Bad scent – The smell of the dentist
– Argan Oil: Reminds me of body oil massage, a moment of relaxation during my trip to Bangkok. Bought a bottle to use weekly.
– Dentist: Connection to pain and fear. Memory of me avoiding the dentist.
Similarities in experience:
– I am lying down in both the body massage and at the dentist, a position of comfort, but experience a difference in emotions due to the smell.
– I would like to capture the similarity of the comfort of lying down in the sculpture and the contrast between smells and feelings.
Chihuly-inspired Faux Glass sculpture – permanent markers to draw on clear plastic cups
Initial model – I used light blue plastic and a clear plastic base, but i changed it to a white plastic strip.
White component – represents the clean smell of the dentist
Clear plastic and gold rim – Represents the smoothness of Argan oil
Colour – White vs. Clear and gold
Texture – the white component has a more textured and twisted surface while the clear part has a smooth and flowing surface. The bumpy surface of the white component represents the squirmy feeling I get while I am in a dentist’s chair, while the smoothness of the clear part represents the calmness of the argan oil scent
Structure – The white part curves outward while the planes of the clear plastic component curves inward.
The white part is wedged into the clear base.
