Through the class I have been interested in how light can bounce and wash over a surface. As I want my luminaire to depict this property I hope through exploration to discover what materials, shapes, and color will best produce this in a simplistic way. As I have been working with pattered panels thus […] Continue reading
For our final version of Project 3, Adria and I decided on two different versions of our space. The first experiment had three different color groups, one for each time of day (morning, noon, evening). Colors were arranged into groups … Continue reading → Continue reading
In studio I am currently looking at the structure of the lobby and how light changes the space throughout the day. The short clip allowed me to really see how the light moves through the space during the day.
This GIF animation was made in Photoshop (a first for me). The model is also set up to test bounced color at the entry (far end). I’ve had some trouble casting hard shadows with organic shapes (landscaping). I think I … Continue reading → Continue reading
This is a solar study of a test model in Revit. Some highlights from my explorations last week. The daylighting solar study gave me the opportunity to refresh on Revit’s tools and settings and also to wrestle with Mac/PC exporting … Continue reading → Continue reading
Here are 3 of my best pics from the “Bounced Color” exercise. My iPhone had difficulty picking up the color that bouncing onto the walls and floor. I used a sheet of frosted acrylic as a diffuser to help with … Continue reading → Continue reading
This is a draft video for the project on changing light. Adria and I are working together for this video and are combining two of our projects together. My patterned openings from my last two projects are being overlaid with … Continue reading → Continue reading
The light box from the last project was reused for this experiment. First, I laser cut patterns into both blue and red matteboard. Then, I used these screens along with color floor pieces to reflect color onto the back wall of … Continue reading → Continue reading
This short video clip shows how light could change throughout the day using one of my panels I created in the first week of class.
When experimenting with color I wanted to use my initial interest in how color could bounce and wash a surface. As I felt my curvilinear panel was the most successful from last weeks experiment, I glued sections of orange, blue, and green construction paper to the back of each strip. Although it is hard to […] Continue reading
