terrible picture of progress

This is a picture of the feelology throw pillow experiment which I started yesterday. It looks pretty good for a test, but the quality of the picture is awful.

A new lot of cookies in plastic and felt

These are the new cookies that I mentioned last week. Some are shiny and bright. and some are crystal clear. They add a bit of variety to the previously all black selection. They are available as Key chains, Pendants, or Charms. I also made some that are clear. There are also a bunch of over sized felt cookies which I still don't know how to use.

The photographs of the cookies came out really well (because my mother helped me). Look at this bowl of clear ones. It looks like it came right out of a raytracer.

In addition to the new acrylic cookies, I have made an additional 39 large record cookies and 100 small cookies. Hand cutting was a little inefficient for these large quantities and new materials, so I switched over to laser cutting the circles. This really helped my success rate for hand folding the cookies because the rounder the cookie blank is the easier it is to fold. Unfortunately the small record cookies deform a bit in the oven, so there are a few really awkward looking fortunes in the bunch.

These are made from white industrial felt.
They are very large. I have no idea what to use them for.

In school, I seem to have learned to be productive.

Since I got home on Tuesday I have applied for 5 jobs, made over 200 fortune cookies in various materials, and ordered materials to start a line of feelology products, manufactured by me.

Unfortunately I still have not done my laundry.

Wabi Sabi

Wabi sabi is the new design philosophy which I would like to explore. Since I have technically finished school, I am going to be spending my time looking for work. But in the long term, I am going to look into the aesthetic and functional qualities of objects as time passes.

This is the image that caused my interest. This old, worn phone looks a lot better than the new one. The same is true for leather goods and jeans. I wonder how this concept can be transferred to mass produced products in a purposeful way.

Is it possible for objects to develop custom functionality with age?

This is the sun rising. I am going to go to bed now for a few hours.
