Year 1 Architecture students have been studying Le Corbusiers paintings and architecture and have developed a series of planar relief models as part of the Design, Process and Communication module. The resulting models will be used to develop a further set of models to bring students through a journey of transcription or process. The photographs show a small selection of the hundred models that have been produced. Watch this space for the next iteration to make full use of our casting suite! Thanks to Jeff Pashley, one of our workshop staff who has been working closely with educating students on model making so far this year. Seems to be working!
Frequency Festival of Digital Culture is a biennial festival hosted in the city of Lincoln, providing a platform to celebrate the pioneering spirit of digital innovation and culture through exhibition, creative collision and debate. It showcases artists’ work from all over the world, using a historic city as its canvas and sharing it around the globe.
A multi disciplinary team of students and staff based in the Lincoln School of Architecture and Design and the Lincoln School of Computer Science has exhibited at the Drill Hall in Lincoln for Frequency Festival. Working as a team for a number of years, exploring the question; how to materialize or make physical the immaterial world of social media? Projects they have completed include the Gold Medal winning Twitter gardens in Chelsea and Harrogate.
A mechanised installation controlled via Twitter, Pynchon’s Wall searches for key words and phrases related to this year’s Frequency theme of liberation and moves its panels based on the data it receives. The wall mines its own analysis and responds directly to certain subjects, allowing the audience to interact with and direct the work, forming a visual representation of public opinion.
The project has been highlighted as one of the exhibits to see in numerous publications and social media!
