FOUNDATION 3D // DN1003 // PROJECT 1 – POLYHEDRON DREAMS // RESEARCH
At the beginning of this assignment, I was a bit reluctant as I not confident in geometric abstraction, much less in 3D.
I did want to attempt the octahedron but after creating a very poor wire model of one, I realise I would not be able to produce a final outcome I would be happy with within the given time. So, I settled on the tetrahedron which still presented problems for me.
For the tetrahedron, I looked up nets of the polyhedron before realising it is actually a really simple shape.
Moving on to the planar model, I struggled before I looked up some of the artist references provided. I was very inspired by Lygia Clark’s geometric sculptures and how some form tetrahedrons by isosceles triangles rather than equilateral ones.
(I was unintentionally attracted to sculptures that were both meant to be crabs)
