Project 4 Developing design ideas
Stage 1 Introduction and preparation
The first exercise was about ‘making space move’. I arranged the squares as instructed to create different kinds of energy. The exercise was easy as it only involved following instructions but was a useful way of demonstrating how certain orderly arrangements of shapes are calm and static while others create tension. I thought of how Ikebana (Japanese flower arrangements) although very precise, are always off-centre, never symmetrical and this creates interest.
