This is one of my other favourites. Part of what I was trying to accomplish through this series was the expression of the sublime. I was trying to demonstrate the ultimate magnitude of Kant’s sublime. In this drawing I am attempting to describe that this characteristic is found both internally (within the starship, akin to Piranesi’s Carceri series) and externally (beyond the mathematical expression of sublime; the supposed infinite).
This is the first excerpt from my final design submission that I will be posting on this website. Over the next few weeks I will be posting a selection of postcards from my 100YSS book, and will on occasion provide some additional information that may or may not be either relevant or enlightening.
This drawing was the only ‘real’ architectural drawing in my final submission. A plan, section, elevation drawing that hints at an unknown trajectory. To be honest I am not sure if I had scale in mind. Any scale would be irrelevant anyway. I felt as though I had to include it in case I was accused of pure illustration. As it turns out it is one of my favourite drawings from this project. It is the essence of my entire project. Some sort of autonomous ambiguity.
This animation was submitted as part of my final design folio. It was hastily put together on the morning of submission using a combination of hand drawings and After Effects with a smidgen of help from Photoshop. You will have to use your ears to try and guess from where the sound was borrowed.
The animation was produced with its display in mind. During the presentation of the project it was projected over a wall, with the intention that it would compliment the other components of the exhibition.
