This semester I created two artifacts. The first artifact I created was an up-cycled lamp. For this artifact I focused on the appearance and how to make common trash into a beautiful object someone would want to keep inside their home. I achieved this with a very floral aesthetic. The second object I created was a snow globe terrarium. For this artifact I focused on function and aesthetic. The function that was emphasized was the ability to house plants. The aesthetic that was emphasized was a fairy tale aesthetic with influences from the arts and crafts movement. All of the posts pertaining to these projects are linked below including posts where I explored varying aesthetics.
