An object of Measures

Par BLANC Pauline, HAUSEL Anna, 25/10/18

Throughout our exploration of the riverside of the right bank of the Venoge, we took interest in the multiple vertical objects surrounding. From trees, stumps and bushes, to poles, signs and docks, the surface of the ground is covered in many interesting elements.

Taking a special interest in the middle of our portion of river - defined by points P4 to P6 - where half of the terrain was covered in stumps and grass and the other half by almost impenetrable bushes and thick cut-grass. 

As we went to remeasure this territory, we realised there was an issue in the original data we collected.

Along with this correction, we plotted the topography of the bank. We decided to leave 1.5cm of river in the plaster.

Then, when every pair in the studio recreated their measures in wood, and copied their path onto a common drawing, we had to incorporate the dimension of the wood into the plaster.

We therefore decided to incorporate the legs that our plaster would have as a marking of the elements that so interested us on the terrain. We used two conveniently placed parts of the wooden structure as a "path" that would be legs that were to repose upon the structure. Our two sections of terrain mentioned above are defined by an absence of legs on the empire, flatter half, and a system of four legs on the other half. One of the four is a large block to indicate the thick wildlife, and the other three represent - though not entirely accurately - the three ports.
