LINE EXPLORATION!

How do I begin this one? It is like, every design class brings some enthusiasm in me. We learn something new each single day. We were supposed to make pairs and do a line exercise.

When I heard we are going to do line exercise today, I though oh god, it is going to be boring, we will draw straight or curvy lines BUT NO.

We were given a word and we had to do justification to the word through lines so, the person sitting next to me had to hold my hand as forcefully as she could and still we had to draw and not stop.

We thought we drew absolutely rubbish things but when we saw it as designs on bodyform and placed them rightly, it was all gone amazing.

TANGRAMS WITH FRIENDS!

The next day we had to transfer our best design on sheets and had to give a 3d look to it by adding darts or folding and make our friends wear it. We had to take and measure the approximate size of the person and then drape our tangram design around our friends. We did a little fun photoshoot in between wearing each other’s designs and realized which design looked better and why? On which styleline our tangram lies on or is passing through. It was amusing to see through everybody’s thought processes that their work displayed so perfectly. Here are some pictures of my group showcasing the tangram dressforms!IMG_2807IMG_2808IMG_2810IMG_2809IMG_2815IMG_2816IMG_2818IMG_2819

THE TANGRAMS!

TANGRAM! I think you all have heard this word before. Try to recall and you’ll remember it playing it with when you were a kid. It’s a geometrical puzzle of a square cut into seven pieces which can be arranged to make various other shapes. We were distributed these and the croquis and we had to play the smallest of sizes on the bodyform then with the biggest of sizes and then using all of them together on just one body form. It was so amazing to see every individual was doing something different from the other and none of our works were same when we has same shapes to play with. Our design of tangrams on the body reflected our style of working so we had to crack it and play it in a different way. My brain and my hands were working together to make different look each time. Isn’t it amazing how, if the brain and hands work as a right connection, the outcome can be so surprising to the person herself. Here are some examples in which I explored and would suggest you to do the same as an interesting exercise.

THE STYLETAPE!

Ever wondered what makes a design look so appealing to the eyes. Even I didn’t know a technical answer to that but then this exercise gave me the answer. The stylelines of a basic body like centre front, princess line, hip level, bust level make it wonderful. The styletape exercise made us realize the inner budding designers we were. Soon I’ll share some of my style of working with you guys.

DOTS EXPLORATION!

Dots! Something that we have recognized since childhood. May it be the dot joining game or dots we should never forget to put over the ‘i’. Bow all grown up, what’s your perspective of looking at a dot. When this task was given to me , I automatically thought of a bindi. We just had to make anything and everything with black dots. The best part of it was painting with fingers, just like when we were little. This exercise not only took me back to childhood but also made me realize that dots make up a whole lot more that we think. Soon I’ll be showing some pictures of my explorations with you. Stay tuned!

2D MAP

The process continues with 2d map and as a group project we failed to attract our faculty with our 1st attempt of making 2d map. Implementation of our ideas didn’t went well. We couldn’t come up with another ideas and other groups had finished their 2d maps by that time. We did slow but progressed. Finally me and my group members agreed on the same idea and started implementing those ideas. We agreed on stitching and making Rajouri’s map but again occurred a problem that I didn’t know stitching. My friends helped me with that and learnt new things during this course of time. Well, I knw it was a small thing but I was proud of myself when I started stitching. Someone said try,try till you succeed and we did that till we finished it off and got complimented for it.WhatsApp Image 2017-04-29 at 5.58.10 AM

MICRO AREA

Wedding bells topped our list and became the micro area for our project. For one that it had a lot for us to do and second, that it is one of the most famous shop amongst all others in Rajouri. The staff their was welcoming and kind enough to let us interview them in between their busy day. This shop does not sell , but rent one clothes and jewellery for weddings.

It had a huge variety for both men and women. Their collection was both different and vibrant than compared to other shops that we looked at. The collection of its jewellery was also a pretty one. It mostly had kundan jewellery. The designs were attractive and eye catching. Over all , it proved to be a good choice for us.

2nd VISIT

Second visit of our research, and we went with a different perspective and went home with a different one. On the 2nd day we got to observe the product culture and the social culture the market held altogether. Rajouri being the macro area , we had to look for a micro area from within the market. For a start we went and observed every shop that could have possible design intervention areas for my team to work on. Talking to the people who had worked their since a very long time or had been staying in the neighbourhood of the market was a huge help. This visit was a lot more different than my 1st visit as it was more detailed and informative. Ending the day , we decided on a few shops that could work as out micro area. They were Pac Jewellers , little angels , wedding bells and rajesh juice corner ; all with different variety of availability. To know which shop made it to the top choice , stay tuned for the next post.
