Frank Lloyd Wright - Guggenheim Museum, Bentu Design - San, Bentu Design - Bang. Concrete is a material that comprises of cement and aggregate, it can be cast in a mould and it can capture fine details, it can be used in pavements, buildings and underwater structures. It can also be carved when the concrete is taken out of the mould. Concrete gives off an industrial feeling and is cool to the touch. It can be polished to add a smoother surface. Concrete gets stronger over time as the chemical reaction with the air causes it to cure. Pouring with bubbles can give a porous surface. I like the industrial feeling that concrete can bring to a space, it makes me feel calm and peaceful.
Philippe Nigro - Cuts Table, Elod Beregszaszi - 3 Spine Concertina, Elisa Mearelli - La Pietra E La Piuma. The process of cutting is when you divide or make incisions in a material such as cutting paper with a pair of scissors. Other tools that can be used for cutting include: a craft knife, a saw, a guillotine and a shredder. The word cut can symbolise division or a sense of isolation from others. More industrial cutting tools include: die cuts for a specific pattern, laser cutters and flatbed plotter cutters can be programmed with a computer for more accuracy. In the fourth century paper cuttings were used in religious decorations or stencils for embroidery. Paper can be cut very intricately if fine point scissors are used.
Henry Tennist - Anarco-Architecture, Phillip Watts - Chaos, Alexander Biserama Becherer - Paratropolis. Anarchism is a movement in which people believe that the government should be abolished. Other meanings for anarchy are chaos and rebellion, moving away from convention. The contrasting shapes and patterns in the first piece should signs of rebellion and chaos. It was created in a digital environment in a game which shows that anarchy can be conveyed in both the physical and virtual world. The way the installation in the second piece wraps around the bridge makes it very immersive. The varying size of fonts and objects that protrude and overlap in the third piece show rebellion and revolt, as it is not sticking to a set grid line.
