Ying Hui and I are working together for this Kokopelli’s Sound Shaper project,. Our first task is to select a pleasant and unpleasant sound, then construct a sound fabric from each of them. After deciding on the sounds, Ying Hui and I proceeded to ideate individually first before combining both our visions together in the final sound fabric.

Significance of the Face
The lucky body part that I managed to draw from the Pandora’s Box is… the face! The face is a unique and complicated part of the body. It is not merely another part of the body, but it plays huge roles in shaping us into the person we are and also how we communicate with Read more →
Researching on how frogs and humans hear, I realised that there is a great deal of similarities on how both auditory system function. Represented by Read more →
Revisiting the Pandora’s Box, the three keywords that I received to put together in a module were: Pack, Extrude and Skew. In this post you will find the process of the making of the final ice tray using repeated moulds of the same module.
In this module, all three keywords were explored within one singular module.

Hi Cheryl, thanks for the feedback! I will update my drawings accordingly. I actually did show you the plaster mould during class as well, I was just worried that the texture might have been considered bad craftsmanship of some sort haha.
I forgot to collect my silicon mould before coming home for the new year so I’ll try to get the ice up as soon as possible. :(
Hi Cheryl, I'm not sure if you've seen my updated post so just tagging you here in case :)

Prototype 3 (Final):
The silicon cast did not come out to well in my opinion. My clay modules had a convex surface thus the silicon leaked under. I did try to cover it up with the hot glue gun but it did not work. But that was an easy fix. Read more →
Started the sem off by revisiting sem one project, “Pandora”. Although it’s called “Pandora Revisited”, I feel like it is more like the MA as we need to create modules. The chosen words are twist, bend, interlock.
Twist: form into a bent, curling, or distorted shape. Bend: shape or force (something straight) into a curve or angle. Interlock: (of two or more things) engage with each Read more →
After selecting one out of the three modules to work with, it’s time to get on to the fun part – making the silicone mould! Therefore, this post is dedicated to the technical drawings of my ideal ice tray and the process of making it.
To recap, my key words are fracture, reflect and array.

As we ushered in the new semester, we were pleasantly greeted by the reappearance of the Pandora Box. For this particular project, we were tasked to create modules based on the words drawn from the Pandora Box. The words drawn were – Bend, Array & Pinch.
Definition of the drawn words
