After the treasure hunting last week, these are some items i purchase. Honestly, I am pretty curious about the function for some items sold there!
In class today, we were suppose to create and craft out an living organism out of these materials. You probably thought it’s pretty easy but it’s not!
After reviewing my initial ideas with Mr Peter, I decided to scrape off my initial animal design, Bye monkey…:(
After staring at the items for don’t know how long
Hence, after cutting, gluing and combining them, I GOT A CRAB!
Overall, the lesson was fun and it teaches me to look at things at different perspective and not restrict our self to the imagination we had in mind. It was pretty hard doing this project, we had to view our items in different perspective but sometimes the animal just doesn’t come out, even if it did it’s hard to convince people what animal your item resemble.
Anyway, I have some materials left and I’m going to see if i can create a few more animal!:)
And so i went back home and ask my dad if he have unwanted tools or pieces from his tool box and he gave me this:
After digging and and exploring i came out with two more animal! yes!
A Hedgehog! the feets and nose came in a packet inside the scrap box and the body is actually the left over scrub i used for my 2D mono-printing assignment.
A Scorpion!, at first i was worry that i uses too many parts, but then i realized i actually uses four parts and repeat using them.
For example, the metasoma (tail) is actually the same material use for the hedgehog nose i just repeatedly glued (with glue gun) a few of them together and form the curve tail. As for the pincher and stinger i use the feet use for the hedgehog, bend it and glue it. The body is then made up of a whole pieces, it’s a cable connected according to my dad.
I had a fun time exploring these materials and feel so “enlightened” haha whenever i discover a new animal or a creature. Materials that you first pick up and thought “nah,” might be the key parts to make your animal more realistic. Overall, this task allows me to look things in all perspective, when you happen to turn to the correct angle it would just snap you “ahhh~~ this looks like the…”. SO FUN.
