Ideas for Gregor's Room Assignment

 "Once upon a time, when I was but a wee child of 8 or 9, I was obsessed with making dioramas. My Barbies never had any pedestrian, store bought plastic Dream Houses — no way. Instead, I lovingly dressed them in outfits hand sewn from foil and paper towels, and then constructed elaborate houses made of cardboard, which I furnished with notebook paper couches and armories. Nothing but the best for Barbie, right? Well, she seemed to like it. Years later, when I started school for photography I resurrected my love for scotch tape, staples and plain paper, and for a long time I never photographed anything that had not been cut and formed by my own hands. The net result went something like this:

The sculptures below use cardboard and tape. However, ideas can be gleaned for the Gregor's Room Assignment.

The idea of "rolling" the paper can be used for Gregor's Room Assignment. 
If you roll the paper tight, you create a strong cylinder beam.

Inspires idea to fold pieces of paper and then stack folded pieces to achieve a 3D form. 
Can use slit and tab to keep all folded pieces together.

Laces and Lace Holes, In-Process Examples for Masking Tape Shoes


Lace Hole Grommet:
A raised edge around the lace hole.

Use leather hole punch and hammer to make lace holes.
The hole punch and hammer available in the Wood Shop. 
See Russell Maycumber, Wood Shop manager. 

**Important**: 
You have to punch the lace holes before you attach the panel shape to the shoe. 




























No Lace Hole Grommet:
This means the lace hole is not surrounded by a metal circle. 

Use a nail and hammer to make lace holes.
Nails and hammer available in the Wood Shop. 
See Russell Maycumber, Wood Shop manager. 

**Important**: 
You have to hammer the lace holes before you attach the panel shape to the shoe.
