Day 3

The third day activity was initially to create a structure made from spaghetti using a glue gun that would hold 3 balls (not touching each other).

Before we started creating the structure, we had to draw several designs in our sketchbook, of al the different possible structures that could hold the balls. Making these sketches helped me during the 3D development as I had a clear idea on how to start and an image on how the structure would look like.

The difficulty was working with spaghetti as they needed to break, and sometimes not stick properly between each other.

Although I had many problems during the creation of the structure, I was pleased with the final piece as it architectonically looked appealing.

The most challenging thing after proving that our structure could hold the tree balls separate was too reforce the piece. With paper we had to find a solution and cover the structure so it would not break when a heavy object was dropped on it.

I found it difficult to no break the structure when I was covering it in paper. To be assured that it would not be that easy to destroy I rolled up paper which I introduced into the structure so when the heavy object was dropped it would impact on the reinforced rolls and not directly onto the spaghetti structure.

  1. This post is really detailed and allows me to be a part of the creation of your 3D structure. The use of lighting in your photography works well as it gives the structure a really powerful image despite that it is made from spaghetti. I really love your style and the preciseness of your work however if I had to suggest an improvement, it would possibly be to try working in a slightly looser way once in a while just to see if you could get any further inspiration from it.
