As a warm up assignment we are recycling low value waste into aesthetic pleasing objects. Deciding what to do isn’t always easy however for me this time around it was simpler than in the past. Over the winter break I read “Creative Confidence” by David and Tom Kelley ( I highly recommend it to anyone looking to do any kind of design), a book aimed at unleashing creativity among all types of persons. I enjoyed the book and really gave me confidence to move forward with designs. One of the ideas in the book that got my attention was to quit the decisions and start making whatever was the last idea you had and iterate to make it better.
I decided to use paper towel tubes because I had two in hand hence I just needed a few more.
I decided cutting the tubes into 1 cm thick rings would be ideal so that I could be repetitive.
Doodling during class I got the idea to build a pyramid like structure and bend the tubes into triangles. My idea so far looks like this, although I would not be surprised if it changes.
In this drawing I intended to do a 4 sided pyramid with the top cut off. I also attempted to do this in a two point perspective. I hope the final product is expressionist giving a feeling of vibrant light and well being.
