Assignment 2: Point Line Plane

When we first received the brief of this assignment, i wasn’t really sure what i was going to do and i couldn’t picture how my final piece will look like. Knowing almost nothing about sewing, i actually struggle to see how the type of lines such that it changes the shape of the card. Thus, my study models are all simple lines sewn on them as i am trying to picture how the overlapping lines occur.

My very first study model hahahah it was honestly shitty.. As i said i knew nothing much about sewing thus this was me using the normal sewing technique of using two layers of thread ðŸ™‚Â
The whole idea of this was me trying to “create” a cylinder looking object with lines overlapping inside of the cylinder.. BUT my paper was way to flimsy and thus it was just a disaster, it failed terribly. It was the first lesson when we actually get to try out and i was a bit disappointed with my failure cause everyone in class seem to do it so well? hahahah

So before the next lesson, i decided to get thicker card and tried to sew more basic lines and it turned out better than my first model, obviously. Also i tried a circular crisscross looking one as well as seen on above picture.

Just basic lines across each other.

Then, for the third model which i did in class, i wanted to do a swirl such that there is an intersection in the middle as the lines overlap. I drew a curve and a straight line and started from the extremes of each lines.

So… For my final 3D structure, having experiencing different types of lines that i could think of, i wanted to use different techniques to make a more dynamic shape/structure. Thus, i made a cut in the middle of the plastic card and sew it in a way it would distort the shape of the of the card.

Which turned out like this!! ðŸ™‚ Honestly, pretty satisfied with it as it has a very 3-Dimensional shape to it and different types of planes can be seen in different angles as you turn the structure.

I only decided to use 3 colours (Red,Yellow,Blue) which are the main primary colours as i didn’t want it to look to complex in terms of the number of colours involved.

More pictures of the final piece:

I really like the dynamic shape it has! ðŸ™‚

So, in order to get my threads to stay tightened, i actually tied a temporary knots after finishing a part and left a good amount of thread such that i can continue to knot it after the whole thing is completed. It helps a lot actually but eventually it still started to get loose on some parts.

All in all, I’m quite glad that i made improvement from my first model and although it was a tedious process of sewing, it was quite enjoyable! ðŸ™‚
