Summing It All Up

During my final semester at the University of Colorado this course, Aesthetics in Design provided an introductory immersion into the world of design. Each week I wrote a blog post pertaining to an aspect of design which interested me or about my progress in the different assignments. There were two main projects, the first one was an Upcycling project where we had to come up with an artifact built only using recycled materials, I made a lamp cover which showcased pictures of intergalactic space and cosmic events framed on painted cardboard. For my final project I was able to design and manufacture a more complex system which I titled “Dynamic Light Sculpture” it is composed of a rotating outer shell with an illuminated interior. Overall this class was both an educative and fun experience I would recommend it to anyone with even the slightest interest in design.

    Andres, it’s been wonderful watching you make some really great light-up table projects! I really enjoyed how you made the colored lights pour onto the wall.
