For the first set of experiments for my unit 1.1 design literacy project, I have been looking at shape. Specifically looking at line, plane, mass and void.
Point to line to plane.
I first looked at how a square is constructed from point, to line, to plane. The square starts with a point, then forms into a line, then forms into a plane.
I then also experimented with the concept that a line is an infinite set of points. Below are some images of my experiments.
Mass. I then looked at mass and how to make a square without actually drawing the outline of the square. I tried using different media; first a stencil of a square and playing around with Sharpie’s, pencil crayons and fine liners.
Then I looked at watercolours and inks, wet a square shape on the paper and experimented how the inks and paints will stay within the watered shape.
I used the same methods and techniques to experiment with void, however this time coloured the area outside the square so the negative space would create the square.
