As our course continues, Zoe and Rebecca had another amazing idea for us on Thursday: to create a materials library for our design studio!

Material hunting in 1 hour

 

In teams, we need to find 100 materials in 1 hour,  together select 50 of the most interesting and check our findings with other groups to avoid repetition.

We analyzed the material qualities, thought of 5 questions to evaluate and test the properties of each material. Then we recorded and wrote down the answers on the labels, made some categories for our materials.

During our finding and selecting job, it was really interesting to realize that we could actually find a lot of weird or amazing things just on the street. And we found that some materials could be imagined how to be used, but some materials even hard to imagine the using way, although they already caused strong reactions. During the hunting, our team brought back a real piece of shit lol.
