For this week, we have started on the making of mock up and finalized the poster too.

MOCK-UP

We will be having 2 sets of mock ups, one will be showing the whole area at a 1:20 scale.

Another set of mock up will be to show the light up effect, but showing only a few seats.

These are the stalks for seats.

Laser cuts for the base, will be sandblasting all these to create the different intensity circles.

Testing with light source for the light and seat.

POSTER

The name for the project is still tentative.

Please do let us know if there is any issues with the poster.

# Week 11 – Refined Arrangement

1) There was something missing from the whole composition that caused the whole installation to not gel together as one.

2) We have quite a few elements to work with so it is about refining the arrangement of these elements.

3) Comments were to work with any theories that would justify our arrangement.

This week:

1) We have decided to change the seats to something more  bulbous like the lights.

2) Experiment with more lights stands (of smaller size) and removing the backing of seats.

3) Changed the support of the seats to a tape pipe that splits into 3 to support the seat.

4) Experiment with multiple arrangement and eventually decided to make use of the Fibonacci Number to justify our arrangement.

Starting with some exploration of arrangement:

A, B, C – Fully random arrangement, varying the distance between the light stands too.
(TOP VIEW: Darker Green – Lights; Brighter Green – Seats)

D & E – Having 5 light stands in total, positioned to form outline of tree.
F & E – Having seats branching out of the light stands and joining 2 seats to a ‘Y’ shape support.

Fibonacci Number

We were looking at the sequence number of,

” 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 . . . ”
Formula, Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2

The Fibonacci Number was the key determinant of how we position our elements in the 2 arrangements below.

We used fibonacci number either as a sequence or as ratio below.

Arrangement ONE

Adapting the sequence as the height of the seats to light stands

Using the sequence as ratio to position seat at the front view.

Arrangement TWO

Taking Fibonacci Ratio that are already evident in nature, in a spiral format.

Seats are spaced accord to the fibonacci ratio.
