation and great attempts in orthogonal (Plans, Sections and Elevation) drawings as well as isometric drawing. Do another set of these for your ideal final Ice-tray. An Isometric drawing of the arrangement of 4-6 modules would demonstrate your intentions better. Add some shading so we get a better sense of depth and height in your isometric drawing. Looking forward to your 'Infinity' ice rings JJ :)

ABOUT THE PROJECT

To create a modular receptacle based on the operative verbs – reflect, inscribe and intersect, like an ice tray of sorts.

Final outcome

concept

The modules, when lined up together this way, create paths that link to one another. The composition is inspired by topographic maps, constellations, and structures that connect with one another.

Clear process documentation and schematic orthogonal drawings. Please draw in the groove-detailing in your Isometric drawing instead of just representing them as lines. In addition, include some Sectional cuts of your final ice-tray and update the ice-casting process before next Fri's class.Thanks!
Hi Cheryl, thanks so much for your feedback. Noted and will make the necessary amendments soon :)

@ itsteri

Kicking off sem 2 with a new project, we were tasked to manipulate a basic 3D object volume with operative verbs that we picked at random. The verbs that I had chosen was bend, notch and array. 

BEND~NOTCH~ARRAY

Bend: shape or force something into a curve or angle Notch: an indentation or incision on an edge or surface Array: display or arrange Read more →

Good process documentation, however, it would help to couple your plan and elevation drawings with the corresponding facing of your module and also indicate where you've done your sectional cut. This is missing. Good attempt at Isometric drawing for the more orthogonal Module 2, you might need to relook at the shading for the curvilinear Module 1, the sense of depth and height is not as apparent. Do include a set of Orthogonal (Plans, Sections and Elevations) and Isometric drawings for your final circular array of 5 modules and update on the ice-making process before next Fri's class. Thanks.
Great! The ice-making turned out well! Good attempts with the Isometric drawings too Teri! :) Yes this project is a great test on planning, patience & perserverence... lol

@ Jiaying

For this assignment, we are suppose to manipulate a basic 3D volume with the three words we got. The key words I got was Extrude, Skew and Pack.

Pack: very close together / a few items Extrude: being forced out Skew:  slanted / distorted in a way

Module 1:

For my first module, I define pack as a group if cubes being stick together ( a Read more →

Clear and meticulous process documentation and Excellent job with the Orthogonal and Isometric drawings, Jiaying! :) Please do another set for the ideal final ice-tray showing the arrangement of 4-6 sets of 'double' modules and update the ice-making process before next Fri's class. Thanks.
Hurray! The ice tiles turned out really well! :) Great job with the revised isometric drawings too.... well done!

Hey guys!! Here’s the first post for Form and Visualisation in Sem 1.2!!!

For this project, we focus on rectilinear forms while trying to align them with three keywords. As I am literally starving for time because of hall stuff I’m just gonna dive in without the usual drivel that I usually post ahahahahaha :’)

Niki, firstly, apologies for 'killing' your hands during live demo of press-on silicon mold-making process, fault of too much baby oil (TT;) Secondly, Module 3 was the original module that caught my eye because it is unique, so would have preferred if you had done drawings for that instead of Module 1 but... Moving forward, good attempt with your technical drawings, however I think use of line-weight would help to better differentiate between your elevation and sections. Love the multiple configurations you have created from your modules :), please CHOOSE ONE arrangement and do a set of ORTHOGONAL (PLAN, SECTION and ELEVATION) as well as ISOMETRIC drawings for you ideal ice-tray... (NB: Draw the arrangement of 4-6 ICE-modules not the silicon mold in ISOMETRIC view) Also update the ice-making process before next Fri's class. Thanks.
Niki, On closer look, do check that the angles/ orientation of your Isometric drawing is correct. Also, have you uploaded images of your ice-making already?

