3D Object of Interest


My 3D object is a seashell keychain. This seashell is an example of a natural 3d form. It is interesting as nature is able to take its own course into forming a natural composition of the dominant, sub dominant and subordinate. The large smooth and polished surface represents the dominant of the entire form followed by the a line slowly spiralling in the centre forming the sub dominant. Upon reaching the centre where the spiral is tighter is forms the subordinate which draws your eye attention to it. All three compliments each other nicely giving it an interesting 3 dimensional form.

It is made out of the natural shell material but further polished to make it less fragile in form as seashells break easily. It is aesthetically pleasing and makes a good function for hanging your keys or even just as a keychain.

    Perhaps the metal key chain portion could be considered as the SD? Try to look at the object as an entity. You might also want to talk about the suggestive voids created by the shell and its contrasting ‘open’ and ‘close’ ‘back and front’ views.
