So this week I have decided to go onto the route of prioritising material over functionality and make that the inspiration just like Heejoo Kim and at the same time look at her Source material as well.
Heejoo Kim’s inspiration has been weird natural forms like fungal mushroom shapes. I also find this strange to look at so I decided to give it a bash and take pictures of this. Moreover upon research I will also be sculpting from clay asm not a good carver like Heejoo Kim so I’m just going to sculpt!
Upon further research I did decide to print off a 3d printed ball inspired by a lichen cell this has many functioned and it has surprised me as there can be so many playful options with this ball as it can teach people to grip it can bouncy it can also out a solid object inside but most importantly bring people together and play.
If I was given more time I would develop these further especially this 3d printed ball as I find it fascinating to make products or be it jewellery or objects catered for people that need to be helped be it physically or mentally. I guess I just want to change the world one design at a time.
