Project I


What is kite and how does it strengthen to people? Well, kite is a wind driven machine in general, and its body is made of the framework and the outercovering to catch the wind. However kites can be used for recreation, art, power activities and military applications. The types and functions of kites become difference depend on the particular places.

Kites : A Connection between Earth and Heaven

Project 1

01


The Golden Moon Pavilion The geodestic dome echoes the spherical shae of the moon to give the message of reunion and gathering. It also references the legend of the Moon Goddess of Immoritality, whose love for her husband. The geometric sheets of fabrics give the aspect of texture and repetitive structure. It serves as an inviting public event space and a remarkable visual experience for festival.

The Opposite of All Those Things The sculpture based on geometric sturcture by collaborating with Kite related idea. Three-dimensional kite structure accomplishes the essence of the shape of rocks, but physically they are opposite: large, lightweight structures and designed to fly. But it gives the heavy looking feeling and trapping with the frames of kite. It broaches the issue of gravity and special perception at the same time.

Little Shining Man The sculpture based on the tetra kites of Alexander Graham Bell. Even though it perform as a heavy, un-flyable cubic mass, it is able to fly freely and steadily because of light weight materials and he symmetry of the module and composition. It has the repetative and special quality with layers.

The starting point to represent as the moon. (The demonstration of full and half moon.)

The triangular part of the kite breaks through the air. While it flies, the semi-circle part is going to hang from the upper part of the kite, and it achieces the aspect of the moon. The choice of materials makes the translucent quality to show the frame works of the kites.

Iteration 1 : The Hanging Moon

The iteration seems like there are two layers. It actually has 3 layers. Three layers are connected each other and it claims the continuity system. The transluent and transparent quality have been demonstrated at the same time. The waving pattern has geometrically connected and creates a layers. The tail part tries to develop the idea of the moon quality.

Demonstration of 3 layers; transparent, translucent and waving layers. The translucent layer casts the shadow of wavig pattern and ceeating the fascinating geometry shapes. The strings are geometrically connecting at the outer part of the kite in both side and in the inner side, they are connecting ramdomlly. It gives the different affectio for the iteration.

When it comes to my fourth iteration, I takes the good points from my previous iterations and I construct my kite for final review. It has the curvilinear shape to maintain the moon shape. It also has the spacial quality that provoke the interlocking space. The upper part of the kite keeps the eyes to go through the line and ends up in the middle two layers by signifying the connectivity quality.

06


It attains the same shape as the fourth iteration (review) model. It has the hierachy composition and the waving system is more geometric copared to my review model. Most of the gap sapces are covered with the tracing paper and plastiv to create the specific spatial quality. It comes with the fascinating waving system to create waving pattern layers of the kite. The back part of the waving pattern system keeps the parabola shape and makes the connection between the front and back part of the moon (curvilinear shape).

- The inspiration comes from the Golden Moon Pavilion. - There are two shapes of moon in the first study model.

- Decided to change the shape of the moon and found the moon inspiration building. - The roof maintains the shape of the moon. - Got the idea to make the shape of the moon.

- I changed my moon concept and I went to the path of stars in the universe. - The weaving patterns point out the connections of the stars.

- I got an idea of combining both stars and the moon together.

Being a human, we all face the difficult situations in our life. It shows that life is not simple, but dynamic. When we face such kinds of dynamic situation, we need to find our right path of life to pursue our goal. It might be easy to find the right way in the day time because we can see clearly everything in our destination. Bur how would we do at night when we cannot see clearly everything. At that time we have to make the connection with our nature, the moon and the stars. We can regard these as the light house that shows our way at night time. When we lost at night, we can find the polar star and know directly where the north is. By this way we can get the right path to go forward. However knowing the location of the stars is not enough to find the way, we also need the light to brighten-up our track. Therefore the moon and the stars come up together to lighten up our route when we lost. Since the kite is also the connection between earth, people and universe, I follow the inspiration of the moon and the stars. My kite accomplish the idea of leading the right way like the moon and the stars.
