The first day back involved a pecha kucha presentation of our ideal object, the project was called Gesamtkunstwerk project. this involved a presentation of 15 slides, each slide stayed on the screen for 20 seconds then moving on which in total made the presentation 4 minutes long. there was no text aloud, just the visual aids and my self talking about the objects i had chosen.
Marcel Duchamp- Fountain 1917-1964. Taken a ordinary and functional object that is overlooked and placed in in a gallery for a visual and contextual purpose. He was the first to blur the lines of functional and aesthetic
Barbara Hepworth- Not overly contextual, her works more based on the physical object and its presence within a space.Material, Process, shape, form, colour, proportions
Richard Serra, Matter of time. Cortan steel, protective rust, Scale, engineering used to manufacture and create balanced pieces of metal. How the huge torques and ellipses effect you’re spacial awareness of the room and your perception of walking straight.
John Lewis dinner set. Gold, colour story, shape, innovative basket although the function of said basket is questionable. Stands out aesthetically but still very functionable.
Copper mug, tk maxx, Pure copper mug looks fantastic however a very good conductor so not suitable for hot drinks and tends to tarnish.
Julian Stair & Simone Ten Hompel, collaboration between a ceramacist and silversmith which they “ re nature” the vessel and balanced and minimal combination of ceramic and metal
Young-I Kim, emotional connection. Showing copper in different ways by enhancing it with enamel and gold leaf, minimal form allows the glow to contribute equally as the shape and material.
Ladies and gentleman studios. Brass and copper lighting. Minimal lines exposed and frame the light bulb. Incorporating it in the design but not hiding any of the components that create the light. Honest design, nothing hidden.
Norwegian design company- Tent 2 years ago catalogue picture. lighting that helps improve air quality by introducing plants. Aesthetic and functional.
Forge.Craft in the bay. Nils hint. Forged iron, ready made tool, and gilding. Gradient from shiny gold and new to used old with history a story. Balance, Colours, mediums, History
Forge. Craft in the bay. Christian Vaughan Jones. Forged steel and limestone. Using different material that reach completely differently to force. Resistance and capturing the moment of impact.
New designers. The use of 3 traditional materials used in a innovative way to re create a common object into something more visually appealing and expensive. An object that could be useful but also looks good.
New designers. Anthony Milton. Kintsuki. Gold played wire. Historical vale i may look in to. Visual effect of the delicate and natural form of the gold lines.
