Until today, I still had no idea what I wanted to do, which is one reason this post is late. Today, Wednesday March 2nd, was incredibly windy. While I was walking between classes the wind gave me an idea, an inspiration you could say. I decided to make a set of wind chimes. Some examples below:
These are some examples of do-it-yourself wind chimes.
To put my own aesthetic twist on the chimes, I think I want to go for a mix between an “engineering” aesthetic and a Naval Aviation aesthetic. For the engineering portion I want to use all silver metals, and maybe some unique geometry. This also goes well with the naval aviation aesthetic because all of the platforms employed by the navy are a haze gray color. To incorporate this part of the aesthetic I would like to use a model F-18 or H-60 as the weight at the bottom, or a nice piece on the top. Pictures of these below.
