HANGING MODEL / EXPERIMENT THREE
Referenced from the works of June Lee, our model investigated the variations of space formed by the circular arrangements of strings affected by gravity and weight. The placement of strings derives from two circular hanging rails from the top, which are divided into forty segments. By cross-arraying the two ends of the strings, each tied to a metal hook, on the two circles, volumes are created with the distance between the two ends and repetition of lines. To strengthen the shape of the volumes, a hook is hung on each string to provide an addition of weight and gravity, emphasizing the geometric aspect of our forms. By further experimenting with overlaying volumes and different colored strings, we create a series of spiraling volumes. For the frame, we developed a sheath mechanism where the circular rail board can be slid in, supporting the structure while also maintaining the aesthetics.
