SPACE CONTAINER

Spring 2014

Assignment: Choose one piece from the tool pattern and transform the piece to create a 3D object that contains "space". There is no glue allowed.

Approach: The chalkline I chose is very rigid in form, so I wanted to choose a piece that identified that characteristic. The piece I chose initially caught my eye because of the sharp edges. My goal for this space container was to transform the sharp, 2D piece into an organic 3D form. This posed quite a challenge. I wanted to create a unique space. There is a clear passage through the "body" of the container which is protected by two wings which elegantly create a point of "opening". Though complex in form, this space container was created from three flat systematic connections - two wings, and a symmetrical connection of the long ends of the piece (pictured in the gallery above). The application of these steps and concepts ultimately created the form shown above.
