1.1 INITIAL STUDIES: Squares, Circles, and Grids

A) Squares Along a Straight Line:

The goal of this drawing was to understand how to draw and edit a square block then array it along an orthogonal line.

B) Angled Grid with Circle:

The goal of this exploration was to create a grid at an angle and place a circle along it. However, the grid did not work and we were not able to get it at the proper angle. It resulted in a short first line and last line and longer lines in between.

C) Circular Rotation/Go Home:

This drawing utilized the go home piece of the script in order to create an angular rotation in the Z axis of 5 degrees two times with two separate lines and circles at the end of them. It was then repeated to create a full rotation of 360 degrees.

1.2 INITIAL STUDIES: Triangles

A) Triangular Line/Rotation:

After creating a triangular block the goal of the drawing was to scale the line outward and place triangles on the end of line while exploring rotation as well.

B) Triangular Spiral:

Taking the spiral and making it into a triangle was this exploration and it was successful.

C) Triangular Rotation/Array

This drawing arrayed and rotated a right triangle from the same beginning point. It also attempted to hatch inside of the triangles with lines, but this was unsuccessful and it did not happen.

2.1 CONTINUED STUDIES: CURVES

 A) Sine Star:

This was an accidental discovery in trying to create a continuous sine curve along a straight line. The curves seemed to repeat and fall back onto itself in order to create a star.

B) Random Box Boundary:

This study was exploring what the a curve could do when under within a square boundary.

C) Scaling Sine Curve:

This was an accidental discovery trying again to create a continuous sine curve along a straight line. However, due to the large size of the sin function the curves looped back around itself.

D) Spiral Star Array:

Taking the sine star created earlier and playing around with a spiral we were able to array it along the spiral curve while scaling it up. It was not exactly what we were trying to do as we wanted more stars to be arrayed along the spiral but it was a helpful study to explore.

3.1 CONTINUED STUDIES: EDITED SCRIPTS/DRAWINGS

 A) Edited: Circular Rotation 1

This drawing was exploring scaling and rotation from the initial studies.

A) Edited: Circular Rotation 2

This drawing was exploring scaling and rotation from the initial studies. It also introduced the idea of scaling back into itself.

B) Edited: Triangular Rotation/Array 1

The script was edited to remove the hatching concept and instead repeat and scale many more times.

B) Edited: Triangular Rotation/Array 2

The script was edited to remove the hatching concept and instead repeat and scale many more times. It resulted in a scaling and spiraling triangular pattern.

  1. (Curve study B: Random Box Boundary)
    The initial study of exploring how a curve performs within a square boundary seems to have potential for a more provocative study of how the curves can constitute a pattern when strategically repeated and rotated.
    Maybe by changing the scale or depth of the curve, the varying dips can start to produce a more aesthetically pleasing overall image.
