For our final project, we had to get into groups of 2 and combine elements of our SEM structure to form a lamp shade. Our lamp shade had factors to take into consideration and that was cohesiveness of the two SEMs, light, shape, form and shadow.
l was paired up with Dora whose SEM was a raspberry and mine which was a black walnut leaf. We took elements of Dora’s “abstract-ness” and the structured-ness with rectangular patterns of mine to incorporate it into our shade.
We used rice paper and an xacto knife to cut out the patterns. After which, we brushed fabric stiffener on it to stiffen the rice paper. For the structure of the cuboid, we bent a into the shape that we wanted and wrapped up the wire using masking tape.
It was definitely a really tedious process but Im glad we managed to pull through cause the outcome was definitely worth it in the end.
