Form Kinematics and Movement

After having attained a certain level of proficiency in the understanding of manipulation of form, this studio is an introduction of movement as a fourth dimension of form. It involves having a critical look at the first three dimensions and how one dimension unfolds into another leading to creation of credible and innovative forms.

To understand materials and structures which change their forms through movement.
Basic understanding of the field of kinematics and its application in form manipulation.
Developing sensitivity and solution for techno-aesthetic detailing.
To understand relationships between lines, planes, curves and surfaces in different states or conditions.
Understanding of how a straight element becomes curved and vice versa.
Understanding ways in which a volume collapses into other states ( eg flat).
Understanding how forms transform from small to big.
Understanding transformation of lines into a plane and a plane into 2 and 3 dimensions.
