Score (on a 6-point scale)6
Rationale for Score
In this section:
- All the work shows an excellent application of 3-D design principles to a broad range of 3-D design problems: installation, conceptual approaches, maquettes, occupied and unoccupied spaces, nested forms, contrasting organic and geometric forms, and the readymade.
- The work clearly demonstrates original vision (images 3, 5, and 8), a variety of innovative ideas and risk taking (images 3, 4, 5, and 8), and a broad range of the elements and principles of 3D design.
- The work shows a broad range of intentions and approaches including installation (images 3 and 4), conceptual approaches (images 3, 5, and 8), maquette (image 1), occupied and unoccupied spaces (images1, 2 3, 4, 5, and 8), nested forms (image 2), contrasting organic and geometric forms (image 5), and the readymade (images 3 and 8).
- The work as a whole is confident and evocative; it engages the viewer with visual qualities of verve (images3, 5, and 8) and subtlety (images 1 and 2).
- The construction of each form is technically excellent; materials are used effectively to express complex ideas.
- The appropriation of a wide variety of materials such as folding chairs, bar clamps, classroom work tables, cardboard boxes, nylon stockings, wood molding, and a school hallway are transformed in the service of a larger personal vision.
