Gravity

An observation of gravity. This is from a class that centered around a topic of our choice. I chose gravity, which turned out being difficult to visualize without obvious cues.
Here is a concise process: gathering descriptive words and definitions, poster options and the 3D piece. One of my observations from the process was how gravity is a form of hierarchy; visually, gravity creates systems based on scale, proportion and distance.

Research & word lists
Visualizations


Series of icons that represent relationships of objects through gravity.
Final 3D piece, 2x2' cube with a 1x1' cube suspended within the larger cube. 
Beads are contained within the smaller cube to represent containment.


Photography & poster

Final poster, 28x18"
Text on the image says "always already ... the present is perpetual." 
This comes from the writing of Paul Ricœur and his theory of always already.
