Breaktime is over

Ahhh what a nice break. It’s been cool giving myself time to relax. I thought I’d treat myself for the hard work of Unit1 which btw I got feedback for last week and it was very positive.

This was very encouraging and I am eager to progress this project to see what I’ll produce as the end nears in a few months. It’s roughly 5 months to the end of the course. I’m not counting the rest of this month or July. You have to give yourself contingency time don’t you?

So just to recount my goals for the next few months…

I need to:

  • explore further lighting options
  • experiment with interactive elements of lighting use
  • look at further materials that could be used for sculptural aspects of the work e.g, aluminium?
  • build second prototype by mid-March? (may need to revise this one later)
  • keep taking photographs of work as I go along (I like how these have come out so far and the process has turned into an artistic practice in itself)

I’m sure there will be more to add to this list but even this is enough to keep me going till I need to produce the final version. But then so much could happen in the next few months so this is only an indication of what I’m going to aim for.

Oh and here’s an image I created last week. It is a combination of hand-drawn and digital illustration (best way I can think of describing it). I think black and white is just my thing. Even though I contemplate doing coloured work I tend to always come back to the black and white. I guess its a classic combo that always looks good.

    Hi, salam Sara. Really enjoyed skimming thru your blog posts, such fine artwork displayed. I enjoy learning about 3D structural design and biological system symmetry as a hobby (such as Synergetics by R B Fuller of geodesic dome fame), the visual appearance of these pieces is fascinating. Thanks!

      Walaikum asalaam. Thanks for your comment. It’s interesting that you mention the geodesic dome as my research has bought me very close to architectural aspects where shapes play a large role too. Also, synergetics is something I was taught whilst doing my BSc in a module titled Systems Thinking. I can’t say I paid more than the average attention to it back then but it’s all coming back now.

    I had fun drawing some images in MS Paint( http://the-arc-ddeden.blogspot.com/2010/02/interim.html ) and lately handcrafted a tourist piece, an origami-style paper dodecahedron with captioned thumbnail photos of the local bay scenery (mansions, sea otters…) on the 12 pentagonal faces, enclosed by a tri-axial woven truncated icosahedral ‘sphere basket’ (sepak takraw) of paper strips, that was a challenging project! BTW Synergetics is on the web:
