TRIVILLION WORKSHOP (ENVIRONMENT ELEMENTS AND CONTROL)

I worked on a module titled Environment Elements and Control. In particular, I worked on a project, Trivillion Workshop and spent many hours polishing up this project. The aim of the project was to study the natural environmental factors of Bedok Reservoir and using it as a backdrop, create and build a shelter for the neighbouring residents. I researched other similar projects that was related to my design to get inspiration and ideas but ultimately developing my own idea of what a sophisticated and user friendly shelter should be. In doing so, i have taken into consideration the light and wind factors of the environment. The idea eventually took shape in the form of my model and further running my shelter under light and wind simulations helped me envisage the end project clearer.

I am proud that my project was well received by my lecturers and was selected to be on permanent display in Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Design premises, Block 28A, Level 3.

ART PROJECTS (DESIGN FUNDAMENTALS)


CHILDHOOD STEPPING STONES THEME: MY MEMORIES

I have named this project “Childhood Stepping Stones” as it is especially close to my heart. I was asked to embark on on project with the theme “memories” and as befitting the past, I have used a impressionism and pointillism style. As an insight to the background, my childhood memories were always around music and dance. When was young, I took ballet, albeit for a very short time. The ballet shoes represent the time when I first started learning ballet when I was 7 and remembering myself dancing around the house. I gave up ballet at 9 years old and this has been a very difficult decision, one which I regret making the most. To some extent, I wanted to hold on to those memories. Yet to some extent, I wanted the memories to fade as this is reflected in my choice of work being painted in the lightest hue of grey, wishing it will disappear. The journey painted with piano keys represents how music and piano has always and will always be a part of my life. I have chosen this as the focus of the project to also show how blessed I am for the people who supported me and gave me the opportunity to grow my talents. Lastly the background is ‘dotted’ with different shades of grey tones representing little stones and about how these little things provided me a platform to express myself through different forms of Art.


MASK MAKING PROJECT

Masks are commonly used as a disguise and a means of portraying power and pride. Although is a stereotypical thought of what a mask could represent, I wish to push the limit of presumption to allow people to appreciate my project. The mask is designed around the theme of the African Tribal Masks. It shows the beauty and of an African woman and the traditional colours of an African tribe. The beauty of a woman is shown through the delicate features as represented on the mask. On the left (as seen by the viewer) and the beautiful jewels that she has adorned over herself. On the right (as seen by the viewer), it is represented through the strong masculine colours of a tribe and the crown that represents his authority and power of his tribe. Every man’s hearts is engraved to appreciate beauty. For a woman, her beauty are highlighted through her eyes and mouth. it is important for a women to watch the way she speaks in the way she portrays herself before others. Her eyes are the windows to her soul. Therefore, it is important for her to take careful considerations on how the people she meets and the signs and wonders of beauty that attracts her attention.


COLLAGE-‐MAKING PROJECT

Women today makes the majority of commercial and advert models. The world of the all too good self-deceptive nature of consummerism and preference for comfort and beauty - has thus led many women to ‘sell’ their bodies to appeal and entice to both genders alike. No duobt and needless to say, we are all guilty of enslavement to popular and pricey apparels; spending on products that could possibly boost our confidence and social qualities. The desires of our hearts which seeks to drive our passion oftentime overlooks what is most necessary. We set the definition of what befits the ‘pursuit of our happiness’ and the requirement of what satisfys these contentments of life.
