Real Time Captures of Developed Environment

Bridge in Yosemite Valley, California. Sprouting out from a common birth place, learning curves lead to the heights of power atop the mountains.

Glass studio for Miranda Kerr's modelling business where she can practice her catwalk for all to see.

Miranda Kerr's elevator floats down from her life in a bubble to the elevated meeting spot. The red balloon indicates where the meeting is and is a tool for communication. Click for further information about THE MEETING SPOT and THE TABLE AND CHAIRS.

Helen Keller's studio where she can practice her speeches. The triangular funnel amplifies the sound out of the inner pyramid. The sound then can travel down the arch to the podium at the bottom of the valley.

Riding Helen Keller's elevator. Enclosed within the bridge for safety she requires no view. The elevator slots into her studio and has safety walls so she can find her way in and out of the elevator to the studio. The elevator may be slid back into the arch tunnel so she can access the plateau where her studio is situated.

Real Time Videos of the Elevators in action

Helen Keller's elevator - a bit bumpy due to multiple coordinates to move through the curve, easement and speed was adjusted to give the smoothest ride possible.

Miranda Kerr's elevator - unable to capture the full sequence in the given time frame as again the speed was slowed to give a smoother ride following the curved arch.

Textures used in model

Reaction 2 - The bridge

The bridge sprouts up out of the foundational base (the beginning of life) as a 'reaction' resulting in the two power leaders, Keller and Kerr.

Force 4 - The Podium

This is the meeting point, where all the forces meet, the powerful people and the bridge that holds them up. All exert pressure on the podium.

Scalar 2 - Helen Keller's Studio

Her power accelerated as she increased her skills from being a deaf mute.

Inertia 2 - Helen Keller's Elevator

This slides down inside the bridge keeping it's passengers safe.

Rotaional 3 -Miranda Kerr's Studio

This swirls and turns as she would when practising her catwalk in her studio.

Rotational 2 - Miranda Kerr's Elevator

The bubble can freely rotate as it floats down to 'earth'.

The World - The globe chairs

Keller and Kerr 'sit' on the world influencing all with their power.

The Elevators and Dining Table

Miranda Kerr's elevator is to the right. She floats down to the meeting place in a bubble, reflective of her glamorous yet out of touch/surreal lifestyle which is far from ordinary. The red balloon indicates to her where the meeting is to be held.

Helen Keller's elevator is hidden from front view and is within the bridge cavity. This is to protect her from falling from her elevator and is regarded as a very safe way for her at arrive at the meeting place. She does not need a view from her ride. The red balloon is a tool for communication for Helen.

Both clients arrive at the meeting point from the sides of the podium, as if on a stage with side entrances. The podium acts to elevate them enough off the ground to separate them from ground level to signify their power and provide a sense of occasion. They have equal and opposing power types and so they arrive from opposite sides of the podium. The table and chairs are simple, they do not need to be large to reflect their power, both women are forward thinking and do not have an authorative approach to power which might require a large table. The table is also left bare and neutral so that their ideas may be placed there in their purity without external influences. Further explanation is found under The Table.

The Table

The meeting point is an amalgamation of Keller and Kerr's individuality which is reflected in their studios. The chairs are spheres, these represent the world and when they sit on them it conjures up the influence and power they hold over people. The chairs are also useful to them as they both work extremely hard and long hours to maintain that power. Miranda can use hers as an exercise ball whilst for Helen it will help her develop her balance, most people with hearing loss experience some difficulties with balance. The table is the upturned pyramid, a sign of strength and longevity. The three sided triangle is representative of religion and spirituality, a symbol of the holy trinity within christianity. Helen is very religious and this will influence the way she uses her power, Miranda is more spiritual but still seeks this in maintaining her influence. The balloon is a symbol of communication, for Miranda it helps her know where the meeting is as she is usually led like a puppet around the world modelling and for Helen it is a tool (Sir Alexander Ewing was very influential in the early 20th century in teaching the deaf to speak, one method used was feeling the vibrations of sound on the balloon's surface and then replicating it). This is pertinent as Miranda may not wish to have Helen's hands ruining her makeup as she feels her face for the shapes and vibrations of speech.
