As explained to Ed and Francesco, I have four protagonists and for each of the protagonists I will be exploring/ representing the site at different scales e.g. Derek 1:20, Redstart 1:2, Garden 1:200, Dungeness landscape 1:2000. At the moment the design is progressing through model making. I am exploring the possibilities of preserving the most important aspect of the house/ landscape to each protagonist.
Through the Eyes of Derek Jarman: Representational Scale 1:20
- Preservation of Derek’s bedroom as his most important space
- Rachel Whiteread style models- form-work completed
- Does the material have to be concrete?? – look at Do-ho-such exhibition- different way of casting volumes in this instance using a delicate material to show mass.
- Drawing to show DJ’s bedroom casting sequence
- Drawing to show disassembly of room- and reassembly?- what is the methodology of taking the house apart?
- Neues museum collaboration between Julian Harrap and David Chipperfield
- Drawing to show creation of framework- in-situ casting? How does Rachel Whiteread do it?
- Decide upon casting material and scale of cast
- Concrete research- aggregate? Size, colour? Cement colour? Vibration settling? Finshes- sandblast, acid etch/ wash? jack- hammer, retardants.
Through the Eyes of the Black Redstart: Representational Scale 1:2
- What size in reality?
- Is it experienced at a human scale?
- What is an appropriate material?
- What is the construction sequence and structure?
