From Found to Functional

  • From Found to Functional 

  • Project Parameters: Get one item from the recycling center and create experiments testing out all the different characteristics and properties of the material. After testing, make a functional item that uses your experiments. 

  • Experiments Using Webbing Material    
  • Experiment One: Made from cutting the individual sections of the webbing and separating them into strips  
  • Experiment Two: Grommet test 
  • Experiment Three: Used a repeated looped shape stacked on-top of its self 
  • Experiment Four: Seared ends of the the webbing to reduce fraying  
  • Experiment Five: Weaving test 
  • Using these five experiments as my main inspiration for my mask, I started to make the prototype 
  • First Prototype
  • Final
