Wrapping Project : Part 1.

This is part one of the 'Wrapping' project. The first image is the model made of 400 wooden blocks. We were instructed to build a model that represented a numerical pattern. I chose the Butterfly Effect and specifically how Historical American Events (from 1960-today) affects the music of the decade, and how the music derived from historical events affects drug use.

The next step of the project was to 'wrap' the project in any way you see fit. I chose to use different colored string to emulate the Butterfly Effect and how one strand can affect another part of the project.

After wrapping the model, we were instructed to have a flat pattern representing the wrapping itself. I chose to take photos in plan view and trace over the lines and patterns that the string created to come up with the various patterns you see above.
