suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
alice WONG CHUI-KWAN: as a parallel exercise with “deep ornament” studio in dia, the task is to design an emerging pattern for each of the 15 space filling polyhedral, fabricated by the laser-cutting machine.
this is to investigate how surface pattern can be designed according to the geometry and structural order of the polyhedral. as such, the pattern is not merely a pattern, but can create a deeper meaning and effect to the space. moreover, this exercise embraces the principle of “part-to-whole” and “whole-to-part” relationship. each polyhedron is seen as a component, which can be stacked together in a 3-dimensional way to form a bigger structure.
when they come together, the overall idea of dissolving the solidity of the mass from in to out gives another new meaning to the whole. at last,each polyhedron has a unique mixed pattern.
