Boundaries: physical model making

In order to enhance the experiences of the viewers I have decided to recreate the balconies in 4D. I absolutely love modelling so this is work and fun put together. I like to recreate it in a very realistic way (not to realistic as I need to bear time in mind).

I enjoy recreating digital props but the actual physical prop is way more engaging. Also this is a physical one so people can touch it and look closely but most importantly the prop of the idea/concept we had can be presented so as viewer can better visualise what it may look like in real life.

Have gone to 4D shop and absolutely love it there. I am a huge fun of miniatures too so it was fun. All together I needed exactly 400 tiny bricks.

All the bricks have been put toter in a professional brick layering way using some grout ha.

Tiles for the roof made from foam and painted with acrylics to give it that old look.

I will also use the trees I made for my previous project

I have made a pavement from clay which I have then added texture to it with various tools. After drying I have painted it grey.

Planning was the key as I needed to make sure I put things on in a correct order and don’t leave anything behind.
