I am interested to the area of Williamsburg around the Domino Sugar Refinery. My site drawing is a combination the elevation of Domino Sugar Factory and the section of Lowline which they both related to my light and shadow study. Since the site of the factory under redevelopment, part of the factory was demolished, the existing part would be express pin pens and pencils and the demolished part would be in pencils only to make a contrast. And also referring to the time movement and chasing Janet at the beginning o the project.
going to focus myself to finish it by Saturday
After finish the drawing, I will go back to portfolio and exploration study. I saw this photography portfolio in Photographer’s Gallery Bookstore. The photo and simple description drove my into the atmosphere that the photographer wanted to present. I am thinking how to balance the length of description and number of image in page can still bring in a sense like this. Also I need to experiment the layer of circles and cut out holes as layer effect in my portfolio.
I also found something interesting in the material library.
A glass panel with silver pieces placed as 45 degree inside. The light resource is suggested to be place at the bottom to create this lighting effect. As seen on the left image, the shadow of the light is also the reflection of the light that glowing to produce an effect like the shooting star.
As inspired from these above, I am thinking to make some by myself with different kind of materials and place them under the light to explore material study under light for my exploration study and the later use of the project material. (This may not be finish by Tuesday, but will keep it updated.)
I am looking into the sugar refinery process to understand how the factory worked in general. It may provide some hints on the building layout.
*I am still waiting for The New York Building Department’s reply and I will find out later the possibility to visit the remain factory in New York.
