WORLD OF JELLO

knowhere_worldOfJello-01.jpg

Develop a series of very carefully constructed drawingsEXPLORING SPATIAL VOLUMES through a plan-obliqueanalysis of the negative spaces. To do this, imagine filling the space you are in with massive amounts of jello, then removing the “formwork,” or walls and other elements that make up that space. What are the boundaries and limits of the space? What happens at thresholds, openings, or other types of borders?


INCLUDE:    

  • detail (consider column ornament, sculptural elements, eaves, etc.)

MAY INCLUDE:    

  • tonal color

FOCUS:    

  • precision and proper proportion    
  • form    
  • alignments    
  • ornament as necessary to properly describe the volume

AVOID:    

  • gradient    
  • over-simplification

This drawing series is designed to provide a greater understanding of the details and elements that are used in the true definition of a space’s volume.

Complete no less than one carefully constructed drawing per location, spending no less than thirty minutes per drawing before moving to another location or volume.
