Hey guys, firstly, I’d like to say thanks for a great year, it was a thoroughly enjoyable one! So thanks for all the guidance and inspiration. Secondly. I made some videos. They’re quite basic but with the other work to do I think I’m going to just keep them simple to just illustrate the principles….

Bleeding Timespace

      I’ve been working on the drawing we discussed on tuesday, about bleeding the time periods together. The top image shows 3 states/ time periods coexisting adjacent to each other. The bottom, less finished drawing, shows the site as would be if the wall detail pulled away part of the wall, bleeding the…

Axonometric Time

    I’m working on producing a list of what needs to be done, whats possible in the time left. As well as this, I’ve been working on those drawings and improving them. The image below shows the axo detail with the axonometric time idea as well as a new coding system which takes inspiration…

Easter Work

So far, over the Easter, I’ve been fairly busy trying to both get work together, whilst reading and making a chaotic journey to Berlin via home, which was great fun. I spent some time dragging a friend around various sites of historical importance like the topography of terror, Chipperfield’s Neues Museum, East Side Gallery, the…

¡VAMOS!

I think moving forward from the crit, I’m going to identify the elements of the building which can change, which can’t change etc. within a drawing/ set of drawings. Also drawing the reprogramming occurring side by side is important I think. I’ll make an inventory of possible uses (performance spaces, rehearsal spaces, bike repair shops, workshops, residences etc.)…

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…

Project overview

Question: The project examines aspects and philosophies of time in relation to the act of re appropriating/ reterritoriliazing space, how the functions of buildings mutate (as opposed to evolve) over and through time, and how the fabric of the building, both on the level of structure and surface, reflect these mutations, if at all. The project wishes…

Transfer Work

  For the drawing, I wanted to examine a building at 68 Jay Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn, quite close to the site I mentioned last week. The building was built in the daylight factory style in 1915 by a New York Architect called William Higginson. From what I can tell, Higginson did a lot of…

Quick collage

This is a quick collage I made to try and get the solvent transfer technique down. I noticed that the work of Robert Rauschenberg is fantastic in terms of the bleeding of images and overlapping transparencies so I tried pushing the techniques for my own use. The collage is a quick study of the elevator…

Indeterminacy – Dale

I’ve been looking for a way this week to represent the continuous, durational flow of time this week materially, trying to expand upon the stitching and weaving between the two instants. So I looked into Kath Shonfield and her ideas about how the medium through which an idea or object is presented greatly effects the…

Object sketch

  I decided to take the idea of the tie further and examine the relationship between the two ties, the 1999 tie that Janet spotted, and the tie that I consequently noticed when Cardiff pointed it out to me. The idea is that if I stitch two ties together, elongating the connection between them and…

Instants

I decided to focus on the events conjured by the audio, and the way in which Cardiff arguably uses a a variety of images throughout the walk, changing the personal experience of the walk. To do this I am looking at the way in which both Henri Bergson and Gaston Bachelard view time. Bergson’s theory…
