This was my self-portrait project. I used a very basic shape, a cube. this was supposed to represent my head and the thoughts in it. I used a clear plastic so you could "see into" my
thoughts. I did eight different portraits, each one with a different concept. I liked the drawing part of this project but it was by far the most frustrating. I spent so much time drawing i didn't have much time to think about what would hold them. Unfortunately this project fell apart as i was bringing it up to my desk. I took pictures of each side.

I thought this was a very interesting project. At first I didn't know where to go with this project bu then me and tommy and talked and that really helped me. I morphed them together on their joinery. The middle one is a mixture of being held together with both bending and string.
This was by far the hardest project. This one was very frustrating to me. This was my first time working with plastic and it was very hard to cut. I started off with using plastic tubes that were curved. My first iteration was a disaster, it wouldn't even stand upright. My second iteration was much better. I used hard plastic tubes and cut them with a saw to descending heights. It reminded me of a clear emerald city, which was not what i was going for. My final one was the most frustrating, I couldn't figure out how to make the plastic stay together. I finally melted the plastic strips to a base. My memory was reaching for a wind chime. The tallest strip is much more steep than all the other heights and very wobbly. I did this on purpose to show how strained and off balance you are when you're really reaching.

This is my zine. I tried to leave a lot of blank space so you would only concentrate on the product and the text. I made the text red because I thought it would make your eye go right to the text. I wanted the text read before you looked at the picture. I did my zine on product design. These were my ten favorites. There were so many awesome products out there it was hard to choose.
