Different angles make a difference

Dr. Suppata Ponboon

Introduction

  Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly
discovered coronavirus. It is mainly transmitted among person through droplets when the infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets flow in the air for a certain distance, and quickly drop on the ground. Social distance or physical distance is an intervention during COVID-19. By increasing the physical space between people, it is likely to reduce spreading illness. It creates the new normal for a living since Covid-19 started.

This artwork interprets how social distancing impact to our society and raise awareness for the new normal living.

Due to unavailability of COVID-19 vaccine at the moment, one of non-
pharmaceutical measure to prevent the virus is social distancing. The facts below are considered.

– Facing different angle
– Keeping space among people
– Wearing face mask to protect from breathing in airborne virus

From above facts, the artwork was created by applying ovals and circles to simplify
people wearing a face mask, standing or walking on the top view. The artwork consists with 360 ovals, or 360 people, rotated in different 360 degrees. Each oval has its own angle which isn’t repeat any others and has their own safe spacing boundary as same as the way how to keep social distancing.

COVID-19 is a global issue in five continents. Therefore, this artwork was created
with five colors, blue yellow black green and red, to represent diversity for people from all five continents in this world. These five colors’ tone were inspired from the Olympic Ring’s color in 2020 in order to honor the Olympic Game which should held in this year. All in all, the elements were arranged to appear to be moving like the spreading virus.

In the current world without COVID-19 vaccine, people need to protect themselves from infecting the virus from others. Likewise, the infected patients need to avoid themselves for not to spreading the virus to the others. Living in distance with different normal will help the mankind keeping their journey. It can make a difference.

Introduction

Reading human thoughts is a complex matter when we look at someone that we
cannot use ourselves or my experience to make decisions because of the experiences are different. Because people come from many directions many of reasons in their own way it also enhancing the appearance, interior, concealment and distortion of the true self.

we meet a lot of people we do not know what the people has encountered until we get to see somebody’s true colors. Therefore we cannot judge people from the outside. Because of your real characters anyone don’t know what he be done that many times we judge others for their actions only once which we may look at only one side and then decide.

The reasons why people judge anyone from outside because most people use the unconscious mind and instincts to consider first to judge more than using consciousness judgment is the reasoning.
Therefore, the artist creates works of art to convey ideas through works of digital art by using 3D modeling techniques to reflect people’s views based on cause and effect.

Objectives Aims or Purposes

To reflect don’t just look at people from the outside because there are many things that

Introduction

  This research project focuses on the physical development of visual artworks. Through
research methods to search for patterns or new artistic language as a creative work. The content of the work in the project is to aim at opening up the perspective of awareness and understanding of people. Upon looking at the social issues of adolescents that are known as rash/berserk youths “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoi” through entertainment activities with body movements in the form of dancing. Looking at issues as marginalized people with perception through this creative work wherein is considered as a tool to communicate with people in the society to stimulate their minds to review from various perspectives.

The perception of information through a database of various types of platforms via
digital media does not only responsible for awareness and understanding but can also reproduce the information received and endlessly relay to others. Therefore, the fact-finding process is very important and necessary for understanding various information that poured in quickly. One of the major effects of information recognition through modern social media is the expression of opinions which everyone can express freely. For this incidence, if commenters are aware of the various perspectives and do not lead themselves into the situation that is a part of the problem thus the “Hate Speech Communication” will not occur. If people judge others through memories and criticize the image and activities without understanding and do not accept the differences through the form of satirical and mocked language via social media with one’s own prejudice, it may result in commenters being a part of creating conflicts

The Royal Institute has published a new word “Dek Vant” in dictionary and defined its meaning as “teenage boys who like to speed up the motorcycle to make a loud noise” which comes from the sound of a modified motorcycle exhaust pipe including the accelerating sound caused by the engine while trying to escape the police. And has given the definition of “Dek Skoy” as teenage girls who paddle the boy’s motorcycle in caressing manners. If talking about “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy”, we often hear negative news both on television and social media such as riding motorcycles at high speed which created noise pollution and seized public roads for speed racing. This caused troubles to people who travelled on public ways and in combination with other negative issues, these problems have been existed in Thai society for a long time. Through the memories of the project creator, about 25 years ago (1994) every Saturday and Sunday from 24.00 hrs. in Bangkok capital city, on Vibhavadi Road from Din Daeng intersection heading to the 1st Infantry Regiment there were usually speed races competition for teenagers of those days – as we call them “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy” right now. However, presently, as time goes by, progress has taken place in society, technology as well as communications had deterred all races in the aforementioned area as used to be in the past. But these issues has not disappeared from the Thai society just shuffled from Bangkok to the perimeter areas such as Chonburi, Samut Songkhram, Pathum Thani, Chachoengsao and other provinces.

