Loose Ends

This week I have been finalising the design for all three sites (although the design can never be ‘finalised’) so I guess the design is changeable right up until the last minute. At the moment each cottage has been visualised up to the garden stage. I have been trying to set up this final drawing…

Drawing Types

Drawing Type 1.) Stages of the Lifecycle of Decay and Renewal: Storyboard showing what the ‘intervention’/ act of passive decay exactly is at each stage. This drawing will be used as a sort of key, so it is clear when looking at any realisation drawing, what stage of the lifecycle it relates to. Thumbnails will…

Garden and Landscape

This week I have: Drawn the existing obsolete structures along the path to the coast (this is where the project began and where Jarman ‘beachcombed’ for his objects to build his garden) Drawn the neighbouring buildings to Prospect Cottage- ‘Anchorage’ and ‘Pleasant Cottage’ – these are the first sites that my process of decay and…

Final Tutes

In response to lask week’s feedback from the crit: 1.) It was not clear from what I showed last week what was existing and what I have altered as the architect. This exploded drawing shows what I propose as exisiting: To do: Outline exactly what the materials are and how long they might take to…

Reflections on Cross Crit

This is what I presented: 1.) Intro- This project is about… Vision- that is seeing differently through the eyes of another in order to present a different perspective Spaces becoming architectural spaces by chance Through a process of decay and deterioration These key ideas have arrived at an interest in…shifting perception through the process of…

Brief- Seeing Differently

Developed Brief  This project is a critical reflection of Derek Jarman’s Prospect Cottage and the landscape surrounding it. The process of critiquing the site is through a mode of ‘seeing differently’ and in particular the altering of perception through the eyes of four protagonists who each make the landscape their habitat; Derek Jarman, The Black…

Post Crit Thoughts and To Do List

New Work Presented: To go alongside existing drawings: ‘Derek Jarman’s Design Principles’ and ‘The Black Redstart Nesting Principles’ The Garden: Stages of Growth  Dungeness: History and Growth  Proposal To design the ideal state of preservation/ decay for each occupant of Prospect Cottage. Each of these preserved states is not designed ‘for’ the protagonist but becomes an…

Week 0_Nesting Principles

At the last tutorial we discussed how my portfolio was missing drawings from the perspective of the Redstart. For example I have outlined Derek Jarman’s garden design priciples, but had not discussed the Redstart’s nesting principles anywhere in my portfolio so far. Now I have two drawings which can be read in parallel. Derek’s principles…

Motion Stills

I am in the process of creating a series of material palette/ component part drawings in the style of Todd McLellan’s Motions Stills: http://www.toddmclellan.com/thingscomeapar This drawing is an attempt to categories the different material groups found in Dungeness (work in progress): Rust: ‘Things come Apart’- Derek Jarman’s House (Work in Progresss) I am thinking about how…

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.

Tutorial Feedback 16th November

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…

Week 7: Storyboard Version 1

Feedback: Think about how does the bird view the power station? Height? Surface? Void? Drawing an exploded axonometric of birds nest for technology Drawings from the perspective of the bird. The site from a bird’s eye view. A page on Redstart specification? Size? weight? Wingspan? The whole portfolio should anaylse bird vs. Derek Jarman- making…

Derek Jarman’s Sketchbooks

Follwing on from my research into Derek Jarman- the sketchbooks of the film maker have given me some inspiration for a portfolio format. ‘With their snippets of poetry, drawings, film storyboards, thoughts, plans and photographs, Derek Jarman’s sketchbooks offer a rare insight into an artist’s mind at work.’ https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/gallery/2013/aug/25/derek-jarman-sketchbooks-in-pictures#/?picture=415719736&index=7   I like the way he…

Portfolio Layout

Here are some portfolio examples that I like the look of. I like the ratio of white space imagery and the different size of imagery within the composition. There is a certain balance introduced by the black and white images.   Here, I like the introduction of colour within the text.   I am beginning…

Through the Eyes of an Animal

Through the Eyes of an Animal

http://thecreatorsproject.vice.com/en_uk/blog/virtual-reality-lets-you-become-a-mystical-forest-creature   Whilst researching some ideas for the visual quality of my portfolio- I came across this… ‘Wearing large, moss-faced black headsets, users journey through an abstracted LIDAR-scanned woodland and soar above the forest canopy—captured using 360° aerial drone cameras—while coming into contact with various creatures. Some of these were captured by a photogrammetry rig,…

Week 2- Nest

My next drawing will be a detail of a Black Redstark’s nest within on of the abandoned ruins on the site of Dungeness. I have identified a selection of images of buildings to draw (seen below). The drawings will act as a study of the structure of nest within the shell of the existing building….

Week 1- Black Redstart

Reading the essay by Brian Dillon about Dungeness I found this quote quite interesting: “I have decided that the Black redstart… will be my mascot for today. The bird, rarely seen in Britain before the 1940s took a liking to…industrial and derelict buildings, and finally to the nuclear power stations dotted around the coast. The black…

Week 0- Energy Up

I chose this as another interesting Exquisite Corpse college because it represents all of the changes in weather conditions on the site through the misty grey sky over the electricity pylons to the warm sunshine casting shadows within the living room. I also like the contrast between old and new materials such as the old…
