Blog Post 4

The linear rythm is evident in the shelves on the interior of the display. This moves horizontally along with the kick plate and drawer. The vertical motion is displayed in the seperation of the doors and large piano hinges. There will be a diagram for this on a presentation board. The liquid fluid motion is occuring on the top edge of the display case. This is done to reflect the essence of the oval transom opening in the lobby. Since oval form can not be displayed upon the cabinetry in any suitable form on a one dimensional plane, the curve is used. The defined aedicule of the museum is now transmitted to the display case. The weatherspoon overhead shape is irregular in an oval conical form and now overhead is fluid irregularity on the defined aedicule of display. The irregularity is balanced out by offsetting the doors.
This is still dealing with the overhead of both units. However more is occuring in the motion of light and the movement of the eye. Light is reflected off the oval walls and brought down to the ground plane in the museum. This balances the space and unifies the white walls of the museum. The same is occuring in the display cabinet. The curvature of the top (light) is brought down to the ground plane through the reflection of door shelf curvature and reflected by the metallic kick plate and caster wheels. The eyes is led by the implied curve with the rhythm of stacking.

These are the affects of light upon the art museums ground plane and yet what must occur upon the ground plane with the influence of light still must be art. Therefore art must occur within the art museum. To define space adequately must be artistic minimalism. Rectangular box with fluid terminal top to occupy open space with fluid terminal top. The balance of positive space is the display case, and negative space is open floor surrounded by positve boundaries of structured walls.
