I had a few hours free today for a little more environment design. The Overture! It is still to be decided about what this space should be. We know some details, but these push in a few different directions. A potential notion is that this space exhibits the same structure as musical notation paper. That it is sharp, rigid and cubist, expressive of the paper that music is written on. In this way, it also would represent the gateway for music to pass through. An alternative is perhaps something more fluid and of sound. In the first few examples, this is explored through upward curves and free flowing lines. An interesting alternative perhaps.
Just chipping away a little further. Let me know if anything stands out or a particular direction seems up for exploration. More soon!
Hey Jordan - I think you're right about the more fluid lines expressing musicality. The ones that are singing out to me are 1 and 4 on the 'thumbnails on black' page. I like the floating central globe too - and if that globe was very simply to be surfaced with the blank staves of musical notation paper running around it in a series of bold stripes, I think that would speak to a world of as yet unwritten music - music in-potentia. I like the business and layering of No 4 - it does feel as if you could happily drop the Guggenheim reference in 1 into the distant background of 4 to good effect?ReplyDelete
