For the previous week, we did revised mock up and 3D model of how we envisioned our installation, to form an imagery of the NTU map with the hanging/suspended objects (which represents the students of the school).
However, we realised that it may not be as easy as we thought for the audience to see the same imagery we want them Read more →
Considerations & developments for this week:
Track 1: Are the concentric circles are really necessary? Explore a mediation between the organic shape and the candies Smaller organic items that are colorful and re-arrangeable?
Track2: Looking at how we can reimagine and repurpose the queue poles
Research Track 1
After consulting with KS & feedback from Fabrizio we decided to see how we could make this set of 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 →

In the last post, Heng Tong and I came up with sketches on what we envisioned our installations to be. Upon the sketches, we went on to visualize our concepts in 3D. We also looked into the choice of materials we would want to adopt for Read more →
We decided to review why our previous design looked very much like Peter Opsvik’s Garden, here are the key ideas:
Analyzing Garden into elements A. Thick and thin supports B. Branching out from one main support C. Multiple circles in the whole installation D. Seats are very high off ground E. Use of different pattern to differentiate leg rest/seats and backing
What we have in previous design 1. Branching out Read more →
Last week, we talked about incorporating the excavator into our design. We came up with the dimensions of our pedal boat and showed how the light signal works to have the element of teamwork.
Suggestions we had last week was to add the excavator’s arm into our design to have a more symbolic meaning.
This week, we drew out how the Read more →
Form exploration II Fiona x Shanelle
This week we are expanding on a few factors from previously:Module design and Attachment Improvement on the frame form structure Dimension of components Module arrangement (WIP)
(1) Module design and Attachment development1(b) Module Details (Orthographic Drawing): Read more →
For this week, we decided to re-design and re-proportion the shape of the installation. To inject more dynamism into the shape, we have changed the direction and distance of the curve by increasing the inclination and having an upward progression for the spaces between two surfaces. We can observe that the space between the ground and the first curve in the first direction Read more →

(apologies for the late progress post)
We began conceptualising the form of smell with our concepts. As we consulted Professor Ker Siang, we realised there is a mismatch of ideals among our 3 concepts.
As our intention is to capture scent by triggering tactile trajectory, concept Read more →
Here is a recap of what how we would like to proceed on our idea:
We wanted to see how the arrangements would look like virtually thus our renderings below. We wanted to see the scale of the installation therefore we input human models (man: 1720mm, woman: 1660mm).
With the same orientation, how about alternating the layers?
