Keeping you up to date with the all the latest work from students, staff, and graduates of the programme, and highlighting the best work & events for 3D Designers from around the world.
How are things made? How does a handle join to a cup or the bristles fit in a brush?
How do you visually describe the texture or colour of something? Or show how it is used?
Why do we need things anyway? Is function an object’s only purpose? Is cost the same as value? What can we understand about society through the objects we live with?
These and other questions were considered during a one day handling and drawing session (Unit 1 – Level 4) in order to develop a better understanding of the design and purpose of the objects that surround us.
Analysing and recording this information through drawing made us look and think, longer and harder. It also introduced and developed the many drawing conventions, methods and media that designers and makers use to communicate their thinking about objects and object making.
Here’s a very small selection of some of the best outcomes.
