On Saturday the 30th of January I and Rebecca Oliver commenced our group’s 3D NATURE VS TECHNOLOGY tree together. The rest of the group were unable to attend due to other commitments but were set the collective task of completing 10 illustrated leaves each based on our theme to be later attached to our tree.
Together we enjoyed following the groups collaborated plan and the insight obtained from our mock up piece.
The group’s number one priority and goal for the day was to complete a brief 3D tree formation.
The other parts from the plan including the electrical wires and illustrated leaves are elements that follow as additional features to the trees formation which needs to be addressed after we are firstly content with the structure and aesthetic of our tree.
The DEVELOPMENT of our NATURE VS TECHNOLOGY TREE:
The sticks proved not that awkward to work with as a material for what we were doing with them in this project as we didn’t have to intervene with their natural form but use it to our advantage.
HAZARD: We did have to be careful to not to get our eyes poked out by all the branches sticking out.
We used thick dry brushes to sweep away all the debris on the cardboard ground before taking the photographs to tidy it up.
It feels great knowing that our 3D tree structure is made from mostly recycled materials. Re-inventing the role of materials is so creative, rewarding and fun.
- Recycled poster tube.
- Recycled branches.
- Recycled twigs.
- Recycled cardboard backing to mirror.
- Dried grass.
- Garden wire.
- Glue gun.
- Dried thick brush.
