This is a beautiful alternative to the boring blocky blobs that we see in so many kitchens today. Plus, the glass allows you to see the progress of the item being cooked! Wonderful
Due to the time constraints of the project and complexity of the last revision idea, I have decided to revise the project design to function more like an optometrist phoropter with different colored lenses and etc.
Upon reflection, I decided to revise my idea for the “perception” piece from the original design due to the object being viewed having to be limited to the interior size of the sphere or lenses and glass. Here are the notes I ended up taking on my iPhone later on the 17th following my initial idea for the “perception” piece:
“Creative project idea – perspective/perception piece
What if you took me years and lenses may find glasses colored glass different kind of surfaces to make a giant viewfinder toy that you could use to see the world.
You might be able to figure out how to make a sepia toned appearance or Kaleidoscope as well. Maybe black surface as one option to represent blindness. Maybe make views from different heights as well like big height, kid height, regular, tall, and ladder height….or just have that as an additional piece”
I was in class on the 17th, and, toward the very end of class, had the idea to create an art piece regarding the idea of “perception”. Here are my notes from class:
This idea began Ina representation of suspending an object inside a sort of ball made up of all sorts of lenses, colored glass, etc. the object being viewed would be suspended with wire and inside rings allowing it to rotate 360 degrees on the x and y axis while also being able to stop rotation with some sort of pin in order to view the object through whatever lens or glass from just about any angle.
I think projecting information onto already available surfaces is a natural progression of information sharing. So, this solution to providing up to date bus, subway, traffic, and bicycle information makes total sense. Plus, it removes the need for wasteful printing or unneeded bulky monitors.
