|Representing Motion Project
In this project, students constructed models demonstrating the motion of an object. First, they were required to do a drawing showing an object in motion, studying the Italian "Dynamist" movement. Then they built models based on these drawings, using color and composition to demonstrate movement..
||Portable Path Project
(foamcore and watercolor paper)
The assignment here was to engage in an exploratory walk, and then "map" it with foamcore and paper. A final ironic twist to the project was that the model of the walk was itself to be made portable!
||Ball Drop Project
Here, the students had a difficult assignment: build a structure that would allow a steel ball to roll along a path for precisely twenty seconds from start to finish.
