3-D Design Sample 1

Section Score: 6

Rationale for Score

In this Selected Works (Quality) section:

  • A highly successful use of line, volume, repetition, occupied/unoccupied space, texture, color/light is addressed in these formal and conceptual structures.
  • All five works exhibit excellent, well-informed decision making and intention.
  • The composition of the works (works 3, 4, and 5) is original, imaginative, and inventive.
  • The work shows successful engagement with experimentation and/or risk taking in most pieces (works 3, 4, and 5).
  • The work as a whole is confident and evocative. It engages the viewer with visual qualities of expressive verve (works 3, 4, and 5) and nuanced subtlety (works 1, 2, 3, and 4).
  • Technical competence is excellent. Easily obtainable materials—classroom chairs, baseball bat, wooden sticks, thread, zipper, plaster gauze—are used expressively, and all works are constructed with precision and excellent craftsmanship.
  • Appropriated materials such as classroom chairs, circular saw blade, and an old baseball bat are clearly transformed in the service of a larger personal vision.

3-D Design Sample 2

Section Score: 4

Rationale for Score

In this Selected Works (Quality) section:

  • There is a good use of scale, line, texture, color, and form, but the application of 3-D principles is not always successful.
  • Some clear decision making and intention are evident (work 1).
  • The work shows some imaginative ideas (works 1, 2, and 4) but with uneven success.
  • Some of the work has evocative qualities that engage the viewer (works 1 and 4), though confidence is not strongly perceptible (works 2, 3, and 5).
  • The work demonstrates good technical competence and use of materials; however, works 2, 3, and 5 do not engage dynamic space.
