For my upcyling design I wanted to create a light product/structure. To put it simply it would be considered a lamp or a light fixture of some sort, but I wanted to broaden my design so that the only criteria is that it deals with light in some fashion. I have included below my design thinking and things I considered while I was brainstorming about this design and all it would entail.
This is a PDF of my design thinking and sketches of my initial thoughts on my design. I want to further develop my concept and logistics of the project as well as my inspiration as I keep gathering information to help me move my design forward.
My next steps in my progress will be to start experimenting with he twine and strings on the planter to see what different light effects it will create. I want to develop my concept and function of the design better, and what its overall meaning will be. I also need to solve the design problem of being able to turn the light on and off when it is fixed inside the planter.
