This project was an absolute learning experience for me. I started with a cool idea and ended up with something not quite what I intended. So for those of you who haven’t read my previous post, this was my initial idea:
Initially, I planned on having a terrarium in a tesseract enclosure made of wooden dowels, which in my opinion would represent travel back in time to when the earth was much greener. This concept was born from my love for lush greenery and the tesseract time-travel element was adopted from a well-known sci-fi movie.
I started by finding the materials for creating this piece. The polycarbonate tube was found in a machine shop scrap box, and the wooden dowels were sourced from a project depot. I cut the polycarbonate tubes into two and joined them into a quatrefoil shape to bring a gothic aesthetic. Further, I started creating the tesseract by breaking the wooden dowels into the required length and sticking them together.
Once I started sticking the diagonal sticks, I realized that it is too difficult to create the tesseract geometry. So I decided to create a more simpler pyramid geometry, and have the polycarbonate structure in the center.
As you might’ve already noticed, I am yet to plant anything in it. I am looking for a suitable plant so if anyone knows of any suitable indoor plants please let me know in the comments. I’ll be updating the post once I plant something in this.
