Infinity Knot



This warm-up exercise focused on concept, fabrication techniques, and innovative understandings of spatial formation through the analysis of a knot. The figure eight knot begins with a double strand, diverges, loops twice, and converges to finish as a double strand again. I first explored this process positively, and then in the space positive, making the void solid. I used color, grain, directionality, and transparency in different forms to make these ideas apparent. I explored cross-sectional prototyping, massing models, and hybrid models.
