The main aesthetic movement that has influenced the design of my final project is organic movement. I am planning on using both the shapes and curves used in this movement, as well as physical organic objects to achieve this design. Below, I’ve included a sketch of one possible way for me to create an organic design. This one includes a section from a tree branch as the wheel and an almost hourglass figure as the mount.
My second design option involves using a leaf shape and design for the mounting part. In this option, a tree branch section will still be used as the spin wheel.
My last aesthetic option is using a different aesthetic. This will be an industrial/mechanical design which matches my area of study. In this design, two gears would be used as the the spin wheels (one for belts and another for ties).
