This first photo is one of my modular materials, it is latched and layered due to notches created between the spaces of each shape.
Now, I have created a structure that is interconnected solely on the basis of shape and notch, there are bridged panels that are “H” figured which simply slide into the notches of two square panels.
This one is almost identical except for the figure, angle and shape. It is more pear-shaped and triangular, sprawling outward as opposed to being plainly uniform.
I am not sure what I was trying to accomplish with this piece, it started out as a citrus-fruit shape and suddenly became three dimensional and bendable.
Onto the pliable (paper material studies), so the first photo listed is simply black, crinkled paper with notches near four corners and looped paper scrolling through the notches. The second is a blue-hued paper that has been weaved; rectangular holes were cut-out and strips of paper were simply weaved through.
Last but not least, with these two we are looking at both done in paper. The first is in white, and inspiration was drawn from the salmon leather shown at the material library (a field-trip we took as a class) the process was simply cutting semi circles but leaving the top uncut for flap-purposes and notching mini-triangles on each semi-circle. For the piece to the right, this is actually in black and is simply a cut-out shape pattern, repeated throughout with a shape-shift every two lines.
