  • Digital Novelty: Crystallised Geometrics
    paris FRANCE

    Over 100 iterations and studies which challenges, and produced through, the premise of digital production and analogue tooling, “Digital Novelty” is a series of design-research that is an intersection between of platonic solids and the notion of basic geometric shapes, assisted by 3-D modelling software (Rhinoceros 3D), 3-D printing technologies (additive manufacturing processes), and hand-drawn inked on vellum exercises. The research and development of “Digital Novelty: Crystallised Geometrics” reveals itself through a feedback system that carefully interrogates a simple method of production and design.

    A shape, a volume, a color, a surface is something itself. It shouldn’t be concealed as part of a fairly different whole.
    —Donald Clarence Judd (1928–94)

    The collaboration between the Judd Foundation (Marfa, Texas) and the course is to further investigate, critically examine, and apply both theoretical study and practical design-research into the highly debated idea of “delegated fabrication,” within the context of design-fabrication, in the field of architectural design. It has been widely publicized that most of Judd’s work from 1964 onwards was delegated rather than fabricated by the artist himself. Rather than constructing his work personally, Judd had it industrially fabricated—a practice criticized at the time but emulated today by many contemporary artists.

  • Systematic Narcissism

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Wendy W. FOK: Systematic Narcissism is a hybridization through the notion of the planetary grid system and the symmetry of narcissism. The installation is based on the obsession of the physical reflection of the object/subject relationship, created by the idea of man-made versus planetary projected planes (grids) of which humans have made onto the earth (i.e. Pierre Charles L’Enfant plan 1791 of the golden section projected onto Washington DC).

    TETRA V.2 is an urban design installation reacting as a commentary to the contemporary state of economic, sustainable, and environmental developmental local (Hong Kong) and international issues, surrounding the state of utility within our urban and socio-political function of citizenship within the urban environment.

    Using modular system that functions at a variety of scales, from the object scale all the way up to the urban scale, the design is based off of a fractal geometric logic creating an urban architectural intervention “without end”. TETRA V.2 becomes an urban addition within the city, formulated by architecture.
