Space and Materiality: Culture (High Line Assignment)


So in this post, I am documenting my visit to New York City’s High Line. The class was asked to specifically sketch twenty drawings worth of various: flora, fauna, people, street furniture, art, etc. inhabited on the space. Second, we were told to go in groups of three (in my case, two- due to lack of students to group), and come up with exactly five “temporary inhabitations” that minimize and maximize the space it occupies through photography of ourselves. Lastly, we were asked to create twenty sketches (five for each category) of: cantilevering, bridging, intersecting, and hanging from/ suspended from objects and/or spaces. If you scroll down, you should be able to view all of my recordings and the completion of this assignment.

Hello, My name is Megan Taylor, I am a returning student here at Parsons; my major is Fashion Design with a peaking interest in environmentalism and animal welfare; I hope to transform the industry someday...slowly but surely. My wish is to combine luxury and aesthetic appeal with the consciousness of how and where it is made along with the idea of what to do with it after use. I have been following my need to create and share with the world art and fashion since the tender age of eleven years old.
