Parts is Parts: Dolos

Project Description

Like the Greek god of trickery and guile Dolos, our project addresses the part to whole relationship with a cunning deception which blurs the reading of the part to the overall monolithic body it composes.  Our project is composed of singular modules which are sculpted to give a reading of a component made of multiple parts when in reality the module is the only part.  As the modules aggregate to compose a larger body, the reading of the part is further blurred.  Additionally, the application of a dazzle paint camouflage pattern was intended to further conceal the part to whole relationship.  The final prototype is made of carbon fiber as a response to the desired qualities defining a monolith, qualities of seamlessness and continuity.
