I was given a choice to pick between 2 objects. One useful, another worthless.
Useful: Honey Beeswax Lip Balm (I use it everyday without fail)
Worthless: Expired Golf Proficiency Certificate
I’ve decided to use the “worthless” object to show that I can make something useful out of something worthless. My main object is the golf proficiency certificate. So, I’ve decided to focus more on the use of Golf.
Golf is a sport that represents calmness. You need to concentrate and be calm when you play this sport. Research shows that the color green presents calmness. Hence, the greenery in my artwork represents the calmness. When you’re playing on the green, you’re surrounded by almost everything nature-related. Hence, I’ve decided to focus on the materials of nature such as wood and grass to represent my artwork.
Moving on to the balancing beam, the 2 balls hung on the balance beam represents balance. I made sure both of the balls are filled with the same amount of sand to balance it well. The balancing beam is placed on a rotating platform and spun around to show the swing effect. Both of these techniques are very essential in a game of golf. The part that supports the balancing beam to the ground, that represents the feet. It shows how important that part is as the placement of the foot is very crucial. If not placed properly, the entire artwork will collapse.
I’ve enjoyed doing this project as I had a chance to bring out my craftsmanship and apply it well to my product. Overall, I am very satisfied with my final artwork.
And spinning the balancing beam around can be quite addicting.
