Yesterday, my 3D Design students exhibited their wabi-sabi humble silly ambitious cammouflage projects.  Here was the assignement:

- With camera and/or sketchbook in hand, tour every accessible area of Knob View Hall.  Consider the building's architectural features (high, low, eye-level).  Do not overlook any material or spatial configuration (glass, brick, drywall, linoleum, windows, stairwells, elevators, doorways, etc.).

- Select an area of the building proportionate to your own body and consider how you might construct a wearable sculpture that will "disappear" you within your chosen area.  In other words, design camouflage meant to be worn in your chosen area of Knob View Hall.

- As you consider potential architectural niches, also consider your own body and how you will position yourself in that niche.  Will you lie down, stand up, face outwards?  Does part of your body "hide" against a wall and another part against the floor or a doorframe?

Some of the results:

Attention to details:

These really are amazing Adrienne. I've never seen Knobview Hall look so interesting.

Hey, thanks! They dedicated themselves, I'd say.
