This was a theater project that I was involved in. During this project, we researched and learned how to apply geometry elements into real life designs. Especially spirals.
Initially, I realize the spiral that is on the ionic column cap, and thought that was fascinating and attractive. Articles and documents have described that ionic column representing a female throughout Europe history. The spiral, curves and the details in the pattern were very beautiful and looked extremely impressive.
However, when I started drawing the layout I found it quite challenging. You have to follow the precise geometric laws to get the beautiful spirals, you must also test the pattern location between spirals to find their optimal and correct position. Plus it was not a surface. There are three dimensions are waiting for you. Hence, it was not easy task if you are under deadline pressure.

I was involved in a fascinating theater project where we delved into the world of geometry and its real-life applications, with a particular focus on spirals.
What initially caught my attention was the spiral design on the Ionic column cap. It was a captivating and attractive feature. I discovered that Ionic columns have historically been associated with representing femininity throughout European history. The intricate spirals, curves, and patterns on the column were exceptionally beautiful and left a lasting impression.
However, as I began the process of sketching the layout, I found it to be quite challenging. Creating these beautiful spirals required strict adherence to precise geometric principles, and finding the optimal and correct positions for the patterns between spirals was no easy task. To add to the complexity, this was not a two-dimensional surface; it involved working in three dimensions. This made the task even more challenging, particularly when facing tight deadlines.
