Class of: 2024

Major: Design and Technology BFA

Medium: Plastic and metal sculpture

Faculty: Rebekah Laskin

Prompt: In this project, we are asked to design and construct a polyhedral form using two durable planar materials. Whether the structure is closed or open, there should be something inside the polyhedral form.

This piece is an exercises for us to design and construct a polyhedral form that does not belong to regular polyhedral forms.The  rst thing in my head when I hear the word “polyhedral” is crystal. They are shining and fabulous under the light. I also inspired by the stained glass which shows different colors when the light come through it. The materials I used for this project are brass, plastic sheets and iron wires. Dreams are colorful and full of strange things. I think The colored plastic polyhedral creates amazing effect in the dark when light comes through it, just like our dreams at night, colorful and brings us imagination. The brass part at the bottom is used to make the whole sculpture stable and also creates a kind of retro style.
