I decided to focus my project on the matter of crystals and jewels. I find crystals to possess a spirit defined by people, places, and spaces. For example, I chose to scan a clear quartz in hopes of translating this mineral into a 3D space. Clear quartz tends to come in various sizes and geometry, and I find that in terms of these elements, architects and designers can alter or find inspiration in the overall design. My second object is an aftermath in which industries engage in jewelry making. Together I have a fixed pendant in the form of a pyramid, as well as a crystal embedded tennis chain. In the means of scanning, I came across certain phenomena such as the reflection of light which is caused by the jewels themselves. I also experienced challenges in tracing the geometry. Although it may not be precise, I admire the output due to its fossil-like nature. In my opinion, it adds more value to what this object is. My last model is incomplete due to errors in Autodesk recap. I chose to take several shots of what is a kitchen in need of restoration. The ceiling is in need of repair, the walls are stained and discolored, and nearly everything is destroyed. However, I find the same natural beauty in what is made of a clear quartz and the remodeling of what was into a precious jewel. I believe that this approach to design can advocate for spaces such as this one to be viewed and restored to a healthy environment.
