Coming up with an idea for the main project presented quite a challenge for my team. Due to the fact that there were so many options and possibilities out there, it was hard to narrow it down to something that was realistic yet interesting. A couple of preliminary ideas that we came up with was to make some sort of fixture that allows water to flow in a consistent and artistic manner. The image below shows some of the ideas we drew inspiration from.
However, the problem with this was that we didn’t really know what kind of aesthetic we could apply to it. We could go the route of using bamboo and creating a Japanese style water fountain or we could use metal and create a metallic type of aesthetic as well. Due to the fact that we are still in the early phases of the design, there are still a lot of things to consider such as water source, access to materials, as well as how we plan on executing this design so that it can be portable and easily presented.
