Lantern: 1999 - Home Shop
This is an extension of the sound project for freshman design studio 1. The other section had the assignment of making an object that made light, while my section had the responsibility of doing it with sound. I liked the idea of the project so much that I made this over my summer break. It's supposed to spiral open like a flower, but it's really just a full size model, and doesn't work. The finished product would have a transparent elastic skin, so when closed it would glow, and when open it would be an umbrella of light. It is somewhat inspired by Nagouchi's akari lamps, but far less ethereal.
