For the first lesson of Project 3, we were to bring two scents along with us, one that evokes a pleasant memory and the other one that evokes an unpleasant memory.
Here are my scents..!
The scent that I brought that evokes a pleasant memory is a perfume from The Body Shop.
The perfume was the very one I wore for my first date. Then as an adolescent, I often look up to my mom in terms of dressing up and even learning how to put make-up for the first time. I knew I had to dress up and that also means smelling pleasant. Instinctively, I went to my mother’s cupboard of perfume and picked a random one.
Hence, this scent has since reminded me of my first date.
The scent that I brought was the scent of moth balls. (My roommate happen to have them )
When I was very much younger, at the age of 5 to 12 years old, I was left alone at my grandmother’s house very often. This is due to the busy schedule that my parents had and I remember the lonely nights I had to spend over at my grandmother’s place because of that. As an elderly, my grandmother loves to place moth balls around the house to keep it smelling fresh and to remove the water vapour in the air that causes things to get mouldy. Hence, the iconic thing about my grandmother’s house is the smell of moth balls, especially in her room where I use to spend the night. The smell of moth balls brings me back to the unpleasant childhood experience I had to go through being left alone at my grandmother’s place. (Even so, I really love my grandmother! She watched me grew up!)
Learning about 2D Planes and 3D Planes
During class itself, we were taught the difference between 2D Planes and 3D Planes.
2D Planes Side View – A line
3D Plane Side View – Looks much like a ribbon
|Straight Axis||Curved Axis|
|Bent Axis||Broken Axis|
|Curved Axis||Twisted Axis|
|Complex Axis (Combination of Curved & Bent)||Grouped Axis|
Thereafter, we were to construct a 3D model that consists of a dominant, sub-dominant and a sub-ordinate using strips of paper of differing widths.
Since we are required to describe scents in a manner or two, I decided to research on the ways I can use adjectives to describe them.
