The final project of the year was The Boat Project. We had to construct a boat from one 4x8' piece of plywood, a pound of fasteners, 60 yards of duct tape, the equivalent of two 2x4's, and paint.

In this project we had to think of an original idea for a toy and creating it along with the packaging. My toy is called Ro/Cora Tech and it's consisting of a sculpy model of a heart and a square which can be decorated with a variety of attachable plastic parts such as ears, eyes, and lips to make a face.
The packaging is a simple box that includes the name of the product as well as some other shapes that you can find in "stores".
Color: is the property of a piece producing different sensations on the eye based on the way the piece reflects or emits different wavelengths of light.

Here's a picture of the process of making my Clock/Guitar. It was really hard to try to get the shape that you wanted, but it was fun.
While I was deciding which objects to use for my piece, I made a sketch exploring solutions for my final product.
The finished piece is based off of these two objects.
Here are some sketches I did before starting to make the Mask. My alter ego is a girl who loves fashion but that her natural look is very simple and sweet. I created half of the mask because this girl is not entirely fashion, she loves that style and sometimes use clothes in which represents it. But her real life is a simple and sweet style. I think that represents me, because I love fashion styles but I also love the simple things.
