Second Semester Lee Dejasu Spatial Final:
In response to the prompt, "antique fragments of summer", I collaborated with Aaron Teves to create the ultimate summer experience on a portable scale. The miniature tree house represents the nostalgia of summer, filled with memories from adventures past. Aaron and I worked closely to mimic a real tree house's design, working from our own knowledge of houses and accommodating for branches.
The house is 13'x10'x 13' (with a 1 ft. :1 in. scale) , completed using birch, bass and balsa wood. The roof is done in a copper sticker sheet and the interior elements are done in stained birch. All the individual pieces within the house are hand made; the books are transfers onto wood, clothing and food is hand painted with gouache on bristol, and the skateboard, guitar and picnic basket are laser cut bass wood.
