COMMENDATION

MATTHEW BENNETT

Re-drawing Lake George University of Sydney

Tutors: Catherine Lassen, Andrew Burges

This piece of work appealed to the judging panel for the beauty of its imagery and its sheer daring.This student uses a distinctive drawing technique to penetrate possible architectural meanings and solutions for the 150 sq km bed of Lake George in Australia.Using the work of artist Rosalie Gascoigne as an imaginative clue, this student replicates this drawing style to convey a wide range of data-sets and arrive at a new topology for the lake.Although criticised for veering a little too close to the realm of pure graphic design, the judges admired the power of suggestion implicit in the work.The strength of the work resided in the 'emptiness'and 'lightness'of the drawing studies.

'Not entirely understandable, but somehow persuasive and suggestive' Ben van Berkel
