Pattern in Nature

As Kandinsky mentioned, an analytical drawing is constructed by three stages. In stage one, we simplify a complicated object into a simple drawing, often the most important or the structure of the object. Using similar concept, i constructed a pattern from my object with dots and line, which i believe is the most recognizable feature in the object.

1. Draw dots on the intersection point made by 3 corns. 2. Connect the points with a straight line. 3. Repeat.

Balance

Second stage of analytical approach advanced by Kandinsky require careful inspection to the object. We have to identify minor details and tenions within the object, hence develop on the structure of the object. After realising the curves being an essential feature, i smoothen the lines and the corners, generating a wave form.

1. Draw dots on the intersection point made by 3 corns. 2. Connect the dots with curve lines. 3. The outcome should be something similar to a sin-graph.

Movement

Third stage of analytical approach advanced by Kandinsky require further abstraction to the drawing, causing the drawing to be as simply as possible. To approach the final stage of analytical drawing, i changed the sizes of the wave in to one size. Similar to a sin- graph.

1. Draw a straight horizontal line. 2. Draw a perpendicular line that runs through the middle of the horizontal line. 3. Draw a sin- graph.

Symmetry

1. Draw a quadrant. 2. Draw a smaller quadrant within the first quadrant drawn. 3. Cut out the smaller quadrant. 4. Stick one end to the other with glue or double sided tape.

Model Formation

First Model My first model is a 3D verison of my analytical drawing of movement, a 3D sin-graph with difference scales on each of the object used in the model. With the company of simply repetition and rotation, i created my first model.

Sceond Model I constructed my second model with similar concept used in my first model, along with the structure of my chosen object, the corn. This time, i emphasise the size differences and the rotation effect. However, the model became very vulnerable and break down very easily even with glue and double sided tapes. Therefore i used paper on both sides to strengthen and support my model.

Paper Model

This is a rhino model i constructed with similar concept. Since creating a model is way more convenient and easy in rhino in comparison to paper work, i am manage to added in new ideas and feature that is almost impossible to creat with paper and glue.
