Intangible Energy

On Tuesday, I was talking about converting intangible energy to a tangible form. I presented about how our environment is surrounded with electromagnet, yet people are unaware about it. Especially in terms of electromagnet emitted by human brain waves.   Image above shows how the magnetic field changes with the change of activities within a…

Rachel Whiteread Sketchbook

I am interested in the way that Rachel Whiteread represents aspects of interest within her sketchbooks and her use of graph paper to highlight a particular mass or form. I have mocked up a few tests to exlpore how I might adoprt a similar style to document the positive and negative voids found in Dungeness.

From found objects to found landscapes

Marcel Duchamp stated that found objects are: “every day objects based on a reaction of visual indifference, with at the same time a total absence of good or bad taste” After my research on found objects I discovered that they are a way of understanding the landscape we collect them from. Updating the booklets from…

How to Build an Island?

In parallel to the Island books I have been putting together details of how one might construct an island, be it through land reclamation or salvaging of North sea oil rigs.  As well as a the book I am developing a technical drawing, showing the process of making the islands, the start of the drawing is…

Amphibious Architecture

Since looking into amphibious architecture I have come across a handful of current solutions used that have been developed in areas that have been at the mercy of extreme flooding in recent years. The first I have been looking at have come out of the New Orleans flooding from Katrina in 2005. Architects have designed…

Waterways

Since our tutorials on Tuesday I have been diagramming and drawing up a lot of the research I have been focusing on. After reading several pieces of writing about types of water and ways of categorizing water i have compiled the information into a series of drawings that identify the five key methods of defining…

Precedent studies week

My main focus last week was to find precedent studies that are related to my project, they are such as: 1. To find bonding material that can solidify shingles in Dungeness. (for underground structure purpose) Precedent: Turning dunes into architecture, Magnus Larsson Outcome: To use resin as my proposed bonding substrate. Feedback: Do experiments to…

Feedback: This week it is essential that I make a push for drawings that convery my ideas Go a step further to create a complete paralell between Derek Jarman and the redstart Think about what type of void project this is going to be Go back over previous conversations to make sure that all feedback…

found objects II

In modern art, the term “found object” (a translation of the French phrase “objet trouvé”) is used to describe an object, found by an artist, which – with minimal modification – is then presented as a work of art. The idea is, that the artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic quality…

World Flooding

As part of my study into flooding in Dungeness, I have began to broaden my view to gain a more holistic perspective on the current flooding issue to then narrow my vision and focus on Dungeness. In order to do this I have began a drawing that looks at the current areas of high to low…

Transylvania

During our time in Transylvania I was focusing primarily on two key themes: firstly the effect of water and its relationship with its surrounding (Turda Salt mine) and secondly traditional joinery methods (Ethnographic Museum). I have began researching into ways in which simple, single material junctions are made, from Romania to Japan to Dungeness.  …

Underground world : Human vs Animal

The drawing below shows the types of burrowing animals in Dungeness. It shows the different scale of body sizes and the functions of burrow (shelter, protection from danger/weather, feeding, and etc.).   Below is an imaginary underground structure. I shifted the animal scale into human scale to create a tunnel-like playful underground structure.   As a result of the existing…

Frontieres – Architecture between the sacred and profane (Transylvania) Pt.1
