3D Sketch Models

The word that was given to me is DISCORDANCE.

I was slightly troubled with the word that I got. Everyone else seemed to get pretty straightforward words, but mine was a word that I couldn’t even understand. I created various models that would illustrate a “lack of harmony”.

Version 1:

3D Sketch Model 1

3D Sketch Model 2

After some consultation from Cheryl and the class, I found out that I could use more angular shapes to illustrate the word discordance. The boxes that I used were of similar sizes and I should choose boxes of various sizes instead.

I also thought that I did not understand discordance enough, hence decided to search it up a bit more.

“Discordance “

  • Normal terms – Lack of agreement or harmony
  • Geology terms – lack of parallelism between adjacent strata, as in an angular unconformity.

Curious, I dug a little deeper into the geology term and here was what I found.

From there, I created new Version 2 models.

Version 2

3D Sketch Model 1

This model was created based of the usual meaning of discordance. I placed the dominant box as the centre whereas the subdominant as the anchor to hold the model in place. For both dominant and subordinate, I angled it to give it the discordance/disharmony/angular effect.

3D Sketch Model 2

For this model, I decided to recreate the geology term instead. The orange box and white box forms an angular unconformity similar to the sediments in a discordance deposit. I used the subordinate as the anchor for this model. Notice also how the Dominant, Sub-dominant and Subordinate changes from each angle. This was done on purpose since my term is considered a “Rebel”.

  1. I think the discovery of what ” Discordance” means in geology is interesting, however if you decide to use this as a concept for your final composition, try to ensure that there is some 3-Dimensionality in your overall placement. The principal axes of both D & SD seem to be running parallel to each other & hence losing one dimension. Overall I think you need to better differentiate your rectilinear volumes in terms of thickness for Model 2. As discussed in class, the SD & SO should be smaller in size relative to D for Model 1 as well. Be more deliberate about whether you what to place the SO perpendicular or at an angle to D for Model 1. At the moment it is neither.
