I am yingxi Ji and originally come from China. Currently a senior graphic design major student, graduating from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in the spring of 2017. my work is versatile, utilizing print, web and multimedia, as well as more experimental photographic design elements. Besides designing, I am super into furniture and industrial design. I love to make graphic shapes turn into 3D. I am submitting two projects I have done for my digital fabrication class. I modeled both of them in form Z and digitally fabricated. I experimented how to make organic shapes in Form Z and then I was thinking the organic shapes I created really looks like traditional chinese window pattern. So I used this elements created a little desk. This 'Twisted Vase' might be one of my favorite projects I have done. I like the idea of having two shapes together and when the vase was turning around, the shapes looks slightly different from different angels. -'Twisted Vase' was printed by two different progress. the black frame part was generated by CNC and hand finished wood. The inner twisted part used gypsum printer 3d systems.
