Triptych

Ok so this week I’ve modified the set of schedules to provide more consistencies and correlations between each time period. Each is a bit more fleshed out which has led to a few revelations as to which details are important, such as the windows, the threshold into the building etc.

 

Whats interesting about the threshold is that materially it has stayed the same, but to the different users of the building across time, it means something different. To the assembly line operator and the investment adviser, it marks the separation between live and work. For the artist, it marks a dichotomy between livework, and the outside world.

So far I’ve managed to work out a workflow for visualising the different spaces. The drawings are moved around 3dsMax, Autocad, photoshop and iullustrator and take quite a lot of time to produce. However I’m almost happy with this kind of representation, as I feel its in keeping with the detail drawing style.

One thought on “Triptych

  1. Good development of the daily schedules of the three individuals and I like what you say about the threshold that materially remains the same but performs differently for the different users. At the moment that scale of how the scenarios interface with the detail and how its spatial implication on their daily routine plays out is missing in the three scales of detail, room and building. The room scale is too zoomed out perhaps? It would be great to have a drawing that shows the three different lives/ routines/ environments and the detail spanning across times, programmes and uses. Like the Richard McGuire example ‘Here’ but without the squared off boundaries, maybe colour starts to play a role to show changing time periods, or degrees of fading in and out (bringing back a bit of the old transparency techniques to this rendered textured drawing style – which is great and should continue, Im just trying to think about how you can collapse these three moments into a single drawing to show their relationship to the detail.) I thought this article really captured the understanding of time present in Here and also similarly in your project: http://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/time-remixed and also this example was something I found interesting back when I was a student where the production designer Patrick Bill built remembered interiors into existing houses to recreate the childhood homes of a few celebrities (it was for a Channel 4 programme), anyway this idea of shifting time periods, existing and remembered, and questioning which is more real is what I thought might be interesting: https://vimeo.com/24087141 – keep going with the triptychs for Tuesday and try to zoom in for that middle room-scale so we can see how the same architecture responds to the different inhabitants, scenarios and time periods.
