|week 4: blocks #19 - 24|
Truthfully, I'm feeling a little worn out, but it's ok because I did it (!) - I've carved more blocks in the last month than in the previous 11 months combined.
|I especially life this one :)|
|I'm getting more strategic with my tracery - because this is a symmetric shape, |
it can be a right corner, a left corner, or a gable depending how it's rotated ;)
|You might be thinking - Wait, isn't that from last week?|
|I also started scanning the blocks before I start carving so that I have a digital copy of the drawings|
I feel like I was right about needing the mini project to develop a personalized algorithm for making new blocks. On the one hand - I can't wait to start playing with these! I've been thinking of the many ways to make variations (subtracting parts, layering, rotating, rearranging, and recombining...) On the other hand - I feel like these are just the start, and there are so many more things I want to add.
In that spirit, I'm not quite sure I'm completely done with the mini-project...24 is a beautiful number, but it's a beautiful number as a multiple, whereas 25 is a beautiful number as a fractional part...and I feel like that's what the mini project is, the start of a larger archive of blocks (also a month is 4.25 weeks, not 4), so I feel justified in thinking that the mini-project needs one more block...
