Amanda, visually these models are elegant and complex. A set of diagrams showing the process of how each model is unique from the last, maybe even breaking down your thoughts as to how you approached each cube and assembled it would be helpful for the viewer. Your overall composition is clean and easy to follow.

very nice presentation! I agree with Dana this presentation could really be helped with some process diagrams to really help see where you have come from. I do have one question, in regards to where these pieces of wood attach to the frame. Is there a reason as to why the attach the way they do? Maybe that could be another departure for exploration. Otherwise well done!

An interesting experiment to learn more about the characteristics and limitations of a material.

I agree that a set of diagrams showing how the change of form results in a change in performance would complete this project.

In some pictures I got different glimpses of different shapes when you changed the camera angle. You could further your investigation by photographing these in plan, elevation(s) and multiple perspectives to discover new conclusions.

It would be nice to try and relate your models to actual wood or other materials. Tensile strength could be a variable to determine if those materials could be used to create what you show in your models and how the scale of the material could change related to the integrity of the material.

This would be a big selling point for you in the job market if you are interested in material studies.

your models look flawless but I was I really liked the shadows that were casted.

the modeling is beautiful, and the study is intriguing, but I think the introduction of another variable perhaps in the bracing form would get you different lighting and shapes. Think outside the box! get it? they were held in boxes :)

Interesting topic, I liked approach you took at a micro level scale. The curve seems like a very powerful element. An exploration of how and why the curve the role it does. Maybe if there was an overlapping comparison of each study, showing wood placement with in the cube.
