My Personal Aesthetic

My personal aesthetic for Thanos’ Gauntlet in my opinion is pretty hard to pin down. In my head I believe that there is a unique aesthetic to Marvel movies, but solely thinking of Thanos’ Gauntlet makes me think of a more viking aesthetic.  For each of the heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), there…

My Personal Aesthetic: Cartoons

One of my personal aesthetics is cartoons. I grew up watching Cartoon Network. In early childhood watching Courage the cowardly dog, Dexter’s laboratory and The power puff girls was something I looked forward to every day. Later Pokemon, Bayblade and Dragon Ball Z became my favourite. In primary school I used to sketch my favourite…

My Personal Aesthetic: A combination of inspiration from pop culture, the outdoors, and current fashion trends

I feel like my personal aesthetic comes from a combination of a few things- an appreciation for pop culture/music, a love for the outdoors, and an attention to current fashion trends. I really love for my passions to show through in my aesthetic, and I think my style and living space are good examples of…

My Personal Aesthetic: Cars

One of my personal interests is cars, and I find futuristic designs of car particularly aesthetically pleasing to look at. I think the reason why most people, including myself, love cars is because it gives us a sense of freedom. Having a car gives you the opportunity to go where you want, when you want.…

Personal Aesthetic

I believe my preferred personal aesthetic is the beach cowboy style; a mix between a mountain cabin/house and a tropical or seafaring style. I grew up near the coast of Venezuela in South America; I was an hour away from the beach and fifteen minutes away from the coastal mountain. My hobbies  related mostly to…

My Personal Casual Aesthetic

My personal aesthetic would definitely be a more laid back, casual and sport related type of aesthetic. The majority of the clothes and shoes that I own are either workout clothes or relaxing clothes such as sweat pants and hoodies. I have never really thought about my personal aesthetic before this post but this aesthetic…

Modern Craftsmen

My personal aesthetic originated from what was seen as the Arts and Crafts movement in the early 1900s. The aesthetic is largely based off of what my mom saw as the peak of house styles known as Craftsmen. Growing up a big influence in my design tastes was from hearing my mom talk about Craftsmen…

The Aesthetic of Ben Husa

I’d never really thought of my personal aesthetic until this class.  I assume that I, like many others have a lot of different aesthetics that we identify with.  I would say that growing up in Colorado, I would like to think that I have a relatively outdoorsy esthetic that aligns me with the mountains and…

Upcycling a Vase using Collage Progress.

For my project, I decided to upcycle a decorative vase I had by using leftover magazines, newspaper, and other paper material lying around my house to form an art piece that fits the Merz paper mache collage aesthetic. I have been interested in the Merz aesthetic ever since I found out about and researched it’s…

Mousetrap Car 2.0

If you have taken a physics class in high school, which I’d imagine most of you did, you’ve probably had to build a mousetrap car as one of your projects. For me, it was a really interesting and fun project because you got to apply the physics concepts that you learned in class into an…

Cardboard Rocket Ship

Presentation and Critiques When I first thought of what I should make for my upcycle project, I wanted to use whatever discarded material that I already have to save time and money. With this in mind, I looked around my place and found several cardboard boxes that are just sitting there waiting to be thrown…

Upcycled Collage Vase

Souvenir Crystal Ball Light

At this time for the upcycling project, I have managed to make the final product somewhat close to the initial idea. I started off with using solar panels from my calculators to charge Li-ion Rechargeable Button Cells(LIR-2032), 3.6 V that would power a Red LED inside a Crystal Ball Souvenir. My circuit consisted of a…

Upcycle Spatula

  Completing this upcycle project has definitely been a fun and interesting experience. It is always fulfilling to use low value materials to create something valuable and/or useful. I don’t mean to detract in any way from the value of creating pure art, but I personally find the upcycle process especially fulfilling when one produces…
