Pandora’s Box (Part 1)


Both these themes evoke a sense of conflict and hence I decided to name my models after historic battles – Siege of Stalingrad, the Invasion of Normandy and Battle of Waterloo.


Use of piercing and wedging to reinforce this idea of discordance and conflict within the models.

Initial MODELS



Issues to be addressed : Width of SO too similar to Length of D, Presence of D and SD slightly conflicting, overall form too static to display Discordance, 1/3 ratio not potentialised fully.



Issues to be addressed: Length of SO and Width of D almost the same, 1/3 ratio not potentialised fully, use of cuboids throughout need to be adjusted to avoid lack of dynamism.



Issues to be addressed: SO too thin and is hidden from some view points apart from the ones shown. Model also seemed very similar when compared with Model 1. Hence I decided to focus on the previous two models for further exploration.

Final Sketch Models



Changes :

  • SO is thinned down drastically from its initial width into a long toothpick.
  • SO is also pierced through both the SD and D diagonally to convey emphasised Discordance instead of simply being wedged.
  • 1/3 ration enforced as much as possible without compromising concept



Changes :

  • Height of SO decreased to compensate for its width’s similarity to Length of D
  • SD’s Length is increased while it is thinned and pierced through D
  • SO is wedged into SD with a gap that acts a void instead of being flushed all the way in

  1. Prav did you take any photos of the actual 3D Sketch Models you made? Would have been good to include those instead of just the computer generated images.Thanks for the detailed 2D Sketch Analysis! The names given here are really befitting to Discordance 😉

  2. Prav, do get round to posting your Final Model(s) and TWO applications for each from a different angle. Hope you at least photographed both your models before you tried ammending /broke them? Am also still waiting for your 2D Sketch Analysis of an interesting object… (TT:)
