Main Project Plans and Alternatives

Project Plans and Alternatives

I finally reduced my main project ideas to two distinct possible designs. The first is a Japanese aesthetic wind chime, and the second is a minimalist/organic tabletop water fountain. I really enjoy Japanese aesthetics as a whole and am still unsure on which distinct aesthetic I will choose for the wind chime, however I know that I want to incorporate the Wabi-Sabi principle of natural simplicity and beauty in the imperfections. Although, I want the wind chime to be somewhat simple in its design, I plan to include a vibrant and colorful pallete to it. For my tabletop water fountain, I am considering either organic or minimalist design to be the aesthetic. I plan for the fountain to have a neutral earth tone color-pallete, and a design that is visually pleasing yet calming and peaceful. I will decide which of these designs I will go with as soon as I start collecting the necessary materials and getting a feel for what I truly want to build.

    I love both of your design ideas so far. Did you have any plans to potentially combine the ideas? Somehow incorporate a wind chime into a water fountain or add water into the wind chime design?

    • Hi Colin,
      Thanks for your feedback. I actually haven’t thought about that, thanks for the idea!

    I love the aesthetic you chose for the sketches above! Especially for the curves, they have shown the direction of blowing wind very clearly,
    Looking forward for your final work!
