Final Work from Hui Min and Rachel(I)
It is a combination of :
What we Pick Out From our Models:
- Materials and Softness in Hui Mins Model
- My Model Spiral Pattern/arrangement
- The idea of one spiral is one whole strip
- The idea of combining hardness(the color strips on Hui Min model) and softness(Bottom of Hui Mins Model)
We started off with research, sketches and getting materials, followed by discovering the mystery store room inside the workshop. -.-“
And all the materials we wanted is inside the room. Anyway,
We come into a agreement to used wire as our lamp skeleton and to just have two round rings on the top and bottom. So that we could play around with the pattern from the top to connecting to the bottom.
Our initial skeleton was a middle rod in the middle to connect the two ring, then we realized the light bulb problem, then we change to connect the two ring with three rods and the side, but we felt it being too consistence. Finally, we change it to one bigger ring on top and one smaller ring on the problem.
When thinking about material cotton led us to the thought of gauze and the colored wire on Hui Mins model led us to Fiber Optic. As well as having a less rigid material like the wire mesh so that we could explore on the romanesco model spiral pattern.

PRESENTING TO YOU………………………..ZHAR BO!!
We wanted to create a hanging lamp with a soft shadow that is not so glaring. And also both of us really love the little shadow that is instead reflected on the gauze. We uses the little flowery buds of gauze we created and align them in a spiral pattern on the metal mesh. Then attach the metal mesh in a spiral alignment onto the two ring on the top and bottom. Using the fiber optic on the side, it gives a contrast of hardness in compared to the softness the the gauze gives out:)
LASTLY, THANK YOU PEEPO AND PETER:) !!! All the fun and laughter we have in class and all the rubbish talk we have, and the amazing field-trip and extra art History Lesson!!!! I SO GONNA MISS THIS CLASS!!!:(
