Finding Inspiration

As designers we are often asked to create work within extremely limited budgets. This exercise aims to capture the transformative potential of repetition as a strategy for creating compelling work for a low cost. This project was inspired by work such as that of artists Tara Donovan or Monika Grzymala who through repetition make objects such as thousands of pencils and black tape into works of art. Students were asked to find a cheap and readily available object; preferably something that would otherwise would become trash and assemble it into a sample (0.5 x 0.5 meters) of what could be a large wall in an architecture project (5 x 3 meters).
