objects parts bodies situations.alarm clock. umbrella. stapler. reading glasses. bicycle bell. corded phone. models. drawing. photographs. writing. dissection.
for six weeks my students have studied these objects: how do we interact with them? with parts? how does the body generate action in tandem with these objects? how have they changed our daily schedules?
the objects have been dissected, photographed in film series, explored through drawings, writing, and words. each part has been studied in response to an action, material and form. and we have found a universe to recreate. here are some beautiful photo studies of tiny actions, models and diagrams of movement.
