Have A (Big) Nice Day

Plastics appear to originate from nowhere. What could have traced their genealogy, the visual reminiscence of their material origin in nature, folds itself inside a desirable mask of “newness”, a necessary disguise for plastics to be consumed.

 

Plastics negotiate the boundary between nature and culture. We become both protected and entrapped by this impermeable material. By misusing ordinary plastic components, this thesis project challenges the intimate feelings of domesticity, constructed by myths of hygiene and comfort.

 

This workshop, “Intimate Plastics” introduces the culture of plastics, their mass production and mass consumption. We invite our participants to touch, feel and eventually build a physical structure as an intervention to the exhibition space using ready-made plastic parts.

 

Soft, gradient light cast on smooth surfaces of Platonic geometries.

Subtle, mild colors diffusing in air.

A slight frosty gloss.

This is the contemporary imagery allusion of intimacy, a cheap source of love and care.

Toy: City of Circle

The toy "City of Circle" is the abstracted construction of a city.

Upon the bowl-like plywood base as the landscape, the toy provided an open-ended game: leveled or tilted, higher or wider, the children as a group can always find a way of interpreting the process of building.

 

“I’m in a bad health. Malnutrition plagues me. I take in a modicum of fame and wealth, but I am destined, you know, secretly, please, to change the world. I read Alberti, every night in the living room I rent. Beijing is expensive. Alberti is good.

 

A thin layer of skin separated exterior and interior identities. In its appearance the inscripted body becomes a mask.

 

The mask allows the Geisha to hide her identity so as to be integrated into another radically different reality within a mythologically defined order, and to incarnate as a new character.

 
 

Physical models enable our imagination of scale-shifting. Models are rabbit holes where architects travel as both a thumbelina and on the beanstalk.

My Gluey Brunch

Evolving from the crude Lambertian diffuse shading, rendering algorithms can now fabricate the utmost delicacy that may leave reality less desirable. Multiple calculation models lay on top of each other to forge a sweet wonderland that loves you and deserves your love.

 

Through these defamiliarized objects, we hope to provoke the awareness of another round of self-surveillance, the potential construction of the collective vision in 3D space through photogrammetry.
