Form to Scale

The Project began with a selection of a series of household objects and fluffy toys that were reproduced with paper cut outs, plaster casts and vacuum forms. Then a series vacuum forms of a watering can with various distortions were later combined together to create a new object which acts as a contrast to the solid and heavy characteristics of the watering can.

Scale was approached by combining the new object and adding a series of different sized people in relation to the object. The idea of a building scale was no longer interesting so the project moved to slicing an individual vacuum form mould and generating a 3D model that maps out the different curvatures with different sized perforations.

The individual pieces were later combined together and lighting tests began to produce an object produced various scales through shadow castings and was totally foreign from its original object ( the watering can)

The project was focused on how through different material tests and deformations that are computer generated or done by hand, an ordinary object may be transformed into something totally unordinary that has a whole new form and function.
