Inventory Exhibition at Crown Hall, Illinois Institute of Technology
Total : 30 forms
MDF, stucco, matte finish acrylic paint
By choosing particular natural bodies of water and study the idea of size and complexity of the geometrical dimensionality of the form, it inspired the systematic language of proportion and ratios that where schemed by this non traditional shapes. Following concept, it generated the design of a non-traditional spa and living typology that incorporated this forms.
Inventory of Typology - Marble Collage on Cottage
Instructors : Mauricio Pezo & Sofia Von Ellrichshausen
A study of both a survey of traditional domestic architecture and a critical reconstruction of selected cases into sculptural objects. Recollection of inventory to transform a unique case into a monolithic construction cladded in stone. The scuptural object is in the limit between nostalgia and futurism on what it becomes the subject matter on undertanding the familiar heritage, the commonplace and the artlessness of the non-pedigree architecture.
The “Cottage” is the subject matter for this research, a one story house, with a porche, generous windows and a low pitched roof with overhang. The distinct particularities of the sculpture enquirers the explore notion of character, personality, individuality and the ornamental within the more or less regulated and standardized structure of a small-scale urban archetype without distorting the pureness of the object.
Research on one single possible alteration was explore to raise inevitable questions about the connotations of power, status and, ultimately, the very function of the surfaces finishing the architectonic space.
Marble Sculpture as an Architecture
The sculpture acts as a pictorial and sculptural framework in it’s own right. An icon created through its materiality appeals to a higher level of respect and institution. The marble, as a social object, represents power and elegance. The architecture itself does not matter, only the finish of the body.
Inventory of Sculptural Forms - Cylinder
Instructor : Catherine Wetzel
Total : 25 forms
concrete, plaster, cardboard, rock, natural
A production of cohesive bodies of work that illustrates a single pure form in distinct comprehensive manners. By the study of relationship between ideas, form and physical model making, experimentations with materially was investigated to comprehend the volume, ratio, weight and color to create a pure cylinder.
The concept of pure form resides in the abstract and in their ideal state that forms are perfect. However, pureness is not always perfection. Materiality and the building methods to create a single form became critical properties that defy perfection and enforce a set of priorities and decisions. This questions the definition of a cylinder and the experience that it demonstrates as the shape evolves in a series of repetition and variation.
The form is manipulated by a series of parameters to mold itself to a define shape. As an abstraction of an eternal repetitive field, the cylindrical shape is taken apart and analyzed carefully to make the details outshine and defy the most basic geometric form.
Inventory of Sculptural Children Chairs
Instructor : John Kriegshauser
Total : 3 chairs
An independent research of the relationship between a chair and a child. The construction of tree child size stools where created as a result of an extensive design and build experimentation of stack lamination. The chairs are less utilitarian and more suited to domestic youth settings.
The chairs illustrated a play between color, wood grain, wood softness, lightness of the material and three-dimensionality of the shapes to make pieces not only be sitting objects, but also individual sculptures. The study questions the definition between a sitting object and a prop of work. Each chair contains intriguing individualistic physical aspects and do not correlate to one another. However, each chair can be used for one single action but it can also inherit several definitions depending on its practicality.
Mass as a Framework
Stools were created as research on proportion, dimensionality and comfortability for a young child. Simple furniture is the literal translation of practical. It only has one verticality but it can have several actions.
