In studio, we received a prompt that called us to build a 3-dimensional model that explored intersection using planar and linear elements. My original model is built using chip board and wooden dowels, which has a pierce relationship to the planar surface of chipboard.
When it came to revisions, we were also informed there had to be both a wooden and metal component to the construct. When coming up with my idea, I decided to stray away from the safety of creating a rectilinear structure, and instead, chose to build a more complicated curvilinear structure. Over all, I am happy with the end result of my design. However, I had some construction issues, like spot welds holding and difficulties finding dowel joint conditions. These problems have given me a new perspective on how to build models when using these materials, along with what works and what won’t.
