Freehand Monochrome Drawings
Date: July 2011 - Present
These pieces are the most recent works I did outside of class. I'll constantly update this section with my latest works.
Freehand monochrome drawing is my favorite drawing technique. I enjoyed building perspective, dimension, and texture by using a simple tool, such as pencil or ballpoint pen. In my freetime, I enjoy going outside and drawing from nature. Sometimes, I also sketch from things that look cool for me.
Vignettes of Cardiology Workflow
In the final project, I decided to sketch out cardiology staff's workflow and key research findings to communicate with the audience for my healthcare final presentation.
The audience of these pieces are the people who have no clear idea of the cardiology environment and staff's workflow. The sketches of modalities and staff's portraits provide a big picture of cardiology department. The visualizations for case studies are designed to help audience quickly understand the complicated workflows and unfamiliar context.
Based on the feedback from audience, this set of sketches communicated with target audience quite successfully on the final capstone project presentation. The original pieces were shown to public on the semester final show of "Methodology of Visualization".
Developing Form and Meaning
Date: March 2011 - April 2011
Developing form and meaning involves careful consideration of order, detail, and layout to convey a clear message of function and interaction. In this assignment, we were asked to sketch a container that could be opened, then diagram the procedure for opening the container and accessing its goods.
In this piece, I show someone using a pill container which has a spilt inside, filling and retrieving pills. The development process involved brainstorming form, developing composition, diagramming sequence, photographing my own hands holding a model object, and color rendering the refined concept.
Expression of Abstraction through Technique
Date: Jan 2011 - Feb 2011
In this assignment, I learnt how to establish concrete concepts of abstraction (thinking, doing, and making) with visual and verbal story telling skills.
After exploring the use of line vocabulary, composition, balance, tension, and organization, I experimented with these abstract forms to create pieces of expressing movement, rhythm, space, matter, and light.
