PEOPLE ARE STRANGE
Design a series of drawings using PROFILES OF PEOPLE in the space. Consider the differences between group dynamics and individual motion. Starting with a quick Leading Lines assignment, select a person or group of people to observe and track. How does a space change when people become involved?
OPTION ONE: Sketch (in no more than five minutes per drawing) how a single person moves through the space, capturing keyframes of their interactions.
OPTION TWO: Sketch how a group of people interact within a space, capturing a single instant—how does the group fill the volume?
- foreground (dark line weight)
- middle ground (medium line weight)
- background (light line weight)
- spliced photographs
- movement (and notation for this movement)
This series should explore how the dynamic nature of human interaction alters a space, and analyze how people move through the area—is it quickly, slowly, direct, meandering, etc.?
Complete no less than five drawings per location, capturing the motion in each—fast sketching is key.