Nok Wan, I know you've shown me your drawings in class but please upload your drawings again with better resolution as they are impossible to review here; as this semester is about Form and Visualization and there is equal emphasis on model-making and technical drawings, so my advice would be to leave 'solid' and legible record of technical drawings on OSS. I suggest you do another isometric drawing showing the arrangement of 4-6 modules for your ideal ice-tray and how they slot into one another, just as what you've drawn, but with more modules. Make your technical drawings bigger, sharper and have more 'presence', think D, SD, SO with emphasis on the important elements in your OSS layout. Your current layout makes your annotation (D) and your sketch models and drawings (SO), a bit reversed, no? Thanks.

Hi cheryl, updated with larger pictures with new drawings and with the final ice cubes!

Hurray! Nok Wan your Sharkie ice modules are looking great! Thanks for revising the drawings too... don’t forget to do up a final PDF layout including the 3 operative verbs used & showcasing the final ice Mr Sharkie.

@ Joel Lee

We begin the semester right from where we left off – Seeing Pandora’s Box

For this assignment, we were tasked to create 3 objects adhering to words which were picked out from Pandora’s Box.

The objective of this assignment was to familiarize ourselves with the concept of making molds by exploring different types of casting techniques. We were also introduced to isometric Read more →

Thank you Joel for the clear and meticulous process documentation!:) I'm so sorry Jester Hat module didn't work out... but Hurray! with the ice-making of Ancient Relic! Please share your expertise with casting ice using 2 Half-silicon molds! I think adding some extrusion dash lines in your Isometric drawing could better demonstrate how your modules can be packed/slotted one into the other. Actually, you can probably better show this packing/ slotting idea of the 'double-module-combi' in Plan, Sections and Elevations as this is hidden in your chosen Isometric view... (hint) **NB: PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SERVING your ICE to anyone... the silicon we used for casting is NOT FOOD SAFE!!!** \(-0-;)/

@ castrochronicles

As we revisited the narrative of Pandora’s box, we combined the usage of modules from the last assignment with our new found knowledge of various design themes. The new Pandora’s box becomes an ice tray that encases our carefully designed modules, creating our individual ice moulds.

By the blessings of Pandora, I was given Read more →

Brendan, as always, thank you for showing your 'Master Chef' skills once again!:) To be honest, I think the half-CHOCO, half-ICE module looks the most fascinating... how did you make that? Did you dip your ICE module in chocolate? Am curious to see how your silicon mold turned out, do show it to me. On hind sight, I think if you had kept one side of the vertebrae profile flat and had the other side convex, it would have been easier to remove from the silicon mold and you could have cast your choco-ice in the original intended layout... but that would have compromised the 'realist' touch of the final choco-ice fossil.. hmmm...food for thought :) Do attempt an Isometric drawing of a string of choco-ice modules maybe 3 sets? Align the curvature of the modules to the 30-30 degree x and y-axes lines. Thanks.
Thanks Cheryl! Yes, the half-choco, half-ice did have certain uniqueness to it haha. It was actually an attempt of freezing half ice and half chocolate (45mins ice, 45 mins chocolate), in attempts of showing two visual qualities within one module. Alright will do, I will update my oss with the drawings. Have a great weekend!
Thanx Brendan for the cool updated dino fOssil image!;)

Categories: Pandora Revisited
Yes Jocelyn! Yay for the little ice-monsters! Am not sure how milk monsters will turn out but you might want to ask Brendan for some advice on Choco-ice monsters since he claims they can last longer for photographic purposes... or ask Joel for advice on how he built his 'photographic studio' in his fridge... Did you document your other initial sketch modules? Do include a set of Orthogonal (Plan, Sections, Elevations) and Isometric drawing of the arrangement of 4-6 monster modules. Choose an angle where you can show how the ICE-monsters slot one into the other.You might show this in an Exploded Isometric drawing with extrusion hash lines. Also, update your milk/ choco monster-making process if any, before next Fri's class. Thanks.
Good attempts at the technical (isometric) drawings Jocelyn! :) The wireframe isometric drawing makes it confusing to the eye especially for the 4-module arrangement. Better to draw the 4-module configuration as solid objects with shading to give a better understanding of perspective and depth. Overall comment, the chosen "line thickness" for your technical drawings could be reduced.
