REDESIGNING THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
GRANNY SMITH IN THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS.
Following the Inter 12 Unit brief "Deep Copy" I have been using more direct and indirect ways of copying to inform my design. Starting off by thinking about the original of a copy being an ideal such as the Garden of Eden which has only been expressed through visual representation or text, I had to set up my own original to base my design on: Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights, ca. 1500, oil on wood triptych.
The forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden, the symbol of the apple has allowed me to think about wider contexts of different activities, programs and even graphical representation. My research on apples and their cultural image allowed me to think about copying as a strategy to make something more perfect than its original.
Constantly trying to develop a suitable drawing technique to merge the natural and artificial contexts found through the apple, I used the organization of the orchard through the grid, the architectural type of the greenhouse and industrial spaces to express the nature of the project.
I used the format of the triptych to synthesize all the ideas I had come across throughout the design process.
