Natural Landscape Modeling

Modul 1 final project by Karol Kruk & Silke Hartmann.

At the M1 final exercise Karol and Silke focused on the process of landscape modelling analyzing the erosion in the nature. This is the process by which soil and rock are removed from the Earth’s surface by natural forces such as wind or water flow, and then transported and deposited in other locations. They represent this process with two different foam models that are the interpretation of an underground and a surface erosion.

They say that there are many available alternative land use practices in order to limit erosion, for instance the terrace-building. The erosion makes possible to look at the deepness of our Earth with the different sedimentary beds. This effect is shown by using additional color on the surface. In general they followed a the three-steps milling process. First of all they milled the topography, and then painted. The last operation was milling the painted surface again.

Modul 1 final project by Enise Burcu Karaçizmeli & Wolfgang Novak

For the final work Enise and Wolfgang began working looking at several well known landscape design projects. They chose Diana’s Memorial in Hyde Park, a very poetic project of Kathryn Gustafson. Considering the two different layers that are the milled paths and the slide topography in the project they decided to use plaster and foam for their representation.
