Post 9: Design Preview Report

For my aesthetic for the project I am aiming for a nature core as well as brutalist look. The nature core comes into play as the piece is encompassing a deer and nature which is very interesting to me because I love the outdoors. The brutalist look is going the come from the material choice for the construction of the piece as I really want to highlight the architecture and geometry that composes the deer mount. This will also be displayed in how the project was assembled in a three dimensional manner. An example of the brutalist look that I am looking to create can be seen below.

For the materials, I am planning on using eighth inch MDF from Home Depot that will be cut down to a size that fits the laser cutters that are at the ITLL. This material was selected because it is approved by the ITLL for cutting and I think that in encompasses the aesthetic that I am looking to get. It is also relatively cheap and easy to get which is very important in a project like this with limited time until the deadline. In order to complete this project I will need to take the laser cutting workshop to gain access to these machines. Once the CAD and cutting are completed the only thing left to do is complete the assembly by putting all the pieces together.

    I really like the concept and the aesthetic that you have chosen for this project. Do you think using MDF would make the artifact too heavy to be hung on a wall??

    I really like your aesthetics for this type of project. Are you going for a life sized mount or will it be scaled down? Will the pieces hold themselves together or will they need to be attached. Im looking forward to seeing your final result!
