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

Score (on a 6-point scale)

6

Rationale for Score

The work in this section demonstrates:

  • An excellent application of 3-D design principles to a broad range of design problems. Examples include emphasis and occupied/unoccupied space in image 1; balance in image 2; unity and variety in image 3; repetition, unity, variety and proportion in image 4; contrast in image 5; rhythm in image 6; interesting scale relationships in image 7; and unity and variety in image 8.
  • A variety of innovative ideas. Using plastic parts and wire to form a mounted animal head (image 15), cast resin facial features in combination with a faux-plant form (image 9), and placing a ceramic dog inside an aquarium (image 1) all show an unexpected and risk-taking range of ideas.
  • A broad range of intentions and approaches. The student has worked with folding paper to construct a multi-faceted, wearable form (image 7); stitched fabric and foam core to create a playful narrative (image 5); ceramic hand-building and glazing (image 3); as well as the above-mentioned processes.
  • The work is confident and evocative. Images 1, 3 and 11 show particular confidence. The student has approached these works with a focused purpose, and they evoke strong responses in the viewer.
  • Technical excellence. Working with ceramics, fabrics, paper, wire and other materials, the student has shown an ability to combine materials and arrange space with a high level of accomplishment.
