3D | Project 1 : Pandora’s Box [Final]

This post marks the end of the first foundation 3D project – Pandora’s Box.

This post will be written in the following sequence:

Point 1 Brief Overview of the Project
Point 2 Thought Process of the Given Word
Point 3 Experimental Process
Point 4 Finalised 2D Sketch Model
Point 5 Process of Making the Final Model
Point 6 Final Model


For this particular project, we are to create a 3D sketch model that composites of rectilinear volumes.

Definition of Rectilinear: Moving in, consisting of, bounded by, or characterised by a straight line or lines.

Essentially, we are to organise 3 rectilinear volumes, establish the dominant, sub-dominant & subordinate relationship among them and create a composition that exhibits the word given to us.

However, we are to identify the principal axis of each rectilinear volume and keep the principal axis of the volumes perpendicular (90 degrees) to each other.

For a better understanding of the terminologies involved, you can check it at my previous post: https://oss.adm.ntu.edu.sg/engj0007/3d-2d-sketch-analysis-of-interesting-object/#more-111

2D | Project 1 : My Line is Emo [Final]

Final work:

Inserted in the above is my final work presented for critique. I will begin by explaining the concept behind my work, followed by the methodology.

Before I actually came up with the concept of the final product, I actually did experiment with various unique methods that can be found in my previous post:


Also, the artist that I referenced can be found in this post:


Before I begin, these are the 6 emotions that were presented in my work.

Primary Emotions
Interpreted Emotions
Love Longing
Joy Eagerness
Surprise Unpleasant Surprise
Anger Grouchiness/Annoyance/Grumpiness
Sadness Suffering
Fear Worry

3D | Project 1 : 2D Sketch Analysis of Interesting Object

[First Lesson – 18 August’17]

Prior to our first 3D lesson, we were tasked to bring along an object that we find 3-dimensionally interesting. I looked around my empty room in hall, and the object that came close to being interesting was the bottle given to us during our freshmen orientation camp!

Came the first lesson of 3D where everyone was given a chance to present the object that they found interesting and through which, we were taught on the various factors to be considered when analysing the object. For 2D sketch analysis, we have consider the object as 2-dimensional where it is flat and drawn with no perspective.

4D | Project 1 : Picture Story – Curating Self

Annyeong! This post will be on our very first project for Foundation 4D | Project 1 : Picture Story – Curating Self. 

In this project, we are given 3 different pictorial task to complete:

Task 1 : Me Where we have to creatively introduce ourselves using 3 photographs.
Task 2 : Object and Representation of Self Where we present an object that has significance or symbolic value that is parallel to an aspect of your life.
Task 3 : My World Where we share a series of photos of a location that evokes feelings from within.
