The fourth session of the Design and Color class for Winter 2017 was held on Wednesday, January 25. The new homework assignment is to explore opportunities for modular design using a geometric shape instead of a toothpick. Students shared more cardboard roll creations and modular toothpick designs, and Karen shared a clear and thorough presentation on understanding design programs.
The third session of the Design and Color class for Winter 2017 was held on Wednesday, January 18. The class shared more cardboard roll creations, producing several new objects that exploited and synthesized some of last week’s discoveries. Dick critiqued the toothpick designs, and we discussed in depth the concepts of a ‘module’ and how that turns into a ‘program’, and what exactly that means in terms of our design work. Remember, it all comes back to RELATIONSHIP. Please see the full post for class materials and photographs.
