Main Project Plans and Inspirations

For my final project, I have a vision of creating a wristwatch and its aesthetic would be heavily inspired from Art Nouveau and Clockpunk aesthetics. Art Nouveau was a movement that emerged in the late 19th century and was popular in the early 20th century. It is characterized by its organic, flowing lines, and decorative…

Main Project Plans and Inspirations

For my own personal aesthetic, I have had considerable trouble trying to figure it out and decide. However, I have always been interested in two major themes: organic architecture and engineering.

Personal Aesthetic and Project Idea

Its difficult to sum up my personal aesthetic because it includes aspects of many types of other aesthetics.

Personal Aesthetic and Main Project Plans

One of my main personal aesthetics is minimalism. I am drawn towards designs and styles that prioritize simplicity, functionality, and a focus on essential elements.

Main Project Plan: Wood Bathymetric Map

I am fascinated with topography and cartography. I waste too much time perusing google maps looking for interesting things in places I am intimately familiar with or have never been. The lay of the land and how that influences human ideals and settlements. Besides the particle benefits, humans are drawn to mountains and water. I…

I enjoy playing with gears and building blocks, which is why my aesthetic is going to be my best attempt at steampunk.

Personal Aesthetic & Main Project Plan

I wouldn’t say I necessarily have a personal aesthetic. It enjoys a lot of different and opposite aesthetics and implement many of them into what I do/make. One of my favorite aesthetics to implement into things I make is a more understated/sleeper aesthetic that focuses on functionality over all else. I would say this kind…

Blog Post 6: Solwave

Coming up with “my own personal aesthetic” was definitely more of a challenge than I imagined. After looking through pages and pages of aesthetics I found a few that personally grabbed my attention the most, so before getting into mine, I’d like to discuss some of the major movements it draws from. The first major…

Maritime Aesthetic Puzzle Box Plans

I like boats. Specifically, I love the look of old wooden sailing ships like the ones in Pirates of the Caribbean. I’ve been thinking of making a model ship since the beginning of this semester, and after some quick research found the name of the aesthetic that fits my idea: the maritime aesthetic. The above…

Arcade or Orrery

For my final project, I’m having a hard time deciding if I want to make an arcade or an orrery; Both of these projects I’ve wanted to make before but have stopped for either not having access to machines, expense, or more recently distracted by school. An arcade is fairly easy to make, with a…

My Aesthetic and Tensegrity Sculpture Plans

My personal aesthetic is not something I think about too often, but if I were to sum it up, I would include the mixed concepts of minimalism, functionable, sporty, and technical. I am drawn to aesthetics that have technical or mechanical aspects rather than purely creative and like products that have functionable features on top…

Functional Aesthetic

I would say my personal aesthetic is very broad and depends on my environment a lot, but the one common thread is that I put a lot of focus into functionality and usually this equates to comfort. I am not too concerned with looking “good” as much as I am feeling comfortable while still meeting…

Himachal-Inspired Textile Sculpture

Major Project Plan Introduction Achieving an exciting colorful aesthetic is my primary objective for the final project. For all my life I’ve been drawn to colorful clothes and vibrant, mixed patterns. Wearing polka dots along with stripes and organic patterns at the same time never seemed like a clash to me, although the more conservatively-dressed…

Main Project Plans + Inspiration

I have a difficult time defining my own aesthetic, as it feels like a very fluid combination of several different concepts. If I were to narrow it down, I’d say my aesthetic is a combination of tech, nature, metro, and retro. Partially, this comes from a respect/longing for past decades, possibly due to my exposure…

Main Project Plans and Inspiration

What is your personal aesthetic? The aesthetic that I have been running with thus far is spacecore, and previously it was retro-futurism. Both of these aesthetics share some qualities: some retro-futuristic artworks could be considered spacecore as well. The reason I switched is because the retro-futurism aesthetic requires that I include artwork with the style…

Main Project Plan and Inspiration – Electronic candle as Night-light

(An example of Night-light for kids on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/One-Fire-Birthday-Teenage-Squishy/dp/B0836V6S4R/ref=sr_1_20?c=ts&keywords=Night-Lights&qid=1678224685&s=lamps-light&sr=1-20&ts_id=3736651) (https://www.amazon.com/CHWARES-Multicolor-Breathing-Bedroom%EF%BC%8CUSB-Rechargeable/dp/B07NW8ZM3M) I’m still not sure what my main project will look like this semester, the clue is to make a device or decoration that will change over time. Maybe a fake candle that will gradually switch the light by the changing of daylight. Or a digital clock…

Personal Aesthetic & Main Project

It is no secret that I am a very sentimental person, as the clothes I wear and even some of the tattoos I have represent shows/video games that I enjoyed as a child. Things like walking past my freshman dorm or having my “last first day” as a college student always emit some kind of…

Personal Aesthetic and Main Project Direction

I guess I would describe my personal aesthetic as minimalist and understated. I generally only wear one or two muted colors, preferably without many graphics outside of simple patterns. I avoid wearing logos, text-heavy clothing, and bright colors. I don’t generally have any other adornments except maybe a simple small necklace or bracelet. I think…

An Uncertain Aesthetic

Aesthetics have always been hard for me. I never particularly cared about my appearance, and, while I have certainly made leaps and bounds in choice of clothing and furniture since my youth, I am still certainly not an aesthetically inclined individual. This likely comes from the influences I had growing up, as well as my…
