suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Mark ERICSON: This introduction to architectural drawing in Woodbury University’s Graduate program focused largely on the comprehension and inventive deployment of Euclidean principles through a study of descriptive geometry and skiagraphy. . . .
Students developed a series of two-dimensional relationships derived from Book Three of Euclid’s Elements and began a process of developing three-dimensional forms through basic operations with descriptive geometry. These forms were then used to orthographically project a series of shadows based on specific times of day as a means of “inflation”. The process of shadow projection was used as a transformational operation, but also as means of relating the seemingly weightless and abstract world of Euclid to the phenomenon of light. Each student’s project bent or otherwise manipulated the rules of both descriptive geometry and skiagraphy as means of developing individualized and imaginative methods of moving between two and three dimensions.
