One Room Paradise
“ the hard bit is, how not to compromise… how can we be clear about this, no compromises, please don’t tell me it cant be done. ” Anish Kapoor
Students are to present 5 artefacts representative of paradise based on their initial research then re-examine, and reimagine and translate these objects in various 3d, spatial and material examinations.
This project extends the learning of enquiry and representation into a process of ideas translated from 2d to 3d, using both spatial and material investigations. Using objects from the student’s own research enquiry, this project engages in the creative possibilities of the design process as a way of considering material expressions and 3d form making for interior spaces. The emphasis of this project is on expansive research through thinking and making.
The one room paradise is both a process and a product.
Students will be working on:
• Research into ideas of paradise as it concerns their own backgrounds and lifestyle choices,
• Research into theoretical notions of the possibilities of the interior space • evolving ideas in the form of an increasing collection of individual 3d, spatial and material investigations,
• investigation of interior spaces in relation to notions of fantastical environments • drawings and models, each considering notions of paradise and its representations.
Each week the tutors will challenge you to reframe and represent these elements from your life and research to extend and evolve your exploration processes.
Product. The result will be a collection of forms that are representative of the idea of paradise in material 3d and the process of experimentation, reframing and representation. The final outcome and assessment will be based on the collection and editing of the best process work.
