Deconstructed Spaceships

Media and Modeling Seminar

Spring 2015

Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA

This visual study seminar will be developed on the representation and articulation of detailed surfaces towards the design of futuristic spaceships. The 2D and 3D surface formations will consist of an assemblage of monochrome colors as a method to measure geometrical and aesthetical values. We will mainly work with non-standard surface geometries that will be extracted through decomposed conceptual images of vehicles, such as concept cars, motorcycles, planes and ships...etc. Surfaces have the potential to emerge into new multi-performative systems which can reflect into spatial conditions as well as aesthetic compositions. Using the marriage of digital modeling / image production techniques and experimental design we will explore new ways of producing tectonic geometry and representing it in conceptual environments.
