Superimpose – II

As I mentioned in my previous posts, this time we were assigned to make a 3D construct of a superimosed image as well. Whereas, in this instance, that superimposed images were not ours. We picked randomly one of our firends images. Then again, we tried to apply same steps as previous superimpose excercise. Distinctly, this time I paid particular attention to the relations between elements and achieved that by again using tracing paper. Here is my work below.

Abstraction of Superimposed Images


This time, we took our previous two model’s pictures on acetate sheets. And we were assigned to superimpose them. First of all, I did a little research about superimpose on the internet and found out that superimpose means lay or place something over something else in certain angle and certian position. So, I started trying every positions of two sheets and then I decided on that position. And then I started sketching it with the tracing paper. I did same step 3 times by aking it less detailed and by just using horizontal and vertical lines. So that, I could realize relations more clearly. Here is my sketches below.


One Step Further on Abstracting

For the second time of abstarcting, our instructors gave us 5 images to be select one of them. This time I focused on spatial relations more and then I tried to achieve this by using tracing paper technique which I learnt from discussion hour . Firstly, I put tracing paper on the printed image and sketched the outlines. And for the next step I did the same previous step but this time I just used only horizonal and vertical lines. And then I was able to recognise relations more clearly. But I’m afraid that I couldn’t use those infrmations succesfuly. Unfortunately I made a little figurative model I guess.


First Experience on Abstracting


In the first session of Basic Design course our instructors gave us an assignment which was a brand new subject for us. They wanted us to choose an image from Pinterest and to abstract it. At the first time I was a little bit shocked because I had no idea what abstraction means. I did a little research on the internet and asked things to my friends who are in the upper classes and also from the other schools too. Then I started look up on Pinterest to choose some pics. I chose couple of pics and I changed my mind zillions of time. Then I decided on this one and tried to make my model.

Abstraction of an Image


Bilboa Guggenheim Museum, Spain – designed by Frank Gehry, 1997

In the first week of the Architectural Communication Techniques course, our instructors gave us a photograph and assigned us to abstract it. But it was not just that easy. There was a troublesome part which was a tough period for us. We had to abstract it by only using the horizontal or vertical or angular parallel lines.

Initially, I started doing my work by cutting my paper into the given sizes (33,5×48 cm). And then I started enlarging the given image by sketching it with my 7H pencil very lightly to make a unclear guideline. I decided to use vertical lines because iI thought they would have help me to show transitions between dark and light parts easier, instead of using horizontal or angular lines. Then I started sketching by using my set squares and parallel straightedge.

I took darkness and lightness as reference. In the darker parts, I tried to sketches more closer to eachother and I used my darkest and the softest pencil (6B). And in the lighter parts I put 4mm distance between lines and I used my 5H pencil.

The most painful part was keeping the paper neat and clean. So I decided to cover the plotted parts with my tracing paper. I think it has worked well. It was my first experience on sketching. I hope I did a good job, hope you like it 🙂
