Project 1 A Dou Gong City 6

From the 8th word of the 3rd line of the 2nd paragraph of the lesson 13 in the Chinese textbook for 1st grade students in elementary schools, the word ‘eraser‘ was taught at the same location for every students in this city, and then we do not doubt about its definition ever. That is, our entire education system in this city is also a tessellation.


Dou Gong system Dou Gong system is a traditional Chinese architecture technology developed to support heavy roof on a wood structure. It is an interesting and efficient way for buildings, and now is current in most countries of EastAsia. The pattern on this page was created by repeating this system. At the right side, there are two basic units come out from the pattern, and they are the units going to be used on the following pages.

UNIT 1


TYPE 1 / SWIRLING The type 1 model was composed by swirling, which creating a swirling spaces inside. The concept of the building function is by swirling layers (same units developed in a swirling way to extend) and the final model is a 9 layers structure. While the main structure is rigid like a column, the spaces inside are penetrable and connected.

TYPE 2 / UPSIDE DOWN The type 2 model was constructed by a pair of reverse parts, each part included 4 pairs of type 2 units. In this way, the expansion is limited in vertical direction but free in plain. By intersecting two reverse parts, it created a complicated texture in the middle. TYPE 2 unit

TYPE 3 / COMPACT The building progress of type 3 is a little like the type 1, which both develop in swirling way. However, there is a difference between them that the type 3 rounds a circle for only three units when the type 1 dose for four. It is surprising that a circle can be done in either three units or four units, and the difference in result is that type 3 looks oblique.

Integration With two 6-units compositions, it is able to combine them to a more complex structure. Because the units were made in grids, they are easy to be combined in any corner, direction, and angle. On this page, here are two manners to integrate two six-units composition.

TYPE 4 / ACCUMULATING The type 4 model is accumulating. That is, with the same accompany principles, the units can develop in both vertical and horizontal ways. Beside, by using this accumulating method, it creates several new tessellation patterns when observed from different angles. TYPE 4 unit

Live in City People who live in city are usually trapped in complicated minds because of multiple choices. The way they are dwelling, the way they are talking, and the way they are thinking, these movements effected each other and finally created a complicated tessellation surrounding. It lacks something simple, penetrable, and easy to understand.

This graph was cut from the Leaf which on the previous page. Without the cuspidate parts of the leaf, it looks like several holes connected with a smooth surface. The following are the 3D models which inspired by this 2D imagine. These models were made from paper tubes, and nipped by hand.

There are four types of circles arrangements, and which different between the sizes, numbers, and positions of circles. From the graph A to the graph D, we can see that the central parts of the circles structures do not change their forms much. Besides, inside the structures B and D, there are more beams support in various directions, so they can stand the forces from different angles more easily.

Tubes Bridge When sticks gather together, they get strong. The model which gathered by four wooden sticks and ten cut bamboo tubes is much stronger because of the arrangement. The bamboo tubes can distract shearing stress to the long wooden sticks, which makes the materials all in one. With this construct method, it creat a interesting interior space as the simulated bridge built in this method.

Imaginary Landscape was composed by John Cage in 1939, and it is the first time that people make music by some electronic devices like variable-peed phono turntables and frequency recordings. This song performed with a cymbal, a muted piano, two variable-speed phono turntables with amplifiers and a recording.

In the song, there are seven types of sounds which showed below, and, with these sounds, the song gets very dramatic. The loud sounds comes unexpectedly , the single frequency noises make the tone significant pure but harsh, and the discord melody played by the muted piano makes the atmosphere nervous.

Assumed Score


3:10 TO 3:22 (E A D A) By observing the equalization records and the sounds waves records, we can analyse a song or a sound in-depth. Equalization (EQ) represent a spectrum of sounds levels at different sounds frequency. On most of the spectrum, left side represents low pitch bass and right side represents high pitch noise. Beside, columns rise high stand for the sounds at its frequency get louder. Waves tell what amplitude moves by the sounds. On it, the closer a circle of waves is, the higher the pitch is. And when waves go higher and deeper, it means the sounds get louder. Furthermore, different waves distinguish different qualities of sounds.


Project 3 An Imaginary Landscape 34


Equalization slopes Equalization slopes exist in our everyday life. It usually appears at audio instrument boards. It change its shapes as time goes on, which is too rapid to observe. Now the relationship between each equalization spectra were showed and formed a imaginary landscape. These are equalization content left and right channels.

Textures The imaginary landscape came from the equalization and waves, which not only illustrate the instruments arrangement of the entire song but reveal some details in the sounds that we can not find out by listening. Like the texture on the plateau, it shows that the decay of a sounds is not declining smoothly but changes in different pitches. It reflect what John Cage used to say, there is no absolutely silent that we can hear, because noises from blood and body is always on. So, he thought the most interesting part of music is not the melody created by composer, but something happened by chances like the textures on the plateau.