Nowadays, aside from the only speed racing culture, the entertainment activities of “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy” have been developed in a well-organized manner. There are beautiful car contest, models contest including transgender. They also organized a concert to participate in the activities held. This change has been adjusted to suit the tastes of city people to the margins. The entertainment of these youths is flowing and changing according to the social context and the surroundings of that perimeter. In addition, they try to establish the scope of their entertainment activities under the terms of the law. If taking a glance at specific characteristics of the activities that entertain “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy” such as speed racing on the racetrack (in the event that a request to use the area is legal), partaking music and the expression of taste through their costumes, it could be seen that the basic entertainment of this group of teens does not differ from general people. Nonetheless, with the technology of social media that comes into contact with people’s lives has rendered information and news to spread rapidly including news about activities of “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy”. The image and entertainment activities of “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy” have been expanded and reproduced without limits. We cannot deny that these activities are considered as marginal cultural products of Thai society. But by looking through the field of images of people through social media, the audience is like a god who is ready to judge his sight and arouse criticisms both through their own perspectives and many people conform to the mainstream people who comment. By attitudes of the watchers, the arisen problem is considered as the freedom of expression through bias. “The teens that are being watched” are the staid targets of criticism both in terms of image and activity. People who Looked through prejudice and criticized by their own feelings that what they had seen were wrong and different from themselves, therefore, the onlookers assumed that they had the power to be ready to judge others. This creative work is the achievement of events that occurred in the social media world in the culture of looking at adolescents, which are called ”Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy” the are reinterpreted through physical manipulation and time in the image area to present a view of possibilities from the chaotic situation in the digital media era for the audience to confront, watch and incur new interpretations with their own experiences. Looking at and understanding this difference the researcher hopes to stimulate the common sense of seeing the differences of humans living together in society. Freedom of the bodies of “Dek Vant” and “Dek Skoy” through the melodies of dance in the ”Heartbeat” series in the creative research project of (Perception of visual culture – through the entertainment activities of subculture street racing) tend to be a tool to ask questions to people’s perceptions and their understanding of things that are going on in society.

The process that occurs in the creation of a series. “Heartbeat, 2020”. It is a result of
Research Field. Data obtained from in-depth interviews In order to understand issues related to visual culture. In looking at the entertainment activities of the entertainment activities of subculture street racing with discernment. Do not use precepts or prior understanding in judging behavior. The result of data synthesis Understanding of issues. Developing to the visual image of Video Installation.

Figure-ground: the transformation of negative and positive space

Mr. Waris Sinsuebpol

Introduction

Architecture and environment play an opposite role in most situations. Sometimes, they are not connected and leave a big gap between them. Quite recently, architects and designers have been aware of this matter and tried to suggest the broad ideas over this issue to tighten that “gap”.

This project is one to explore how to deal with this subject. It fundamentally starts with the study of the building site through the figures and ground method. After analyzing the context, the process went on to the design strategy which is to consider the objects and the space as one, meaning that it is not only the usable space to be considered, but also all the trees in the area. Solid and void theory was correspondingly considered to use in the design process when it comes to the 3-dimensional design, to define shape and threshold between in and out (a positive space). In practical terms, materials like glass and reflective ceiling are used to make the building become as boundaryless as possible to visually connect with the nature and make the architecture itself expressively invisible.

At the end of the process, this project could underpin the idea that the architecture is part of the nature and it doesn’t have to be stand out on itself. Instead, while it is built to be practically used, it could also be created to define and value the context around it at the same time.

The project started by diagrammatically analyzing the site using figures and ground method as aforementioned. A figure can be described as object, form, element, or positive shape, while ground is seen as space (Frederick 2007). This process is to see the relationship between objects; which in this case are trees, existing buildings, covered walkway, and the space in-between. Once all the factors had been plotted, the probabilities of how to utilize the space were looked through and finally selected to develop further.

According to Frederick (2007), the space will be called negative space when it’s unshaped after the placement of figures, but when it has a shape, it would be called a positive space. In the contrary, it could be arguably said that the space in between those figures with no shape is not always defined as a negative space. On the other hand, with the design process, some of those objects could be merged into that negative space and become shaped. As the result, this could create a ‘space within space’ and can be seen as one big positive space to work on.

After the positive space being carried out, the process continued to define the threshold between in and out. In basic design theory, it could be defined in many ways by points, lines, planes, etc. (Frederick 2007); which those could also mean both visible and invisible elements. The solid and void theory were then usedto study in 3-dimentional design along with the 2D space planning, in order to shape the flow of the positive space.

The curvy triangular shape was created after the shape of the space. These curves have become walls which create the boundary of the building. Considering that the triangle usually leaves the feeling of a deadend in its sharp corner, which could have a feeling like being trapped and cut out of the environment. Nevertheless, to solve that issue, instead of having those 2 lines joined together as a corner, they were considered as two different planes going in the direction to their coordinate but then stopped before the 5 collision leaving a gap between them to create the sense of continuity to the outside. Once all those walls had been put in its place, the glass material then played their important role to fill up those gaps in order to achieve a see-through effect to visually connect to the nature.

Moreover, apart from the wall planes, according to Ching (2015), the overhead and the base plane will too be considered to complete its volume, which in this project means ceiling and floor. It can be clearly seen that they are in a big area and very noticeable. Subsequently, the reflective material is selected to apply on the ceiling in order to blur the existence of it. Also, the idea behind the floor material was to blend in with context. The printed vinyl floor in green pattern was then designed to metaphorically imply the environment.

