Unconventional materials

Develop art making skills
I learned in this project that nothing lasts forever also how to create illusions. This piece got torn down by a janitor but it's ok because even though I didn't get a picture it was nice while it lasted. I created an illusion by twirling the computer tape in a spiral so it looks like different circles. I gained skill with the ribbon like material of the tape. I'm use to the ribbon feel but was unfamiliar with the way it bends and such.
Communicate message through art
The message I was trying to deliver was that even though event in life and in history seem insignificant to each other they are all connected in some way. Another ,that was unintentional, is nothing lasts forever. I've learned the second one alot this semester because most of my pieces get destroyed but it helps me learn that message. As for the first one I was thinking that everything really was connected such as the butterfly effect (you kill a butterfly in the past it effects someone being born in the future). This issue is everyone thinks that history is in 1 straight line but it's not its a whole Web that the Nepolian era can connect to the World War I I era.
I definitely had some help from a classmate. Not only did he help me thing of other ways to do it he helped hold things up and keep them in place. Also I had my work right behind the teachers desk so she would critique it and help me in the same way Bailey did. It really helped my creative process having all of the people help me with the spider web.
