Final two pieces before connecting them together.
For project 1 we had to pick a symbol that represents the way we are seen by society and the way we see and identify ourselves. I am a very quiet and introverted person and it takes me a while to open up to outsiders which is why I picked a shell as my symbol because I love hiding away in my own bubble. For the project we had to use linear materials to create our symbol in 3D. I choose to use wood because I never worked with it before and it had a quality and feel to it that I really enjoyed. I first started by listing words and creating my mood board. After I decided what my symbol was I started making quick mock ups using cardboard, aluminum foil, wire, foam and thread. Once I had an idea of how I wanted it to look I started doing quick sketches in order to visualize my imagination. drawings of how. For our final model, we had to use mechanical connectors to put everything together. This project was a real challenge but I truly enjoyed working on it and my end result. I also loved experiencing with materials that I had never used before.
