How do you create the illusion of movement in a still frame ?
what does the effect of movement creates in an empty space ?
Last week we went to Evian to measure and analyse last year's project
Under the rain we measured, sketched, analyzed a 3x3 meter cube of our choice of the structure. The complexity of the structure combined with a short amount of time given made it very laborious to gather all the measurements we needed to later draw precise drawings of it.
Back in the studio, we almost took more time sketching and trying to understand how to draw it than actually drawing. Despite the apparent emptiness of our cube, the complexity of certain parts and measurements (the diagonals for example) made it confusing to lay out.
Trying to understand to structure
Sketches and more sketches for a better 2D visualization of a 3D object
Our second (vertical) mold which we reenforced with four horizontal plates, shellac on the inside and plastified outside. Our impenetrable (or rather unescapable) castle is taking shape
Mountains of plaster
Teamwork was a key part to making this possible, even between pairs. We helped each other in a coordinated work
The final pour, used hands
Perspective drawings, a new work giving us a different vision
To conclude this first phase, I believe I now understand the purpose of Crafts. It unlocked important tools for us that are going to enable us to conduct the year long project with a better understanding of the work. It was an interesting introduction to test our capabilities to plan and organize micro projects, identify our strength and weaknesses and work on them.
