Objective: Building six paper reliefs with geometric patterns.
Brief: http://pxstudio.us/pdf/p6_surface-n-relief_sp13.pdf

Basic Concept:
High Relief, Light and Shadow, Bleat, Chiaroscuro,
Convex and Concave, Movement and Transition, Rhythm, Unity, Pattern,
Openness and Tightness, Continuous and Discontinuous Surfaces

Detailed Concepts & Solution:

  1. Dividing the Paper
  2. Linear Divisions & Variations
  3. Rotational Divisions & Variations
  4. Diagonal Divisions
  5. Grid Divisions
  6. Symmetrical Repeats
    • Repetition
    • Stretch & Skew
    • Reflection (Glide Reflection)
    • Rotational Pleats
    • Box Pleats
    • Spiral Pleats
    • Twisted Pleats
    • V-Pleats
    • Knife Pleats
    • Gathered Plates (Accordion Pleats)
  7. Asymmetrical Repeats
    • Incremental Pleats
    • Spiral Pleats
    • Stretch & Skew
    • Twisted Pleats
    • Circle Pleats
    • V-Pleats

Process:
You will create preliminary designs for showing some principles of design. You may begin the project with brain-storming, idea-sketching and paper-folding, then transfer the ideas to the relief stage.

Material:
• Rulers. (12” T-square)
• X-acto knives.
• Mechanical pencil.
• Paper option: Art paper / Card stock / Railroad board (6-ply)
• Black foam board
• Cutting board
• White glue or double-sided tape
