• Planes : The complete project

    Par Edward Forsey, 19/12/16

    A plane is a surface which extends infinitely far. Planes can cross each other, they create intersections and corners, but                                 it is not necessarily in these points that they cease to exist.

    The painting is the starting point of the project. We will interpret what we see, with the aim to use what is found to pursue the planes project. The space in the painting is a starting point for our work.

    The first plaster cast for the project. The space remains clearly identifiable, while the most visible elements from the painting  are  kept, many  other details no longer  appear. The ones  left are the ones which appear more important       when the painting is first observed.


    A heading has been found, but it must be explored further...

    A second cast is produced. The aim is to contain the original space within a quadrilateral shape. New walls have appeared, as well as new spaces with them. The walls also gain some thickness, visible through the openings.

    A cardboard model, this time implemented into the proto-structure. The area where the wood crosses is used to limit out the space, and it's completed with the  addition  of the main walls from the  previous cast. The  walls lose the  limitations imposed by the quadrilateral shape, to become planes which extend beyond the intersections.

    The project begins to take shape. The walls will be made of wood and plaster, which will be cast inside the proto structure itself.  The latter is  protected with tape and plastic against any overflow.  The wood  slats of the proto  structure traverse, and are integrated into the cast. The structure is cut in one point to allow the full opening in the plaster.

                            - The plaster casts are placed on a grid, following different criteria which can be used

                               to define the characteristics of the fragment. The resulting placement will then be 

                                         used to integrate the casts into the project from " Measures ".

              - A new plaster cast, with some modifications. A new space has appeared, as

                   well as a transitory space. Three extra openings also give the possibility

                                      to circulate around in the new spaces. -

         - The cast adopts a new shape. It leaves a rectangular footprint, while the spaces remain 

            erratic as a consequence of the placement of the walls. The light is guided by a new 

                   perforation in the ceiling of the space, further emphasising the openings. -
