Origami Origami Architecture is the combina2on of two ancient Japanese art forms: Origami – the art of folding paper, and Kirigami – the art of cu>ng paper. The result is a single sheet of cut and folded paper that when opened displays a three-‐dimensional image.

Ar2st; Robert Sabuda
Robert Sabuda is a leading children's pop-‐up-‐book ar2st and paper engineer. He was skilled as an ar2st from a very young age, and aOended the PraO Ins2tute in New York City. His speciﬁc interest in 3-‐ D paper engineering (i.e., pop-‐up books).
Architectural Pop Up Art
Peter Callesen He creates intricate paper cut artwork from A4 paper and in large-‐scale installa2ons. Each work is created from one sheet of paper, be it three-‐dimensional ﬂowers falling from a bouquet's nega2ve, a hummingbird ﬂying from the page, or a child-‐size castle cra\ed from a billboard-‐sized paper. He uses paper because he says it is "probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying informa2on today," but we "rarely no2ce the actual materiality" of it. There is a tragic quality to most of his subjects, whether it's a ﬂower dying, an angel locked in a birdcage, or even an apple reduced to its core. So the frail and delicate paper medium underlines that element of calamity.
Evalua2on My idea behind this project was taking ﬂat images and turn them into 3dimen2onal to make it look more realis2c, my ﬁnal outcome was form in pictures, I was pleased with the ﬁnal outcome but I would have liked to edit and produce more work. For my ﬁnal models I have taken pictures of buildings from books and cut them out and tried to pop them out from the ﬂat image to make it look more 3Dimen2onal just like the ar2st I have looked at.

Fionna banners work is prominent because of the colors an d the focal points of her work is the typography. Typography is the main concept of her work. Her Ideas of work is with words , books, paper and pages, arranging them together , for example on her ﬁrst work , she used a large scale of paper with words and shredded it and hang it from the ceiling and gives us the ideas of a curtain or a door way path. This piece of work of hers is prominent because of the bright red color. This work of hers inspired me to try work with diﬀerent materials of papers and shredded it and try to reproduce something similar to her work . Her work took the form of solid single blocks of text, o\en the same shape and size as a cinema screen On the second picture I believe she used wood and cut out the words into the wood to make it into 3D form and arranging them together , this work of her really inspired me to use the lase cuOer to cut out wood or other thick materials to produce a 3D form objects with diﬀerent words. The main subject maOers are her typography, orientated around an empty room on the ﬂoor. I will gather inspira2on from Fiona banner’s work to produce similar outcomes and experiment with diﬀerent techniques similarly to her work.
Lawrence Weiner Title; Quid Pro Quo. Date; 2008
Lawrence Weiner early work included experiments with systema2c approaches to shaped canvases and later, featured squares cut out of carpe2ng or walls. The wall installa2ons that have been a primary medium for Weiner since the 1970s consist solely of words in a nondescript leOering painted on walls. The leOering need not be done by the Weiner himself, as long as the sign painter complies with the instruc2ons dictated by the ar2st Lawrence Weiner’s work is mostly displayed on a large scale of surface (background) with mostly with sentence’s or with words that concentrates all around the surface he displayed in , to make the person look around and discover his work and also he uses just a liOle bit of color, his work inspires me to try and spray paint a surface with sentence's or words. On the second pictures he uses the same methods as the ﬁrst one but on the second one is mainly focused into the color (a bright green) to aOract us to look into it , this also is really inspiring because I could used a dull background and use a hint of color to make it look more prominent. I believe Lawrence Weiner work is really aﬀec2ve because he layers around typography around empty spaces or walls, this will me my main inspira2on for my work to be produced, I will be developing and using similar techniques as Lawrence.
Fiona Banner. Banner’s work includes sculpture, drawing and installa2on; text is the core of her oeuvre. She has also treated the idea of the classic, art-‐historical nude, observing a life model and transcribing the pose and form in a similar vein to her earlier transcrip2on of ﬁlms. On 1 October 2010, in an open leOer to the Bri2sh Government's culture secretary Jeremy Hunt. Banner opposed any future cuts in public funding for the arts. In the leOer the cosignatories described the arts in Britain as a "remarkable and fer2le landscape of culture and crea2vity.
Lawrence Weiner. “I try to make work that nobody can use if they are not willing to accept a change in whatever logic structure they are stuck in,” explains Lawrence Weiner. It is the day before the opening of his solo exhibi2on BE THAT AS IT MAY at the Lisson Gallery, and accompanied with a glass of whisky, he begins to unravel a ﬁve decade career in which he has deconstructed ar2s2c prac2ces and expanded the accepted no2ons of the art object. As the 2tle of his new show suggests, Weiner proposes “are we going to accept this as art?” Something that has con2nued to fuel his fascina2on with materialism and breaking down the structure of things. THIS AS THAT (BE THAT AS IT MAY) is printed on the window of the gallery, projected inwards and outwards, allowing it to be viewed simultaneously without occupying the room itself. It becomes a material fact, less to do with the way the text is presented and more to do with its rela2on to space.
