If you have been reading our Tales from the Tinkering Table you are aware that we have been puzzling over how to get some three-dimensional thinking introduced into our two-dimensional world.
This week, we literally borrowed a few pages from the book, A Visual Language, by David Cohen and Scott Anderson, in order to raise the paper off of the table. The authors are makers and teachers who share their instructional philosophy via a series of lessons and through examples of work from various artists.
A series of simple lines and shapes on the page can be transformed into three-dimensional spaces with some scissors and an X-Acto knife. We tried it out and left some instructions and models on the Tinkering Table to see what inspiration these might offer to our next visitors. We’ll keep you posted!
