JIIN YOON & SIYOUNG YANG
Drawnscape is a collaboration project between Jiin Yoon(- Object Designer) and Siyoung Yang(Conceptual Designer). Through various material experiments, Drawnscape explores different ways of machine techniques and creates a new visual methodology combined with hands-on practice.
A collection of steel objects and garments visualizes 2D silhouettes into 3D objects by adopting Jiin Yoon’s metal drawing technique. Handling a plasma cutter as a pencil, she found multiple capabilities of the machine drawing. A plasma cutter is designed to cut through electrically conductive materials with a jet of hot plasma. But Jiin explored multiple capabilities of the machine: etching, bending, welding, and hardening the material with it, in order to shape and colour the steel plates. Being able to draw steel objects adds an expressive dimension to traditional metal sculpting.
With her expressive visual drawing patterns, Siyoung worked with conceptual garments and installation which shows how the metal drawing technique brings visual gradient to the body and space. Through the act of reinterpretation with digitally scanned texture, she emphasizes imperfect forms, functions, styles, and reconstructs them into her own symbolic identity. Drawnscape addresses the interrelationships between tool and experience while trying to develop hand drawing techniques to create a new tactile visual experience.
Drawnscape addresses the interrelationships between tool and experience while attempting to develop hand drawing techniques to create a new tactile visual experience. Under the theme of breaking patterns, we explore the possibilities of breaking boundaries between medium and materials.
