With this aesthetic piece of art complete, I now have found a new liking to creating and crafting interesting designs and art pieces. It was fun to gather all of the supplies and go through each step to create something to be displayed and it’ll now change the vibe of my empty room a little bit.
Regarding the piece itself, I am very pleased with how the style of the font came out and how the background is filled with string. This creates the contrast between the wood and the string using the connection points between the nails.
What’s next? I would like to change up the lighting on this piece a little bit to make the “H” stand out more. During my presentation, I received a lot of comments regarding the fact that the “H” could use more lighting and the ambient lighting from the string LEDs weren’t enough. That’ll be the next portion of this project.
This semester has been interesting and different. I’ve never really explored the idea of aesthetics and it was nice to dive into that realm. It has definitely opened my eyes to different styles and forms of aesthetic in the world.
