For my upcycle project I choose to make something I wanted and then applied an aesthetic to it. For the main project I would like to do it the other way around: to determine an aesthetic, then apply it to a thing.
I have yet to determine either an aesthetic or an object, but here are some of my thoughts towards selecting an aesthetic:
- Hot rod/muscle cars
These things all bear a sort of industrial origin and my interest in them probably tied to my interest in mechanical engineering. I would like to apply the aesthetic of something that interests me to something that might otherwise view as boring.
