The last few weeks have been busy per usual. However, as we approach spring break and we wrap up projects, I finally have some extra time to write a few blog posts to summarize the last month. In industrial design studio, we have been working on the final compositions for the deconstruct/reconstruct project. In this project, we took a found object, in my case a hand plain, and deconstructed it to understand the form and function. After this, we did several iterative models to reach a final composition which pays homage to what we observed in the first step. The final model is made of different colors of chipboard joined with Sobo glue. In my model, I chose to include a mechanical mechanism that slides. As you push the plain forward the wood shaving grows longer. Of the work I have done while here at Wentworth this is my new favorite.
