Course: Form Studio / Year One


A Tool for Making _____________

This project challenges you to create a design tool you’ve all probably used before but most likely taken for granted, the Template. This investigation aims to explore and complicate a conventional tool of the design trade in both a physical and conceptual sense. By creating a physical mark-making tool, you build a new model for creating form, language, communication, and storytelling. These tools should also be accessible to other designer/makers and facilitate them building on the language you create. This project will combine the cold logic of systems design and the pleasure and idiosyncrasies of hand work. This project will cross all disciplines in that you will be responsible for a 3-Dimentional form, that interacts with multiple users, to make 2 Dimensional marks. This assignment will address these multiple areas and ask you to address several methodologies.
