Pause

My two brief and direct questions (!):   This is the current state of my microcosm drawing, please can you suggest changes? Also I’m not sure it needs to be printed at A1, rather A2 or just a double page spread in the magazine? https://www.dropbox.com/s/dof2hjr3z433jct/Microcosm%20006.jpg?dl=0 2. This is the current state of my project statement,…

Re-Labelling The Pause

Since Tuesday I have been focused on sorting out my structure. I finished the bridge: I have also been doing a structural model as the way to introduce my details and to give quite a tangible view of the constellation (the final image will be an axonometric and feature the cloud though). It’s currently got the bridges,…

Easter Update

Over the break so far I have been focussing on the design of the actual landscape itself, because I found I needed to tackle this to be able to move forward with my taxonomy and layered magazine edition. I have modelled the majority of my site: Vanderbilt Hall is still in progress, but almost done…

8 Weeks To Go

The sickness got to me after the crits, so sorry for the late blog. I appreciate the feedback, although I’m not sure how to progress in some areas (not that I don’t want to, just confused!) so could use a bit of guidance. The questions about my scheme being an intervention have concerned me. I…

The Train Has Stalled

So I’ve finished the latest drawing on duration of pauses in the station: Duration of Pause 1 and did a spatial relationship with it which looks slightly like a jelly fish, but relates quite well to my floating landscape model and a previous drawing of GCT (the one with the smoke wisps linking the plan layers) :…

Quick Update

My list of things I’d like to produce for the cross crit are: Drawing of how long people are pausing in the station Timetable of pauses Indication of city wide impact Define view points within the station And if I have time after that, a first person view point of each experience. There’s probably something…

Pause 16/02/25

So this post is meant to be about what I’m struggling with – which currently is time! My next steps are currently planned as: First person views of texting, smoking, and taking a photo Drawing up the water fountain (with the traces of wear and sediment) Carrying out tests on my second model Another drawing of…

11/02/16

    Since the tutorial I have had a go at the conceptual collage:   This is following my current thoughts of creating ‘tanks’ for the experiences, situated within the voids between the main concourse and the waiting room to combine them. The space between the columns is similar to some of the windows on…

Week 10

Toby’s questions: 1) NAME: Does the project have a name? Not yet 2) QUESTION: What is at stake in the project? (Something political/ social/ economic..?) What is being questioned and why? What is the research question? The issue of ‘pause’ is being questioned, first in the study of the bench as my object, and it…

Is It Thursday Already?

I’ve been refining my design portfolio, and have decided on 5 magazines to form the components (I’m expecting to have 5 issues, but if it’s more I have a secondary list of magazines). Mag 1 – About the Pause: Mag 2 – Grand Central Terminal: Mag 3-5 – ??? (no particular order):    The New…

Completely Lost!

Trying to pick a site in New York, and it is going very very poorly. I’ve been trying to look into the parameters of pausing/duration/speed/material change, but in my mind I’m only turning up abandoned buildings (Ellis Island Hospitals and underground disused subway stations), or major land marks (like Grand Central station or Central Park…

Timeline

My timeline/time based drawing of the walk and two images containing additional information which accompany it. The timeline and audio circles can be read like a clock from the noon position. The drawings explore the layered narratives within the walk from the standpoint of ‘presence’ during the walk and what the participant is actually focused on,…

Week 3: Decay

I have continued on from the tutorial discussion compiling catalogues and building mini benches (experimenting predominantly with cement at the moment). Still exploring ways of testing decay – a mixture of finding already decayed materials and attempting to rapidly decay them myself. Not sure where it’s going – but should be fun…

Presence

Draft upload Catherine I am looking at the issue of presence: which timeline the participant is experiencing during the walk, as these often differ from the immediate physical experience. This has fallen into eight categories which are; historic, Janet 1 (physical walk), Janet 2 (thoughts), Janet 3 (fiction), participant (direct instruction from Janet), future, fiction (murder,…