Besides the conceptual design, another important thing in architecture is how people inhabit the building because the actual space itself could stimulate people’s behavior as well as manipulate their feeling. So, after studying through behavior of the users, all the functions were then considered and correspondingly put in place where they appropriate. Different types of seating in this project mean different purposes and feels, whether to sit in groups, alone, or for meeting, chilling, etc., the type and size of the furniture will have to correspond to it.

In conclusion, this project could expectedly become another experimental project to prove one of the aspects of architecture that; the architecture is arguably not created to be only neither functionally used nor a monumental objects, it could also define the value of the environment around them as well as could be a medium to tighten the gap between people and the nature.

Objectives Aims or Purposes

1. To study the relationship between figures and ground (space and objects) and apply to this design project using this method to compromise the environment with architecture without directly disturbing it.
2. To learn how to design architecture with an environmental-friendly process.
3. To study and experiment the probabilities of materials which will be used in the project as well
as construction and installation methods.

Introduction

Amid the crisis of COVID-19 affect the adaptation of human life completely that
adaptation for this survival needing knowledge and understanding awareness of life and consider the effect on people around more as a tool to fight against the spread of the threat Corona virus with day by day until the spread of the virus is gone.

Adaptation to survive in an epidemic situation in addition to having to take care of one’s own hygiene and also must have social spacing or even using a 14-day detention system for people who are at risk of getting close to the infected person that is a guideline to reduce the spread of the virus which this guideline depends on the awareness of each an individual become the gab of vulnerable until spread of the virus endlessly. But if everyone cooperates having more sympathy for others will help reduce the problem faster until the situation is normal soon.

Illustration design that illustrates daily life from the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic. Pencils sketch on paper line with a black ink pen then imported into the computer customization vector.

Adaptation to survive in an epidemic situation in addition to having to take care of one’s

Vishnunad

Social distancing and the impact on the environment

Mr. Vishnunad Katanyuthaveethip

Introduction

Coronaviruses are a group of related RNA viruses. In humans, these viruses cause respiratory tract infections that can range from mild to lethal. Mild illnesses include some cases of the common cold, while varieties that are more lethal can cause SARS, MERS, and COVID -19. There are as yet no vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.

The name “coronavirus” is derived from Latin “corona” mean “crown” or “wreath”, itself a borrowing from Greek “garland, wreath”. The word was first used in print in 1968 by an informal group of virologists in the journal Nature to designate the new family of viruses.

Coronaviruses were first discovered in the 1930s. Human coronaviruses were discovered in the 1960s. In December 2019, a pneumonia outbreak was reported in Wuhan, China. As of 19 May 2020, there have been at least 322,683 confirmed deaths and more than 4,889,287 confirmed cases in the coronavirus pneumonia pandemic.

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus, by avoid close contact with anyone who is sick and maintain 6 feet between the people. Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings. Keeping space with other people or social distancing is one of the best tools to avoid this virus and slowing its spread locally and across the country and the world.

Due to the social distancing, that is to be aware of making gap among people, so that is how the people disappeared. Looking at the optimism, the disappearance of people on empty streets, canals and abandoned seas is the opportunity of nature to recover.

Positive impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing how the Earth moves. The Earth
is healing during human lockdown, the air and water pollution is clearing. It seem like Coronavirus is cure while human is disease. As humans lockdown themselves, Earth smiles again.

Introduction

Photography Baan Nor Lae: At borderless area Baan Nor Lae, there is ethnic groups
call as Da-ra-ang is located on the Thai-Myanmar border. Road was cut through the village as a frontier line. Livelihood of villager mostly rely on agriculture system, which tied to Doi Ang Khang Royal project, sometime they gone out of the village for selling local goods in Myanmar. Thoughts and beliefs of the community relate to Buddhism, but still practice in the way of ancestors, which can be observed from “Sao Jai Baan” or called by Da-ra-ang as “Hor Thur” reflected the area of village’s mental center.

Documentary Photos in this set have not study in-depth detail. But the beginning of the installation in order to record and collaborate to be publish and acknowledge the existence of this ethic community in Thai state area.

The author has traveled to the community area twice, with desire to collect this photography documentary. Each time spends 3-4 days in the area collecting ethnographic field work with participatory observation, formal and informal interview, and film recording. In case, to learn and understand the lives of people in the community, this will include researcher and key informations gather in the concept of “spatialisation”. This concept used as important tool to study “area” and understanding the ethic community of Da-ra-ang village.

Working on this photography documentary set, the creator found out that ethnic community areas are able to adapt with the nation state occupied. The road cuts through village as border spilt Thai – Myanmar state but cannot deprive them apart. This is partly, because of cultural connect them together, whether language, kindred, belief in Buddhism and ghosts, and the way of live. All the things were mention might not last long because today their life style is beginning to be tied with capitalism, especially in the form of contact farming starting infiltrated into their livelihood.
