Hey Guys

Just a quick 12am entry before i drift off!

This week i had my first lessons in 3D for about 8 years. Great fun found it very interesting would love to work more with some of the materials available especially the  glass work and blacksmithing.. have always fancied being a blacksmith!

Some of the art we where shown in the slideshows was crazy, so after going through a few slides and chatting about the different pathways with Design our Weeks project was revealed to us as Counter Crisis straight away i thought this was going to be very similar the textiles task but this time it focused on prevention and cures, For example i researched on water purification for 3rd world countries and also movement assists such as Exo-suits.

But i already had my idea in my head for what i wanted to design as i had been thinking about it all week.

I aimed to create a portable 3D Map creator to be used for Military or Souvenir use, sort of a Map that would point out locations easier then paper but be quick to destroy, i also thought you would be able to use it to show your friends where you had travelled on holiday.

I made a textured map out of sand, coconut shell, and paint then i blew a clear bubble with the air moulder and then crafted the base out of hard foam.

I was happy with the finished project i think it showed what i wanted to do while causing questions.

Thanks for reading,

Kind Regards
