Researching around neighborhood
While I was walking around my neighborhood to find inspirations for my 2D Assignment "My Line Is Emo". I managed to find something interesting which is the construction barriers. It has a very unique texture and outcome of mark making.
This is the outcome using part of the construction barriers. By twisting it while pressing it on the paper, It gives a spiral effects and also trying to exploring how to do mark making for the emotions, fear.
Another interesting objects that I found around my neighborhood is the rock! Not the actor "the rock" but its really a hard and solid rock that I found while walking back home in the night. It gave a cloudy feelings which I felt happy while looking it. I called this the "Cloud 9" effect.
Study Model 2
After some research and ideas in mind, I decided to process with my study model 2.
Started off by cutting the paper into a letter "W", I felt that by cutting into a shape of W, it gives a series of angels for me to bend them without putting so much forces in it and it has lots of angels to play with.
By default its best to mark the dots to sew through before making the patterns and shape out of the plane because the final model will be a different and thicker material. This is one of the process that I learnt.
Study Model 2 (Final Outcome)
I felt that it has lots of things to improve on, example like the shape needs to be properly form and must be good in all angles, The strings is roughly what I want as I remembered carefully where's the dots are placed.
But I might changed the whole layout again as this is part of the study model! I believed the next outcome will be a solid one.
Study Model 1
Above are my study model for my 3D assignment. We are tasked to create something unique using paper and strings. By folding them into different sharps we also have to take in consideration of how we can improve through series of bending, scoring and even cutting.
This is my very first time sewing strings to paper. At first it was pretty though but as we goes on and slowly, it actually improve our techniques of sewing them together. But the above model doesn’t really look nice in every angles as I didn’t not do any research before making this in class so I decided to research more of it and trying to improve on my next study model.
