2 Point Perspectives

A series of 6 two point perspectives are represented below to explore the relationship between three "T-Shaped" prisms in space. Each of these perspectives is then drawn from two other different points of view.

Oprah Winfrey was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi and below is an image of the Mississippi River. In order to make the valley, the environment is also inspired by the next image which is a view of the urban life in Chicago, where Winfrey lives and works at the moment. Hence the final valley will be an integration of the Mississippi River and Chicago.

MashUp Text

The MashUp text below has been selected from the combination of three separate news articles for each of the three clients (Oprah Winfrey, Lady Gaga, Jonathan Ive) to suggest the idea of POWER.

Power is the possession of controlling influence and the status of holding an official or elected position and having the corresponding authority. It can also be defines as the ability to put meaningful forms onto what before was indeterminate to change lives.
The necessities of achieving to a powerful level in life are abiding belief in self-help, positive thinking and successful communications to be able to influence others. Personal desires and being exceptionally perceptive and diligent can also help people to reach wealth and impressive powerful stages to become famous, until they get the whole world in their hands.

1 Point Perspectives

A series of 6 one point perspectives are represented below to explore the relationship between three "T-Shaped" prisms in space. Each of these perspectives is then drawn from two other different points of view (below the eye level and above the eye level, depending on the location of the horizon line). Also, for each prism a word is used which connects with the points of view of the prism, and refers to the idea of power.

Experiment 2 Submission

The 5 hypotheses for each of the three clients; Isaac Newton, Maria Agnesi and Sigmund Freud.

A series of 6 axonometrics created from the amalgamation of 5 rectangular prisms + A second series of them from a different angle. Below each axonometric is its related hypothesis that generates it.

One pair of axonometrics has been chosen and their 3 dimension models have been constructed using Google Sketch up.

Then the models have been exported to an environment in Crysis Wars. Two different situations have been chosen to place each model depending on their shapes and dimensions, in order to experience a variety of landscape forms in this environment.

A series of 3 parallel projections and their sketches from an opposite point of view.
These are the interconnection of different pairs of drawings from each client. One of the sketches has been chosen to develop the labs and meeting rooms for Newton and Freud to experiment their hypotheses.

An Electroliquid aggregation is formed by combining two of the hypotheses (Newton and Freud).

A series of 36 custom textures has been drawn to represent the entire range from light to dark. This range is seen in both the smaller groups of 6 squares and the larger group of 36 squares.

Three of these textures, one dark one medium and one light, have been applied to the significant rectangular prisms which are the Newton’s lab, Freud’s lab and the separation of the labs.



3D Model in Sketch up + Texture 
In the image below, Newton's lab is places on the right which consists of 5 levels with different heights and a dark texture. This is done to measure the effects of gravity on each levels, so Newton can accurately conclude the results of his experiments when there are more situations to test the results. Moreover, the dark texture chosen for this part of the model is formed by intersecting curved lines to indicate the directions of gravity, which is another aspects that Newton requires to consider in order to conduct his experiments.
The Freud's lab is on the left hand side of the model where a medium texture is used. As it can be understood from Freud's hypothesis "Everything anyone does is driven in someway by a subconscious sexual desire" his lab needs to be a more private place so that he feels comfortable when doing his experiments. The medium texture has been chosen for this part of the model because it is not as dark to reduce the light inside the lab, and it is not as light to draw other's attentions to inside of the lab, hence confines the lab to Freud's experiments.
The texture used on the wall between the two labs consists of light straight lines, indicating the relationship between Newton's hypotheses and Freud's hypotheses-electroliquid aggregation-since the lines have a sense of connection between the two ideas, and they are actually placed between the labs.

A series of smaller detail elements have been added to the model to supplement the electroliquid aggregation that it represents.

In Newton's lab there is a ramp, a bridge and three electronic platforms that move up and down like an elevator, so that Newton can go easily from one level to the other to conduct his experiments.
In Freud's lab there are two columns placed on the front side of the lab to emphasize the idea that his lab needs to be kept privately.

 Images from Crysis Wars environment :

The image below represents the meeting space for the clients on a flat piece of landscape surrounded by trees and stones.

The images below have been captured from three different positions and the character is the indication for the scale of the model. The distinctive ways of approaching the meeting room from each lab is also demonstarted in these images.
