3D Project 2


For my unit, I have chosen the stomata of an aloe vera. Thus, the choice of materials I have chosen is clay. This is because of how there are some deep ends on the inside of the stomata and the fact that it is very irregular, makes clay the best choice for material. The stomata is also on the cuticle of the plant, which is why I have chosen to have a cuboid shape as my base and the stomata at the front.


For the background, I have chosen to have a certain texture that would be more rough but also have a certain wave like appearance that makes the whole structure to look rhythmic. I depicted the background as the stomata, and thus there would be sunken holes at the background surrounded by lobes.

Side view




At first, I thought that it was difficult to find a representation for the unit itself. I thought of using egg cartons because of how I noticed there were stomatas that were shaped like a dome and the texture is similar to the egg carton.

However, after examining the material, I thought that clay would be a better choice as it is able to create deep ends and a concave structure.
