hello this is our first draft of our poster. any feedback would be appreciated!
note: realised i missed out 2D drawing/measurements, will add in later
another important note: TITLE IN PROGRESS. its almost 5 am jeremy is knocked out and i am incapable of naming things properly. will edit when both our brains work again.
feedback from last week:angles and proportions need to be justified and measured properly think more specifically about the choice of material
optimal viewing distance: 5 metres
proposal 1 is true to size and accurately depicts the distorted perspective. we found the proportions to be too jarring, so we tried to minimise the angle in the next Read more →
feedback from last week:many of the structures proposed the previous weeks were too complex and dominates over the shadows i.e. viewers focus on the form rather than the shadows keep the structure of the installation simple use a combination of opaque and translucent material instead of only translucent to show more contrast
existing canopy (with similar shadow Read more →
feedback from last week:the proposal last week was too much like a shelter; not intentional enough; people passing by will look at it as a ‘shelter’ and not a medium to frame the shadows suggestions: maybe add holes or use repetitive shapes, something that is more intentional and will let people think that it’s not just a shelter how do you Read more →
feedback from previous weeks:the circular screen installation proposed does not fit into the site proposed how do you expect people to use the installation? make a specific proposal of the installation
when developing forms and functions for the installation, we were stuck on the idea of having the passerby notice the shadows (forcing it on them). benefit of doubt that the users Read more →
feedback from last weekconsider using textures or 3D forms so shadow is distorted and cast at different angles, playing around with the 3D volumes instead of a flat plane think about the fallen leaves and how to get rid of them; the leaves may make the installation blend in more with the environment and less noticeable to passerby reflective material – Read more →
feedback from last week:
two ways going about it; CASTING: creating an object/sculpture to cast shadows FRAMING: using elements around us (nature and sunlight) and framing/emphasising their shadows
material consideration polyester mesh; white translucent cloth; paper; frosted acrylic; polished aluminum
NB. we were thinking if there is any material that is photosensitive i.e. absorbs light in the day and emits fluorescent light at night — Read more →
Continuing from our concept of observing the ordinary in NTU and the inspiration of the rays of light caused by the dense morning fog and the trees around the campus, we decided to forgo our original idea of using fog as a medium and focus on the use of light as a material instead.
Interplay between Read more →
Continuing off from the previous week’s inspiration of the morning sun rays, we developed our concept from there and narrowed down the purpose of our installation proposal.
Emphasise the unseen and let others appreciate the mundane
As our inspiration was a repetitive occurrence that is something that can be seen everyday but is not usually noticed, we wanted to emphasise Read more →
