For the wings/skeleton, I used a rope to measure the two arces as they are not on a spercific circle. Then I measured the length of the two ropes.

102.5 SCALE 1:1@A4 The object I chose to study is Pendant lamp from Ikea, as the volume and form of the lamp, I spinned it off by its conponents. I linked the endpoints on the two arcs, then found the middle points and drew the perpendicular line getting the intersection with the arcs. Then measuring the distance from intersection points to middle point seperately and calculating the radius of the circles these two arcs belonging to.

pedals, I used two rulers, letting them be perpendicular to each other, then measuring the distence

Supporting structure

BEND ROTATE

The pedals are slotted into the wings/skeletons, so they are bended , from flat to three dementional, and due to the position of the joints on the skeletons, it canbe seen as This can be seen as a basic group pf components in the system. It rotates horizontally seven times, it becomes the lamp.

Sketch Design #1 Blocking eye contact

What is your idea? [Maximum 5 key words]

How does this respond to your personal space? In some situation, like in a crowded space/ volid space, for example in a crowded tram/ in an elevator. I feel the spatial investion happens mostly while eye contacting with the people standing close to me. This garment is designed to block the eye contacting with strangers. The sketch model of interlocking three units inspired me, the garment is rotating along the neck of the person.

Sketch Design #2 Keep distance walking alone

What is your idea? [Maximum 5 key words]

How does this respond to your personal space? While I am walking alone, espectially in the quiet street during night, I pay more attention to my back rather than my front. This garment emphases the back space, I use the fourunit module and the skeletons from the lamp as inspiration, connecting the two layers together.

Sketch Design #3 Helmet, transparency

What is your idea? [Maximum 5 key words]

This helmet is specific for some public space. Sometimes I feel nervous when there are people in suroundings, like library or cafe, so I design this helmet. The back and the sides near ears could be solid and the front could be transparent materials.

How does this respond to your personal space?
