3D | needles, paper, poking

The first assignment of Foundation 3D! 

Who knew…. will led to such a pain (literally)

We were told to make a plane out of thread – which meant sewing!! (i died i have never sewed so much in my life) 

I started out drawing random dots/lines on a piece of construction paper, and went on to sew it with needle and thread!

The first few tries was still alright, as we were new to it! Seeing the end product is pretty satisfying – it looks nice!

After a few more times, I gave up. 

It was tough working with multiple threads and holes, as while sewing, the paper might move and I kept ending up tightening some parts and some parts we looser.

Here’s more photos of my torturous time

After manymanymany study models that I made, I started doing the final artwork, with the plastic Prof Peter gave.

And here’s my final product! (I tried my best) 

Till then,

2D | mark-making I | process

Before coming into ADM, I went around researching on the projects and assignments we might have to do throughout the years in the course.
I chanced upon many seniors’ mark making assignments and felt that they were really interesting!

Judging from that, I knew that there will be an assignment relating to mark-making and I was really hyped up for it! However, when the project actually begun, I was at a lost.

Coming from a non-fine arts background, the art/designs that I do are usually digital works, very seldom with paint, pen or paper. Thus, I was pretty afraid that I will not have inspirations, especially for abstract art.

To start out my mark-making exploration, I used the Principles of Designs to sketch out some designs using mostly lines and dots.

I did several little grids, playing with thick and thin lines. Horizontal, vertical and even disconnect implied lines was explored. Each type of line gives out a different emotion. For example, thin lines relates to fragility, while thick lines gives strength.

After some exploration with pen and paper, I headed on next to execute my mark-making exploration with newsprint, paint and ink!

Stay tuned to my next post to see how the exploration went!

Till then, xoxo,
