The extrapolation of drawn line into a wire construction in space.
Assignment: Analysis of a natural form, including skin, structure, mass, numbering systems in organic growth. Exploration of skin and the explanation of a spherical form into a 2D plane.
Part 1: 2D
Through multiple contour line drawings, document the provided fruit from at least 3 sides. Sketch the fruit’s exterior and interior structures.
Part 2: 3D
Translate your contour line drawings into a wire sculpture. The new 3D form should be considerate of viewing angle and reinterpret the exterior and interior of the original fruit.
- Encourage conceptual thinking through process applied to spatial problem-solving
- Support the development of three-dimensional compositional skills through form making
- Develop skills of visual analysis based upon the exploration of a single natural form
- Instill the importance of drawing and making, as research and recording devices
- An understanding of the relationship between two-dimensional and three-dimensional form
- Understand contextual relevance of objects of forms and objects in the spaces they may occupy
- Continuously improve craft and technical drawing skills
- Understand the links between 2D images, 3D forms
- Demonstrate the ability to visualize a natural three-dimensional form through cross contour drawing and then to translate that drawing into a new 3D form using man-made materials
- Execute visual composition solutions that consider all visible vantage points
- Utilize visual analysis and hand-craft to construct and refine a 3D form
- Display an understanding of spatial composition
- Assimilation of critiquing skills
- Wire: you may use any of the following: 20g Copper, 18g Copper, 18g Steel, or colored aluminum
- Needle nose pliers
- Round nose pliers
- Side cutters
