self-portrait cubed

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 used blending and cross-hatch to shade these. I like blending better because I think it makes things look more realistic.

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.

A place for a memory?

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.
