Mograph and the Figure – Student Work

Project List: Project 1Project 2 , Project 3, Project 4

Project 1 – Knowing a Place

Made with Tangram’s Heightmapper

Inspired by Rick Silva’s En plein air series, you will create a series of quick landscape sketches that capture something in the living experience of a place, beyond the shape and color of the location. 4 sketches each from 2 different sites (Minimum of 8 total). You must use real map info, color/elevation plus basic objects. focus on lighting, rendering. No non standard shaders. Evoke and expand on the nature of the place, cannot be completely abstract. Don’t use built in noise.

Project 2 – Public/Private

Made with the Structure Scanner

The Private/Public Divide. Scan 4 different spaces you would consider personally private. Do not clean, arrange, or adjust anything. You can take more than one scan from each space. Then scan the same kind of space in a public building (home bathroom vs bathroom in Library, car vs bus, TV room vs movie theatre…). The pairs will be shown as a diptych so think about how you might convey differences as well as highlight similarities, also how they will connect aesthetically. Take advantage of the fact that these are fragments. Consider how lighting, basic geometry, and materials can create a setting.

Project 3 – A Part of History

Made with Agisoft Photoscan and historical models from New Palmyra and many others

Look at online models from scans and reconstructions and choose one cultural heritage building or site, older than 300 years, destroyed or no longer functional. Only use models with at least 1000 polygons. Research the site/building to understand its history. You will do 6 scans of local/regional sites into which you will place the model. Consider the reason for the placement, scale, and relationship. Build a new context connecting history to the present.

Project 4 – Inside/Outside the Body

Made with Depthkit

For the fourth project create 5 animations, 2-5 seconds in length. The resolution should be 1920×1080 OR 1080×1920 (vertical). For each animation you will use at least one original depthkit model and one original 3D scan of a person/body (using your preferred method). Conceptually, consider the notion of inner and outer spaces. 3D scans represent surfaces, details, colors, but are hollow shells. The depthkit footage is made of these same shells but they shift over time in a way that might reveal something more, even with less detail. Think about the ideas conveyed by human faces, bodies, gestures. Remember these are 3D forms, and so the depthkit forms can emerge through and intersect with the scanned forms in creative ways – use this to your advantage. You will also be encouraged to animate the camera, moving around and through forms as part of the animation. Think about what this can reveal and how this can make ideas unfold.
