Assignment 05

This semester we will be designing a wearable apparatus for exploring the embodiment of designed artifacts. This project will require you to incorporate physical and virtual practices into a singular semester long project. Our design exploration is comprised of five assignments which will require you to work both independently within your assigned group and collaboratively with your assigned group.

In this assignment each group is tasked with completing their apparatus. Play close attention to how the apparatus is crafted - this includes how each part is laser cut (no burn marks), assembled (make sure everything aligns appropriately), how connections are made ( sloppy glue, staple, or revit joints), and the overall appearance (remove pencil marks, tape, etc).

Final Apparatus & Photo Session

Due @ 9am  | RISD Photography Dept. Photo Studio - 30 N Main St, Providence, RI, 4th floor

1. Complete your final apparatus: Play close attention to how the apparatus is crafted - this includes how each part is laser cut (no burn marks), assembled (make sure everything aligns appropriately), how connections are made ( sloppy glue, staple, or revit joints), and the overall appearance (remove pencil marks, tape, etc).

2. Bring your final apparatus and any detail and prototype models you want photographed.

3. Choose 1 (or 2) models for each group. Models should wear black (or dark gray)  shirt, pants, and socks.  Make sure anything you wear does not interfere with your apparatus or cover it in any way.

4. A link with photos will be shared after all photos have been shared.
