When I saw these vases that are modelled after a person’s profile, I thought, “Man, how very Escher, I want one!”
The whole “Vase or profile” deal is a pretty cool use of negative and positive space if it hasn’t become so kitsch thanks to the blessing of forwards, which manage to tack even the awesomest stuff up. But still, equipping this concept in the real phsyical world is a fascinating idea, is it not? Especially when it’s presonalized to your own profile!
At 150 bucks though, it is way over priced for an ugly wooden vase, cool concept or otherwise. So I thought I’d equip my much loved Adobe Suite to check out how my profile would look as a vase (Illustrator rocks doesn’t it?), only to realize that I absolutly hate my profile.
Check that out! That’s not something I would display. Yeah, no $150 dollar vase for me.
Yet again, I spent an entire year in an Fine Arts Foundation year, and I absolutely miss getting my hands dirty with charcoal and clay, so maybe that should be an experiment I should undertake. It really should be quite simple… Man… I also miss drawing! We spent a while drawing selfportraits with mirrors and stuff, I think I drew my profile once. I had promised myself after I finished that year that I will continue to draw, but I haven’t really sat down and drawn anything ever since. That’s terrible isn’t it? But first off, I need to finish all my midterm projects then redesign this blog and migrate to WordPress.
