Research

This is one of Oh Seung Yul’s work, the “Moamoa, A Decade”. This space was filled of blow up yellow tubes for people to push through and find there way around. This space inspires me for my own design as i essentially want the same thing. I could re think the materials of my design, maybe like this they could be a more squishy material so that it doesn’t matter if people bang into them.

Interim Presentation

These are initial explorations of the textures of both the site (Masons lane) and dishwashing. The middle image is a mash up of both which creates another type of texture. One thing i notice from looking at the textures of both the site and my ritual is there is a lot of circular shapes. These circular shapes is something I could look into more and explore more when creating my space.

I wanted to explore bubbles more so I decided to add food colouring to the bubble mixture out of dishwashing liquid, once i blew it onto the piece of paper this is the shapes it made. Again, more circles.

 

 

 

A mash up of the sound from letting the water out and a video i took of myself going down the steps at Masons Lane. Because the feeling I get from the sound of letting the water out stresses me out I want to create a space that in a way mimics this idea of being stressed and getting annoyed at the sound.

When I think about being stressed and in situations I do not like I think of darkness and not being able to see where I am going, so these are a couple of sketches based of this idea.

I made a quick sketch up model based off my idea of being stressed out in my space. I have added round light bars into my space,  my idea is that they would only give off a very small amount of light so you can not really make out where you are going up the stairs. As well I also want the lights to flicker from on and off so it creates a kind of strobe like affect which stresses the person out who is walking up the steps.

 

A quick video I made up of how I want the lights to flicker and change.

 

 

 

 

Micro Ritual Model

Myself and Brittany got the micro ritual of Flexing your muscle. We wanted to focus on the idea of tendons and muscles tensing and when you flex one muscle others can go loose. The video below shows how our design worked, you pull one cord, things tense and then move whilst other strings go loose or are still loose.