Fiona Banner & Lawrence Weiner Fiona banners work is really 3D dimensional comparing to Lawrence Weiner’s work which is 2D form and more wriOen. In my opinion I think Fiona Banners work is really aOrac2ve because she picks words and turn them into 3D forms or a model , in the other hand Lawrence Weiner uses texts and prints them directly on a large surface such as boards, walls and windows .
Lawrence Weiner Fiona Banner
My word “Language” The word I have chosen is Language , and I will be looking at diﬀerent languages to construct something similar to Fiona Banners work and Lawrence Weiner . I'm mainly going to be looking at swear words and working on that to produce a 3D form or a 2D form object and I am also going to be transla2ng the swear words in a diﬀerent language which it will be my ﬁrst language Italian.
I started my research with language by looking at the words and sentences around me and recording them as a primary research.
Typography & Font
Font nowadays is frequently used synonymously with the term "typeface", although before the advent of digital typography and desktop publishing, "font" referred to a single size and "typeface" referred to a set of otherwise iden2cal fonts of diﬀerent sizes. Beginning in the 1980s, with the introduc2on of computer fonts, a broader deﬁni2on for the term "font" evolved. Diﬀerent sizes of a single style—separate fonts in metal type—are now generated from a single computer font, because vector shapes can be scaled freely. "Bulmer", the typeface, may include the fonts "Bulmer roman", "Bulmer italic", "Bulmer bold" and "Bulmer extended", but there is no separate font for "9-‐point Bulmer italic" as opposed to "10-‐point Bulmer italic”.
Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible. The arrangement of type involves the selec2on of typefaces, point size, line length, leading (line spacing), adjus2ng the spaces between groups of leOers (tracking) and adjus2ng the space between pairs of leOers (kerning). Type design is a closely related cra\, which some consider dis2nct and others a part of typography; most typographers do not design typefaces, and some type designers do not consider themselves typographers. In modern 2mes, typography has been put into mo2on—in ﬁlm, television and online broadcasts—to add emo2on to mass communica2on. Typography is performed by typeseOers, compositors, typographers, graphic designers, art directors, comic book ar2sts, graﬃ2 ar2sts, clerical workers, and anyone else who arranges type for a product. Un2l the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupa2on. Digi2za2on opened up typography to new genera2ons of visual designers and lay users, and David Jury states that "typography is now something everybody does."

Evalua2on • •
I have used the laser cu=er to cut out the words from a MDF material which is similar to wood and I have used the material to have the similar aﬀect as the arCst I have chosen has used the wood material for his/her outcomes . I have also tried to use spray paint to spray oﬀ the material to form the words on paper.
Experiment idea 1
This is my ﬁrst idea. I have tried to develop my work by arranging the words in the library. The idea behind me pu>ng the words cam fro the cri2c we had in lesson , my peers and teacher gave me ideas to place the words on a library or a church or mosque to represent the in appropriate language used my teenagers. I have chose to place the words in a library to show that your not allowed to swear In a library, to show respect to the people that are trying to enjoy the quite 2me by studying or reading a book.
Lisa Rienermann Lisa Rienermann’s work is where photography and typography intersect. For her project, Type the Sky, she didn’t take photos of leOers, but rather she looked up and captured the leOers formed by the spaces between buildings. She used shots of some very close city streets to produce her outcomes . I will be using the same idea as Lisa but I will be placing my words trough windows or in natural spaces for the background aﬀect, then I will develop the idea further more with mono-‐prin2ng.
I experimented couple of words/ LeOers trough PowerPoint as we can see the result is really 2Demen2onal but my inten2ons are to make it look 3 dimensional which it will look more realis2c, I will be obtaining that by taking actual pictures outside without using any graphical or PowerPoint edited.
Experimen2ng Idea 2 This are my experimen2ng ideas that I developed by looking at Lisa Rienermann’s work. I tried to produce something similar to her work , by pu>ng diﬀerent backgrounds behind the words. I have put the words against the windows or just holding them while taking the pictures.
Experimen2ng Ideas 3 This is my experimen2ng Idea 3. During a lesson 2me we are expected to have a appropriate language to talk to each other but at some point people forget that and uses the inappropriate language by the student while working or just having fun.
Experimen2ng Ideas 4
My 4th idea it was placing the words in public transport place , to show that your are not allowed to swear in a public place but most of the people s2ll do it with out realizing it.
Jenny Holzer -‐ Ar2st Analyst Jenny Holzer is a very public ar2st, mostly known for her large scale pubic displays that include billboard adver2sements, projec2on on buildings and other architecture structures. The main focus of her work is typography (use of words) and the idea of using the public space to produce her outcomes. Holzer moved to New York City, and abruptly turned away from tradi2onal pain2ng to focus on the far more intricate substance of language, her loaded use of moOoes, phrases, verses, and quota2ons have appeared on T-‐shirts and posters, marble benches, and condom wrappers, have been light-‐projected onto the facades of government, corporate, and community buildings around the globe, and perhaps most memorably, have crawled and blinked across red-‐light LED screens. The focal point of her work are the quotes she projects into her subject maOers(public space) that juxtaposes. The tone and shades that Jenny Holzer uses are quite muted, she mainly uses the tone black and white and I have observed her work that are mainly projected during night 2me so the projec2on would be clear to see. He work interested me a lot because of the way she uses typography text into other subject maOers to give out messages or just for pleasure. I feel that her visual piece of work is more than simply just combining typography and public space, she tries to put messages out there to the public by using the public spaces a a piece of her art work (space). Jenny Holzer work inspires me to composi2on of my typography photographs to combine them with other subject maOers, For example I will be projec2ng my own pictures into other peoples work to connect with my work. Jenny Holzer’s work is innova2ve and powerful. She is able to make social statements using her art in public places where the impact is the greatest. This piece of work of Jenny’s inspired me a lot to project my typography work into other peoples portraits, just like how Jenny projects quotes into public spaces.

