The design process so far has been frustrating: I have looped back to previous steps several times so far. My project is an electronic project, but given the nature of the Upcycle project all the components have to be scraps discarded from other projects. These parts are very difficult to work with, as I don’t know how they work/if they even work at all. I have many old components, and a challenge now is figuring what works and which components are compatible with each other. I am just about there though, I believe I have identified the components that are compatible, all work, and will be suitable to fulfill my aesthetic and will work in my final product. I also have to remember to incorporate at all angles my aesthetic of educational industrial chic: I will do this by using clear acrylic, labeling all parts with a placard that explains how they work, and incorporate patterns and colors found throughout the ITLL.
