Initial Ideas

DSCN2741 DSCN2742 DSCN2743 DSCN2744 DSCN2745 DSCN2746 DSCN2747All of my starting ideas. Thinking after class discussion that i will be looking more into the “shell” design. i really like the octagon of the three designs. More then likely going to get a plaster piece scaled down made asap just to see how it could work!

 

Project Two: Precedent Study

At this website they go into detail on how life-casting is done.The company that is presenting it is EnvironMolds. They make molds that are safe from the earth and safe for ones body parts. The mold that i was looking at is one of the face. A flexible mold is needed so that it can comfortably fit on a persons face and dry and not kill the person face. The website goes into great detail on the process and everything that is needed to get this project going. it also have play by play photos. I think that this is a really cool process, for the fact that there is actually so much that goes into it. They give great techniques on how to make sure there are not any bubbles and defects in the mold. Life casting looks to be a hard thing to accomplish, but when its done its really astonishing.
