Starting with a simple knot in a piece of string, the form and shape of the knot were carried through a series of iterations spanning a wide variety of material and construction techniques. These techniques helped to identify multiple attributes of the form, ranging from its delicacy as a wire model to its volume as a massing model, culminating in a final “eggcrate” model technique, highlighting positive and negative space. The purpose of this exercise, in addition to strengthening skills in craft and model making, was to make space apparent and introduce it as part of the figure itself. These methods of construction allow the viewer to have an infinite number of experiences with the models, depending on the angle in which the models are viewed.
