2019-2020, 3D I and 3D II
Positive and Negative space
This class is about an ordered sequence of purely visual experiences to develop a recognition of the abstract elements in any design situation. The goal is to become so familiar with the principles of abstraction that one automatically thinks of a visual problem in terms of organized relationships.

Each problem is an exploration of the relationship between a line, plane, and solid under different conditions such as rectilinear, curvilinear, a combination of both. It is a study of forms in terms of proportions, balance, positive and negative space, harmony, and much more. These tools can further be applied to solve visual problems in product design.

Each exercise begins with initial concepts and combinations between given forms. These concepts are expressed using clay prototypes. The chosen relationship undergoes a series of iterations, in terms of scale, proportions, and balance. The final form in harmony is presented as a plaster scultpure.
This class is a culmination of spatial sensibility from my architectural background and scalar exploration in Industrial design. All my designs are a play of space and form.
