A Walkable History of The Yerba Buena Island School, 2019.
In response to Dorothee Imbert’s Skewed Realities: The Garden and the Axonometric Drawing, I was prompted to consider a two-part axonometric collage as a dynamic tool that allows designers to better understand the notion of space.
I incorporated a range of textures pictorial representation of The Yerba Buena Island School to highlight the contrast in user experiences throughout the path - allowing the audience to “comprehend the entire composition with little effort”.
Subsequently, I also attempted to harmonize the highly graphic nature of the design with a suggestion of reality.
By strategically placing persons of both old and young glancing into the direction of the naval station, the collages essentially portray an intellectual view that generates feelings of remembrance which echoes the historical context of the site.
The piece also attempts to kindle curiosity through a sculptural space in which time and movement are suspended, and thus unraveling elements “that are known to the mind and not to the eye”.
