Questions

Zach Heartl


1. In regards to storyboard montages discussed in the readings, are there any examples in architecture that you can think of?  Or possibly a rhizomic level of thinking created from these montages?
2.  In the Storyboard reading what are the differences that are discussed between the “stills” section and the “the City.”  They both talk about a two sets of imagery in the frame that draws you in and another that pulls you forward, are they different ideas being conveyed?
3.  In regards to people in storyboards how might we use people in our architectural renderings the way that this reading describes it?
4. In regards to the storyboard, does there need to be an existing narrative?  (Example: the cat perspective still is biased).
5.  In regards to the Storyboard narrative being conceived separately, yet imagined together, what would be the difference to a series of postcards?
6.  In the Vidler reading when Elie Faure describes plastic art, how does this compare when considering sheffauer’s argument against plastic art?
7.  When considering these two lines of argument which do you side with and why?  Which would be more appropriate for use for us in the realm of design?
8.  In the storyboard reading when talking about graphics, they describe artist’s sketches and how they are faked.  Do you agree with this statement?
9.  In the Vidler reading, Shauffer talks about the “sixth sense of a man” as the 4th dimension of the photographic cosmos.  Can you describe this and how this might manifest itself in the world of architecture?
10.  Looking at the storyboard reading and the perspective section; if the reader is supposed to form their own narrative, then when talking about perspective is it not already written because they already picked a perspective or view point on the subject?

1. I feel that a fun house is as close to architecture, that a montage can get.

3. In renderings the use of interactive entourage is more compelling than a sillouette in a hallway.

4. I feel the beauty of a storyboard is the ability for a viewer to create his own narrative.

5. Am I right in thinking that a post card is a photograph, and not a storyboard?

6. Movement is considered by both.

7. I enjoy the thought of something being "smitten" into life.

8. The concepth of a faked sketch eludes me.

9. Toying with ones emotions through architecture is risky business, but I like it.

10. I feel that a one-point perspective would be much more suggestive than any other type, but still a viewer is left to focus and explore on their own.
