Construct I - view 3 by LocusMote Construct I - view 3 by LocusMote
Construct I. 2005.
100 Hand-cut Museum Board pieces, Glue.
4 x 6 x 9 in.


The spatial transformation project was the first work we were given at The University of Michigan's School of Architecture and Urban Planning. The idea was to introduce us to the ideas of making and conceptual ideation through physical modeling.

The assignment was to assemble 100 layers of museum board cut to 4 x 9 inches to create a block 6 inches deep. We were told to cut away at each piece of museum board in order to create voids which engaged space in an "architectural way."

This one week assignment became the jumping-off point for a second phase of the project which we only later found out about.

The 100 handcut pieces of board in Construct I - view 3 by ~LocusMote gives this architectural model a strong feel of nature - I see cliff or maybe ice formations, what do you see in this spatial transformation? ( Featured by Myana )

Help me to find Mr. Jasper Schuringa and send him this message that I am intended to buy one of his used underpants at the price of 1000$ and complete my installation art.

Sounds a bit like what I did in the first semester in my school of architecture and urban planning.... I've just started this year at the Technion, Israel ^_^ Our assignment was "Manipulation On A Cube"...
And that became our jumping point for a new assignment, that was revealed to us afterwords....

i've been wondering, how do you cut so perpendicularly? Is there a special tool like those miter corner knives? or do you use some laser cutting machine?

im going to fav this now, cause this is what my architecture teacher told us to do, except with chipboard.

When I first saw this I thought it was some kind of wood block that was sculpted to look like that. Then I read the description and was even more impressed that it was museum board!

this is very cool. Just a suggestion (unrelated to the piece itself): when you photograph models, you should close the aperture of the camera, so that it's all in focus.