Jenny Holzer’s Work.
Jenny Holzer’s Work.
EvaluaCon of ﬁrst experiments . I have taken some pictures of my experimental for my projec2on work inspirited by Jenny Holzer’s. What I have done for this experimental work is I have projected my typography into my self and I have also placed the physical word on my self coming out the pocket to show the physical word with the projec2on. I have also experimented with shadows to work together with the typography, I have tried to work with the shadow to give an illusion of the person shou2ng or holding the typography. I will be developing my ideas further more by projec2ng the words into other subject maOers to give a similar aﬀect as Jenny Holzer’s work.
Bruce Nauman / mindfuck Bruce Nauman is a contemporary America ar2st. His prac2ce spans a broad range of media including sculpture, photography, neon, video, drawing, printmaking, and performance. Stopped pain2ng in 1965 and began to make objects, performance pieces and ﬁlms. First one-‐man exhibi2on, of ﬁberglass sculptures, at the Nicholas Wilder Gallery, Los Angeles, 1966. Moved in 1966 to San Francisco. Made sculptures based on the backs of objects or moulded from parts of his own body; also works concerned with the no2on of hiddenness or inaccessibility, and neon pieces with words. Bruce Nauman’s work is controversial comparing to my other ar2st I have researched, his work is diverse comparing to other ar2st because his work has an edge and inappropriate sexuality art, parts of body. I believe his subject maOers are mainly concerned with body parts and this will help me develop images similar to his work but not reviling too much body parts. I will be experimen2ng similar ways and than I will be either projec2ng it or Photoshop the swear words on top of the explicit pictures to conceal private parts.
I have developed my experimental photographs further more by projec2ng my typography into other subject maOers. I have tried to project the typography into portraits and other languages because Jenny Holzer’s she didn’t only project typography into buildings but only on portraits so tried to produce a similar outcome by projec2ng my typography into other peoples subject maOers and I have also posi2oned projector in a such a way to represent that the words are coming out from the subject maOers mouth. I have also posi2oned the projector with the words on top of elderly peoples portrait to show that is not appropriate to swear or use such words in front of them and we should respect them. Overall on my further developments I have done is a mixture of diﬀerent technique's such as photography projec2ng and pu>ng together diﬀerent subject maOers together with my own work , I believe all my development works has worked really well with diﬀerent subject maOers.
Ideas && Concepts in Art & Design The ideas I am exploring in my project is typography I speciﬁcally looked at swear words and how it is been used in our every day life normally with out any problem, I improved my ideas by taking advices from my last cri2c an did something diﬀerent by placing the 3D text sculpture's and photographs in a restaurant table to show and represent that how easy is for people to swear in a dinner or lunch table and is an everyday life thing for them to swear with out thinking if the place is appropriate or not. I have placed the 3D sculptors in diﬀerent places ways for example I have placed the word ‘bitch’ coming out a glass which I tried to represent that a\er someone drinks alcohol diﬀerent and nonsense words comes out from there mouth due to their drinking and swearing is the most common thing to come out. I have also used the photographs for my exhibi2on work by represen2ng them as table mat and placing them on the table. I was pleased with the outcome of my ﬁnal work because what my aim was when people will walk past too look at my work would have to stop and think what is going on in the table and ﬁgure out what I tried to produce and why is there so many swear words going on in one table. In the Outback Exhibi2on we had a group cura2ng workshop to do, we had to present the work, how it should be presented the products or the art for example we had to place the models in diﬀerent areas and how it will work for the space , also such as the ligh2ng , how the ligh2ng will eﬀect the model ( piece of art ), we all had to thing about how many people will be aOending the exhibi2on, or the space how big the model will be if it will ﬁt into the space. The audience that came for the exhibi2ons where friend’s family, teachers and public people because it was presents in a public place and it was open for everyone. Taking part in a art exhibi2on was really a new experience for me because I got to work with complete strangers and also working in a team with new people was a diﬀerent experience, in the future if I have any more art exhibi2ons I will be considering about the 2me, because 2ming is a really important thing for the work. Having just discuss my ideas with my teacher and some of my peers and I have thought a possible ways to develop my ideas in a further way. As the concept I am exploring is looking at inappropriate language and how it is used openly by young people I plan to explore some ideas such as ; taking picture’s of a young person playing on his ps3 or computer and prin2ng the pictures out and projec2ng the swear words on the picture, another ideas was taking pictures in a public transport place with the swearing words.
