Week 8 e-journal : What we did in 3d class


3d fundamentals is a class where we are required to do artifacts with materials such as wires and papers. So far we have done 4 pieces and i thoroughly enjoy this class as we get to create artifacts using simple materials such as wire and paper. the module is interesting to me as it provides students with opportunities to become confident with 3d structures and forms. It helps students develop techniques of design.

I enjoy it due to the work we are required to do, to design the products and bring it to life. Its extremely fun and exciting.

Week 7 Homework: Inanimate Object with Human Characteristics











This exercise has taught me that you can sense emotions and feelings in anything and that you can find inspiration and art in anything if we have the ability to.

WEEK 7: Classroom exercise 2

Identify 3 existing products to discover relationships to other objects and images. Preferably seeking examples where a modest source has influenced the form of a luxurious target, and vice versa.

Wood; Wood is definitely a material that has been influenced to form other objects such as tables, chairs and clothes hanger. The options are endless as to what one can do with wood and what wood can inspire to do.

WEEK 7: Classroom exercise 1

"Select objects or images from your familiar environment that demonstrated the practice of analogical thinking"

Analogical thinking is a way of reasoning between aspects of things.

I have decided to use a bowl as a reference to this exercise.
When you think of a bowl... you think of the size...

You may think of the material the bowls are made of....
Wood,plastic,glass,ceramic etc.

Even the design of the bowl, if its round or square or oval shaped.

However, by making a bowl in a more  unique way, we can make it seem more interesting and cool.

By making this bowls in a unique way, we can make them more useful and ideal for purposes needed.
Such as the images shown above, to keep eggs. to store nuts and the nutshells. to keep fruits and have a bowl with openings to show a different dimension to the existing traditional bowl.
