Recalling The Heritage Of Ancient Wreath Designs: An Exploration Of The Computation In Making

Özgan, Sibel Yasemin; Sevmen, Deniz Pastutmaz;

Artigo Completo:

The making of ancient gold wreaths is one of the unique and forgotten crafting activities, which has influenced various modern designs such as jewelries, furniture, wall decorations and ornaments. Wreath designs stand as good examples for hands-on material computation, since they are made from gold, which is known for its extraordinary durability and malleability. In this study, we try to decompose the overall rules by investigating the design development of ancient gold wreaths. The crafting activity stand as an essential attribute, which alters visual grammar rules. By decomposing the visual rules, we are able to define the relations between crafting, material properties, making techniques and visual appearance.
