Dialog sketches

These are some of my ideas for the dialog project. I started out with two circles together with the fondue skewers going through them, but it created too many spaces. Then I tried triangles back to back, with two skewers and two cards on the bottom, however; it didn't stay glued together. I next tried drawing different square ideas and still having too many spaces in the ideas. Finally, I made an "s" like shape that would be closed on one side and open on the other. The 12" skewers would stick in between the cards (4"x 6" Bristol board) vertically and one horizontally.

Compare Contrast

The project on the bottom uses the paper to make the curve and mine uses the skewers to make the curve. The other project has repetition in the way the paper is held by the skewers as well as the skewers themselves. Mine on the other hand has repetition in the way the skewers rotate around an axis. The other project makes the eye move in a spiral motion and mine draws the eye to the center. I do think that the designer could have used three even steps instead of two small and a large. My project sits on the ground while the other is out reaching the feel of moving upwards.

Unity Final

This is my final product for the Unity project. I used twelve 12" skewers and twelve 4" x 6" Bristol board cards. I liked the way that the skewers made the curve even though the skewers are straight and that I used no adhesive.

Distance Drawings 3

This was my last distance drawing of an electrical plug. I like it the best because it shows how much detail is lost when something is far away.

Distance Drawings 2

This is a door handle for my second distance drawing. I didn't like this one as much because I didn't get all the much distance change between drawings

Distance Drawings 1

This is my frist distance drawing of a column.

Skewers 2

This is when I first stuck the skewers through the Bristol board and turned the skewers sideways to make the curve in the center.


The first two forms of the Unity project. The first being the building like structure with the twelve 4" x 6" Bristol board cards forming the walls and the base. I didn't like how the base was there and didn't help the rest of the project. The next was the clock like structure. I feel that unity means bringing things together in one place, so I fanned the skewers out and laid the cards out in a circular pattern. I didn't like how it was so flat.

Twig Final

This is my final twig project. I used card stock and scotch tape to create a fan like structure and a triangle shape base, which represent man made buildings where as the twigs are from nature. Man made things are often very liner and have limits to what they can do. Things in nature grow however and where ever they wish and have no limit.

Leaf Project Final

My final leaf project used a textured paper and green tissue paper to accent a red Japanese maple leaf. The four points on the box and the four added points from the tissue paper reemphasize that the leaf has seven leaves and a stem making it eight parts.
