one hundred equals one

This was a response to the challenge of creating a single composition out of over one hundred every-day items. Every envelope was strung through a wire in order to give the newly created object flexibility.

The Collision of Concepts

This project was an investigation of two separate concepts interacting with eachother; either resulting in a harmonious composition or and expression of the battle between the two forces. The two ideas, slices of light and a catalytic mass, begin from opposing sides and the collision is expressed in the center panel. Rather than forcing the two concepts together to make a beautiful new idea, the beauty was found in the contradiction.

Matrix It all began with a simple bright green twist-tie. Iteration after iteration, the twist-tie was able to morph into endless other shapes. A very flexible object was able to become many different kinds of orthagonal shapes; all of which still somewhat expressing the flexibilty inherent in the original object.

Exemplary House Documentation Through extensive research, accurate drawings of Philip Johnson’s Glass House were able to be produced. After the drawings were completed, an abstract positive and negative space models of the house was created. This model explores the horizontality of the Glass House with the main vertical force (the brick chimney) interrupting the simple box.

Price Hill Library Analysis After researching many different Andrew Carnegie libraries in the city of Cincinnati, this project was an up-close discovery of the Price Hill Branch. Thorough site and community research were needed in order to accurately represent the library in its context.

unit This project was a product of four weeks of work and 10 group members. The goal was to create a single unit that could form with 39 other units to create multiple forms of space. This single unit was made out of four layers of poplar hardwood. The layers were able to slip into eachother, locking into place and allowing for seemingly endless forms and configurations.

fifty fifty

This 12x12x12 cube is made up of fifty-percent maple hardwood and fifty-percent birch hardwood. The maple acts as a bone structure with the birch encasing the bone like a separate skin.


light

This 12x12x12 cube made of museum board is a very abstract interpretation of the hallway in the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. While walking through this particular hallway, one experiences the forceful slices of light entering the space through the skylights above.
