Design Fab Collection 2022
Connecting students to collab-create an emotive piece using sophisticated digital creation software
Theme: Sacred Time: Shmita, Shabbat, Jubilee/Freedom, and the Human Experience of Time
Participating teams will choose an aspect of time as it relates to Jewish tradition. Through advanced study/contemplation, the team will illustrate a truth about their chosen time by creating a 3D sculpture, affixed to a wooden heptagonal board provided by CIJE.
Build: Each team will create a structure that embodies and conveys this truth both from the perspective of the Judaic sources and their own personal experience.
Output: Each team will model their 3D design, as well as physically build upon the provided board.
Bringing it all together: This is a national initiative. All teams across the different participating schools will virtually meet to share their piece and receive feedback from each other as well as a panel of experts.
- All teams must have an STL file of their designed wedge:
- HS students must have an advanced CAD model, preferably Fusion 360 (i.e. not designed on Tinkercad)
- MS students may use Tinkercad or any advanced CAD modeling software
- The designed wedge needs to have at least one piece that is the output of a CAD file: 3D printing, CNC, or laser cut element. More than one component is permitted and encouraged, where possible.
- Use of electronics and computer programming to enhance the design is permitted
- A biblical or Judaic anchor source - text (word, phrase, or longer) - needs to be present on the piece
- Include a one-page description explaining the inner meaning and motivation of the piece as well as a reflection of how the digital rendition differs from the physical manifestation
- Include a one-minute video elevator pitch explaining their process of creation with footage showing 360 degrees of the piece
- Each team will submit a minimum of four (each direction and an aerial perspective) high-resolution images of their piece
- HS students will provide a photo render file of their work in Fusion. MS students may take a JPEG image of their model in Tinkercad - one of each side, including an aerial image (5 images in total)
Feedback and authentic audience:
- Mid-point Concept board pitch: teachers can schedule an (optional) zoom meeting with CIJE mentors to provide students with a chance to share their concept board and receive feedback on their theme and fabrication ideas.
- Gallery unveiling will include an expert panel with a Judaic studies scholar, an artist and a fabrication expert to discuss each piece. The panel discussion will be followed by a collaborative effort among all the participants to digitally curate the entire digital collection
Time frame: project registration form
