Cube Study


Iowa State University

Professor James Spiller




Within the limitations of a 6” cube, manipulations of a single material made a set of phenomenological experiences apparent. These experiences, stemming from preliminary moiré patterns, led to an understanding of depth and perception, which informed further investigations of removing interior mass from the overall volume. Constantly questioning our perceptual capabilities, this series of studies based in tactile model making also included a series of abstract and representative drawings. This brief investigation serves as an understanding of how manipulations in basic materials can create complex phenomenological experiences.
