Unit Four Website Has Moved!

Bartlett Unit Four has moved its website to a new location, to better build and display an archive of work and approaches. Please redirect your browser to www.unit-four.net for the new blog location, news and student work.

Belated photos/insights from the LA field trip. 1st Update – Unit 4 visited Bryan Cantley at Fullerton Uni, to get an insight into the drawing practice and design research that he produces. Bryan very generously laid out and took us through an archive of his work, speaking at length on a number of projects. All photos courtesy of CSUF / Matthew Gush / Bryan Cantley.

Many thanks to Bryan for being such a hospitable host!


Christopher Malin produced this video by using ‘image stacking’ software and the archive of photos taken from the International Space Station. Using software called StarStaX he creates landscapes of light and spaces conjured through a digital photographic process. The video becomes a strange landscape of stationary-movement.

By combining the software designed for star-trail imagery with other light sources, curious ephemeral architectural effects might be achieved such as this photo by flickr user Ningaloo:

An article in Wired details how visitors to a special event at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum used software which can interpolate standard photographs into printable 3d models.

Using Autodesk 123D, through uploading photographs from multiple angles, one can compose a 3D model of an object.

The application can even be used on phones and iPads in order to capture imagery which is then constructed into 3D to be printed, rendered or shared.

Christopher Moloney has built up a tumblr archive of New York city views, augmented by overlaying black and white prints of movies that were shot at the exact location.
