Thick Skins,Deep Cavities,Surface-to-Volume Transformations

Studio: Tom Wiscombe, 2011 Fall
Instructor:Tom Wiscombe

Building on previous research on surface-to-strand morphologies, this studio will focus on surface-to-volume morphologies. The intent will be to explore extreme fluctuations between two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality, producing the effect of appearance and disappearance of volume and depth across architectural surfaces. Surface, like skins of organisms and certain geological formations, will be understood as always having complex poché space rather than zero depth; surface thickness will vary wildly, both in response to figural as well as various instrumental criteria. Cavities, apertures, and transparencies will be used as ways of increasing depth effects. Sectional qualities will be revealed which will force consideration of deep cavities, interiority, and the unfurling of space.
