This was another assignment that i enjoyed. It was actually a challenge that required each group to create the tallest sculpture possible using $20 to buy the materials. So only $20................. what material would be the cheapest and structurally stable at great heights? The decision we eventually came to was to use newspaper which was relatively cheap and obviously accessible. We did a prototype first to work out the structural issues and then we did the final piece.

Red Bull had a doodle competition at UWI last week, so I thought it would be cool to try my hand at something. I don't doodle as much as I did in secondary school but I still see the importance of just creating random designs. These designs could be the catalyst for brilliant creative ideas in the future. I call this piece 'Exam stress, drink the best'

So this "Gaza and Gully" uprising that has been spreading from community to community got me thinking. I asked myself why we Trinidadians always following other people's culture? We are like a big piece of tracing paper. So you know the saying 'if you cant beat them join them so I decided to use the hype behind the 'Gaza and Gully' feud to promote my Key chains that represented the two waring fractions. I came up with this idea while just joking about the situation and thinking of creating something for a design exhibition UWI hosted. I got some valuable ideas from the guys at work and then decided to actually make the key chains. Now don't get me wrong, I am not promoting violence, so you would not find any key chains with weapons just cool hair styles, funky colors and funny expressions. Talk to meh if you want one!!
