The 2nd half of my 'Stellar Devices' design project. This was done for my final year of my Architecture BA @ the University of Brighton. This part focuses on the creation of precise devices developing on the earlier investigation into sextants and astronomy. The focus was on the the technology itself, the fundemental themes of curiosity and mystery. This led to the ultimate creation of an astronomer's workshop that acts as a sextant in itself.
The 1st half of my 'Stellar Devices' design project. This was done for the final year of my Architecture BA @ the University of Brighton. This part focuses on the investigation into devices - specifically astronomical devices and sextants. Their technical make-up, materiality, use, principle and theory behind the devices and the building of simple devices that are based on the earlier investigation.
Final term design project for my second year. Through investigation into themes of interest (stories, myth, cryptography) that related to our site of Alfriston - a small village in East Sussex in the UK - we had to develop a brief and a design for a project of national significance - creating the largest building in the village. My research led to the development of an idea for a library of mythical and rare items - books, manuscripts, maps, original film reels, forgotten technologies (Betamax, Laserdisc etc.) and of particular note, old pulp fiction and comic books. The project was designed to be an archive for this collection for decades if not centuries to come, while reflecting the themes investigated in the project - secrecy, myth, cryptography, speculative fiction, alternate histories and multiple explanations.
1 : 2 scale model of a table.
Brief was to design an object or fragment of space that had the qualities being investigated earlier on in the project - mine being codes, myths, stories and alternate histories. This table was designed to have multiple reasons or explanations for every facet of its design. A table made to drive a conspiracy theorist insane, if you will.
Some prints I've completed over the last month or so in anticipation of Olympic Basketball heading to my hometown of London - especially Team USA. Understandably, I was excited to see them play.
A2 Size Prints.
July - August 2012.
I decided in the beginning of the year to create 1 (at the minimum) wallpaper or poster for each month of the year. They'd each have a theme that was either obvious ( e.g. February in Paris) or just relevant to my experiences in that month. So basically anything I thought was appropriate.
