Project 2 was entirely centered around the mechanical and tectonic relationships that occur and should be controlled in a structure. The second half of the semester began with an analysis of fields and diagrams; my study is shown here. The 13x13 array of identical empty 1-inch by 1-inch squares was composed and set to follow a very specific linear advancement, to convey a larger exponential growth illusion. Each row and column (corresponding to horizontal or vertical expansion) changes in a constant flow, yet retains individuality throughout. The assignment grew into a hypothetical Denver structure, with four (or more) stacked arrays to convey the original intent of your motif.
