This week In my 2-D Design class I had to come up with an outline for my Deep Space project. The objective was to “explore pattern and space through perspective,” and to “project pattern into an illusion of three-dimensional space.”
As my professor was explaining to the class what we had to do, it sounded complicated. Afterwards, when she showed us pictures of examples it looked even more complicated!
It also seemed like a good opportunity to experiment with designs on the computer because the designs she showed us looked very precise and clean.
They reminded me of 3-D wallpaper designs. I didn’t know what I wanted to do until I went to math class the next day. I was never a fan of math and I’m definitely not a fan of this class, because it’s not regular math like algebra or geometry. We were doing ancient math that the Egyptians and Babylonians did, and learning about base systems. We spent a little time on the base 2 system or a binary system. This reminded me of the matrix, because binary systems are usually used for computer systems. Instead of using zero and one I used one and two because that’s what it reminded me of.
The image below is what I achieved by combining the use of Adobe Illustrator and one point perspective:
By using Adobe Illustrator I basically made a template for my design to then use as a base for my hand-drawn final product.
