A brand new concept has been introduced to us prior to our previous works, now we are expected to include human scale to our models. Regarding this criteria, we have came up with concepts like human bodily experiences, visual relationships of the space, orienting and shaping human body, etc.
Erimtan Musuem and its surrounding was our starting place for experiencing horizontal surfaces.
We soon grasped that our directional movements, bodily movements and how we feel in these places are changed with respect to the change in horizontal surfaces. For instance, when faced with an ending we change our direction and rotate our body in order to continue walking/running or the horizontal surface provide this directionality itself when it’s circular . Additionally, diversity of the levels of corresponding horizontal surfaces determine our leg joints with different inclination.
Another thing I have noticed is that texture of the horizontal surface affects my behaviours: for instance, it is harder for me to walk on a soft landspace such as mud comparing to hard landscape suach as concrete.
As a group, we tried to show these attributions in a model. For giving a sense of different texture we peeled the top of the corrugated cardboard showing how distinctive behaviours occur. Then, we gave changing inclination in the citadel area to show that how we have experienced narrow and wide horizontal surfaces. Also, with lower ceiling height we felt overcasted where with higher ceiling height we felt at ease.
