Post 7: Main Project Aesthetics: Plans and Alternatives

For my main project, I am currently immersed in the world of Abstract Art and surrealism, intertwined with the mesmerizing concept of pseudo perpetual machines. This aesthetic speaks to me on a deeply personal level, drawing inspiration from childhood memories of art exhibitions and recent encounters with captivating structures at the MIT Museum.

Planning for the Main Project includes sketching a clear picture what am i gonna design, gathering resources, and working accordingly step by step. These are yet to be determined. As of now  I am clear with the vision what I am gonna work towards. However, as I embark on this creative journey, I can’t help but wonder about alternative aesthetics that could breathe new life into my project. What if I explored vastly different styles, pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone even further?

One alternative aesthetic that piques my curiosity is the minimalist approach. Simplifying the complexity of my initial concept, I envision a project characterized by clean lines, stark contrasts, and a sense of understated elegance. Perhaps instead of intricate pseudo perpetual machines, I could focus on the interplay of Light and shadow, using minimalist forms to create captivating visual compositions. This aesthetic would challenge me to distill my ideas to their essence, emphasizing restraint and precision in both design and execution.

On the opposite end of the spectrum lies the Steampunk aesthetic—a fusion of Victorian-era industrial design and futuristic elements. In this iteration of my project, I imagine a world where pseudo perpetual machines take center stage, adorned with gears, cogs, and brass accents. Drawing inspiration from the works of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, I would create a visual narrative steeped in adventure and exploration, evoking a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era of invention and discovery. This aesthetic would allow me to indulge in ornate detailing and intricate craftsmanship, infusing my project with a sense of whimsy and adventure.

Considering these alternatives has been both exhilarating and enlightening. While my initial aesthetic resonates deeply with me, exploring different styles has opened my eyes to new possibilities and expanded my creative horizons. Ultimately, whichever path I choose for my main project, I am excited to delve into the process of bringing my vision to life and sharing it with others. Whether it’s through the abstract surrealism of pseudo perpetual machines, the simplicity of minimalist design, or the fantastical world of steampunk, I am eager to see where this creative journey takes me.

    I could see all three aesthetics you have considered working well! Have you considered what size you want you project to be?
