Title: Volumetric Drawing: The Marriage of Forced Flatness with Dimensional Objects
Creators: Smith, Sarah
Advisor: Lisbon, Laura
Issue Date: 2012-06
Abstract: Dimensional restraints limit the ability of illusionistic drawing to break beyond its barriers. As a result, I made a point of exploring how the drawn image responds when placed in a situation that involves volumetric objects. In order to highlight the changes in the drawing, I utilized highly perspectival imagery in the form of industrial architecture, and juxtaposed the voluminous drawings against flattened ones in an effort to expose the shortcomings of the illusionary picture plane. The secondary conceptual focus of the work resides around the premise of architecture as portrait, and its logical extension to the industrial building.
