The Head Drawings

Our first major lesson for Re:Presentation was to draw our head, in portrait, profile and from the top. We weren't suppose to use anything but a mirror for the front, with maybe some help from cameras for the top and side. Most of us used cameras for all sides.

The first week we all turned in the basic s and it went well for those of us who didn't do anything too radical. A couple of peole got too creative and found it difficult to move on to the3 next level

For the second week we were suppose to find a system of relationships in our head that are typical to most systems (i.e. the head is 5 eyes wide) but specific to us. Above is my grid of measurements. I did not put up the actual drawings as they are very similar to the first weeks.

The 3rd time around he told us to transform them again but to be architectural. No one seemed to get the teachers hint that this was some kind of architectural exersice. I went about making a grid based on the most normal measurement I found the previous week and tried to draw me with straight lines and arcs based on the points form the grid. My hair was very popular.

For the final week we were to tranform it again. Based on a suggestion from a guest lecturer I used a brush and no measureing tools for this piece. The orange arcs are the completion of all the circles from the previous week and the blue piece are offsets of the large interior spaces to accentuate the new spaces created.
