Placed an order of various Smooth-On materials, some of which are flexible and some of which are more rigid to experiment with. Met with John Luther to discuss course selection for next semester. Continued to work on rough draft for ARTDES 399 where we are writing mock grant proposals and research for those proposals, it is really helping me to ask deep questions and will ultimately help me with writing my thesis.
I am really thinking about different materials and how forms can have different tactile textures that might give off different feelings. I am considering more modular pieces similar to my digifab project from last year where I 3d printed fidget rings that had modular tops so the wearer could swap out the one they needed for that moment. Perhaps the textures and materials of the wearables could be swapped out somehow for different needs?
