Student 2, 3-D Design: Range of Approaches (Breadth)

Score (on a 6-point scale)

4

Rationale for Score

In this section:

  • The work shows good application of 3-D design principles to an acceptable range of design problems: repetition (images 1, 4, and 8), proportion/scale (image 2), unity (images 1, 2, 6, and 8) and balance (images 1, 2, 7, and 8).
  • The work shows a variety of intentions (installation, figurative, whimsy, geometric forms, and nature) and approaches (additive/subtractive processes, casting, fabrication), although ideas and technical aspects do not always work together (images 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8).
  • The work displays some confidence in use of materials (images 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, and 8), although, evocative or engaging qualities are not always present.
  • The work demonstrates good technical competence and use of materials. Technical aspects and articulation of ideas do not always work together in the craftsmanship and exploration of dynamic three-dimensional space (images 4, 5, 7, and 8).
