Cornucopia

Erin Dela Cruz - Cornucopia

SEE PROJECT

The story of the demigod Heracles (also known as Hercules) and Achelous began as they fought over the maiden, Deianira.

As they fought, the river god Achelous, transformed into a snake, then into a bull. It was then Heracles cut off his horn and defeated Achelous.

The nymphs of Achelous’ river turned his horn into the cornucopia, filled with fruits and flowers.

The project: Volume for You, where students create an abstract volume (made from foam-core) that is derived from the orthographic drawings created in Assignment 2B (drawings which capture two abstract models, both representing 'Who They Are' -an interpretation of their name, and the translation of a scene/object/emotion from a dream). Students then create an A1 poster which represents their volume. The poster features the following components: plan and elevation, section with one-point perspective, two-point perspective exterior view, axonometric (plan-oblique) drawing, collage using Adobe Photoshop showing atmosphere.

The course was made possible through the teaching assistance of Jesse Zilm (tutor), Madeline Nolan (demonstrator) and Tom Borgas (guest lecturer).
