This is a development from the concept 5 with the stacked hexagon shapes, inspired by honey comb to that connect together to complete the circuit or then plays sound. In feedback I was asked to consider the form of the hexagons, they are quit simplistic, geometric clunky blocks which don’t really express the notion of something being natural and organic.
Development: In order to develop the first model I thought of designing a shell like Mp2 player that you would project sound out of the funnel like shape. It could be made using 123D make, still incorporating the stacked design which together build the form of a shell.
I wanted to develop the idea of using paper but for the whole model and so looked towards origami paper folding for the construction of my design. I could raster the paper to produce a pattern/print and from there i would create the design. I want to develop something that expands or has the notion of growing.
In this origami design I like how the form appears to be growing, it isnt symmetrical and the pyramids look additive as if they are continuing to be added to the design. I want to have it sitting on the ground o it represents the idea of nature growing from the earth. It will have a pulley system that will raise a metal ball and complete a circuit that is built inside of the form. The whole cloud will be a ‘speaker’ with the speaker inbuilt inside and has the noise coming out of the whole design body.
