from potemkin to vertigo

January 16, 2010

The term ‘vertigo’ refers to the dizziness cause by graphic design. Nevertheless, it reminds me of Escher. Some of his famous work is playing between 2D & 3D, graphical shap transformation, and perspective. I really appriciate such concepts and want to reflect on my project.

Once I went to a speach about Escher, and was introduced about ‘the droste effect.’Such concept as ‘theoretically endless strech’, which is also a kind of vertigo to me, could be found in many products.

Back to the 5*5*5 box. On the one hand, it has become a stage in last step. On the other hand hand, the exhibition room still resist inside. To combine these two function together,my idea is to use the support from paper-relief effect in order to combine the real stage with background curtain.
