Me and my Dreams

Assignment — Tags: , , — Angelina Namkung @ 3:24 pm

When I was a kid, I used to have nightmares that a big black dog would come eat my dreams, and that’s why I could never remember any of my dreams in the morning.  So I created this padded sort-of-helmet, which would protect me and my dreams while I slept.

Wide Awake.

“Conscious Sleep”

Assignment,In-Class — JamieEarnest @ 1:09 am

Sleep is an unconscious, vulnerable and unknowing state of which we all experience daily. This soft sculpture piece connects the sleeping, unconscious world to the alert and awake world. The photo series shows the process of a full sleep (the intact sleeping mask placed over both models’ eyes) to a half sleep as represented by a split, overly plush and exaggerated mask. The winding fabric in between not only links the models but represents the unpredictable state from the experience of sleeping. It is a connection to the unknown. In a way, this piece gives security to the models, as well as my audience, by only blinding one eye as opposed to sleeping with both eyes blinded.

Geodesic Sphere Origami

Our assignment was to create, out of origami, an object that represents ‘progress’. I have always been fascinated by nature’s ability to form geometry shapes out of atoms to molecules, an interesting example of this would be the bucky ball.

I chose to create the geodesic sphere origami using the laser cutter. To me, the sphere in many aspects represents progress because of its constant repeating faces, the more faces the object encompassed the more sphere it becomes. However the object also holds elements of failure, because although the more faces the object has the more sphere-like it will become, it will never become a sphere, which has only one face.
