What have I done today:
- Contextual practice
- Testing new material
Understanding the materials in different areas:
- Physical properties
- Cultural interpretation
- Effect to my project
Materials that I choose to analyse:
- Plastic PVC washing line
- Plastic tube
I have more basic understanding of my chosen materials and also considering the sustainability of them. I am interested in up-cycled materials so this section somehow gives me a formate of how to record a material. I think the most difficult part of this practice is to identify how is the material made.
- Experiment with plastic tube
I am curious about using the same banding skill on plastic tube. Therefore I cut the plastic tube into several fragments. I then used rubber band to tie the tube but I was not satisfied with the fold part because it was too thick and the tube was too thick as well. Considering the cost of plastic tube I prefer the gardening wire which I purchased from pound land. What's more, I am looking for a material that is sharp and the tube just not the material I am looking for.
