Tetris and Aerial are two individual projects I created to explore the materiality, texture, form and structure of objects.
I wanted to explore and better understand materials. These two projects allowed me to:
work on abstract forms,
create an entirely new object out of existing materials, and
practice my hand production skills.

Exploring Texture & Form
For my 3D Class Project, we explored forms and shapes using cardboard. I created an abstract sculptural form that explored the materiality of the object. One of the things I wanted to emphasize was detail and texture all throughout the three studies I made. Moving forward, I combined different aspects of the studies to arrive at one final piece.
Inspired by plants, I created a cactus-shaped sculpture out of rice paper, sticks and wax chords. I wanted the piece to embody softness and lightness so that it could enhance how I envisioned flow as a concept. I left some areas of the sculpture uncovered to create the notion that breeze can easily flow through the piece.
