The first 3-dimensional exploration of the semester was depth. Depth in definition is the distance from the top or surface of something to its bottom. The objective of this assignment is to be able to create depth through the use of Bristol paper, without the need of tape nor glue. From our 2-dimensional compositions of depth, we recreated these compositions into 3-dimensional constructs. Throughout the iterations, one prominent complication i had to go through was clarity. As the iterations progress, I try to improve my precision and simplicity, especially in the last iteration.

2-Dimensional Compositions

First construct



In the first construct, I tried to tackle the challenge of creating depth by using square modules that consistently enlarges in size as it goes down/up. This construct more than likely showed shadows than depth, due to the gaps in between the square modules. I also became aware of the dark pencil guidelines that distracted the viewer from the overall form.

Second Iteration

In the second iteration, I made the form of my first iteration to be more solid, in order to create the different kinds of shades that would show depth. Each form is created with one piece of paper. This method required a great amount of precision and patience, two values that I am practicing thoroughly in design. Although there were still some parts that were inaccurate, i learned how to fold in geometric shapes by only using one paper.

Third iteration

From using the things I learned in the first and second attempts, created the third iteration with much more bliss. The connections seem much more seamless, unlike in the second iteration. I also connected the two structures in order to create one structure that would show different shades in different angles, thus, creating a different depth.
