project 01b

January 29, 2007

The idea. Nicholso Dr has two well-planted areas, one is between the campus and Nicholson Apt and the other is along the residential area a mile north from the former. The trees are mainly live oaks. Altarnation of planted areas and non-planted areas creat the most basic rhythm. Then, mixture of varios landuses, such as residence, business office, restaurant, bush, and grass, creat the secondary rhythm. Residences tend to have some planting in front of them, but business offices and restaurants tend to have none, and instead, they have paved parking lots by concrete. Therefore, the texture and the degree of openness are different.

Animation 1 is basically made by converting project 01a into flash. Then I marked some elements and made Animation 2. Blue lines mean commercial buildings, yellow lines mean residences, and pink lines mean signs. Those markings show the mixture of various kinds of landuse and the consequent rhythm and change of openness and texture.

revision of project 01a

January 28, 2007

I revised project 01a and uploaded the file on the network. Before revising, almost all my pictures were taken parallel to the road. Then, I added the pictures perpendicular to the road, which describe how the surrounding areas of the road are. I also went to the northern part of Nicholson Dr, where I didn’t go the other day. Now my representation has become more narrative than before, I think.

I have made animation 1, basically by converting project 01a into flash. Now I’m thinking of what elements I should mark and what theme I can present…

project 01a

January 24, 2007

My assignment is Route 6 Nicholson Dr. The time was around 6 o’clock. I started from the intersection of Nicholson Dr and Brightside Dr, and rode my bike along Nicholson Dr to the end of Nicholson Apartment. I took pictures parallel to Nicholson Dr at regular intervals. Therefore, you can experience my trip along Nicholson Drive virtually.
