Noy And Angela
Labyrinth at Scale
Using scale and mirroring as primary modes of experimentation, we looked at our combined scans from assignment 01 and attempted to combine their contexts to create a new framework for our model. Noy’s scans of a mousetrap and household objects told two stories in parallel, one of a cozy living space at the human scale and another of a death trap at the mouse scale. Continuing this narrative, we zoomed out and played with the scans on an architectural scale to mimic the dangerous feeling of existing in an entrapment. We manipulated the mousetrap’s snap mechanism into a column by mirroring, extruding, and twisting. Angela’s original scan of a light nook on Gund Hall is an element on a mouse scale which becomes an occupiable space when enlarged. Following manipulation, the model takes a mouse’s taste for revenge and acts as a labyrinth for humans. It is ephemeral in its precarious structure, like that of the original mouse trap, waiting to be activated.
