THOUGHT PROCESS:A Collection of material from the NYIT Students of Architecture, Design and Fine Art
The NYIT students of Architecture, Design and Fine Art began their projects with drawings about their ideas; be it the water flow systems in Red Hook, observing the devastation in Sandy’s wake, designing modular furniture for a “green zone”, or inventing cubist-style forms that morph into everyday objects depicted in the murals.
The architecture and design drawings are made with graphite, markers, ink, auto cad and photo shop mostly done on vellum. Complementing the drawings are conceptual and finished models, made with Lucite, illustration board and wood. What is interesting to see are the pieces of laser cut images discarded by the students which have now been salvaged and installed in the exhibition.
The Fine Arts students began their process by drawing an object of their choice to show their ability to depict observed reality. The instructor enlarged those drawings and collaged parts of them together to create one composite image. A grid was imposed on it to form rectangular segments. The students collaborated by enlarging each grid into panels which were pieced together to complete the three murals.
The students included in the exhibition are:
