Scorpio

This semester has been… CRAY CRAY!!!

New projects weekly, new learning experiences, new experiments, and definitely new finished pieces! I now have a new piece that I especially like: my scorpion.

Here was the brief I received in my Communication: Surface, Object, Space class:

PROJECT 2: SERIAL PLANES

in this project, we will apply serial plane concepts and the principles of design to the creation of a foam core board 3D form using additive and subtractive methods.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon successful completion of the project, students will have the knowledge and ability to:

  1. Define a basic vocabulary of elements, principles and processes relevant to three dimensional form;
  2. Define material properties and their relationship to specific tools, processes and craft practices;
  3. Engage relevant processes of form manipulation and representation between two and three dimensions;
  4. Employ appropriate tools and techniques to execute and inform the generation of material outcomes;
  5. Document systematic, iterative process through appropriate photographic and verbal reflection.

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

Create a three-dimensional abstract or representational form that is a minimum of 12″x12″x12″ using white or black foam core board.

This form can be free standing, hanging or mounted on a base (the design of the base should enhance the created form).

Incorporate repetition and gradation of size and/or shape.

Ideally, you will include in some area of your design an opening to reveal the interior space construction, and in this way, explore the positive and negative space possibilities within your design.

Note that the edges of the foam core will create lines, the layering of the planes will create a volume with positive and negative space, and natural and artificial light will create gradation and shadows. Use these factors to your advantage.

SO WHAT DID I MAKE?

I decided to create a scorpion, following the criteria above, and photograph it.
