Golden Ratio

carbon allotropesI will pull out the elements I find in this painting and speak of their importance and how they will inform my design and space planning for the NEXT University Design sponsored by STEELCASE.

Parts and pieces will be taken out tomorrow. Wish the LASER CUTTER WAS UP AND RUNNING…It is hard to do this justice with hand cutting and the images could be traced, put in a Rhino File and uploaded to the Laser Cutter…if it were calibrated. I wonder if a test run is required…???

Felicia…

Then I would paint the pieces. We need our equipment operational. Please…

Wassilly Kandinsky

kandinsky-c8

Tempted I am…I love Kandinsky and this painting, Composition VIII, 1923. Tempted to take my concept ideation further and actually abandon my first concept which is (was) HIVE. The concept is overdone already in our small class so I may branch out into the world of Kandinsky and pull inspiration and organization for the NEXT University Design Competition from Wassilly Kandinsky’s painting, Compostion VIII. The harmony of the lines and the volume of the color speak to a few of the interests I have in expressing in my design concept for the university. The bright colors, the exactness of the forms and the arrangement all lead you to the conclusion that the randomness of the forms is actually connected and purposeful as the best ideas are.

Kandinsky had a habit of attending musical performances, capturing his impressions of the music as he heard the shapes, volumes and color in the pieces. This painting represents the interplay of form, color and line in an intellectual interpretation of music.

Boxes, DC Motors ….ZIMOUN

Watching these mechanical creations, I was surprised to see natural rhythms forming. The installation’s simplicity and repetition are mesmerizing which is confusing because it is only a box, a motor and a ball on the end of a wire. Sounds like rain. http://www.zimoun.net/
