    Well-being, Industrial Design


    March 9th 2009: It was a very helpful experience to receive feedback from people in different professions in terms of their perspectives and professional knowledge. I was interesting that I didn't receive a consistent comment form people, but various comments. In general people think I'm on something, but I need to keep going on the project. Some people are concerning if I can have consistent materials from manufacture waste stream. Some others want me to think about if my product can really be manufacture-able.

    I feel I need to jump into the deep water and surprise myself with a wild and crazy idea for the project. I think I have been thinking the safe way to get out or end up this project. After all of the talking with people, I need to step back a little bit to think about the overall picture of my project again in order to narrow it down to the most meaningful result.

  • The board presentation looked very nice - I liked how you layered the sketches and photos, it gave the board a lot of visual depth.

    Your argument is where I think your project is having some issues, and perhaps this is where the questions about your solution are hinged. Your presentation is about why trees are important -- but this is not really the essence of your project. You should be discussing how your design addresses the issue of deforestation/waste. How do your modules create less waste? How do they respond formally to the material in the waste stream?

    I am concerned about the implications of this product at full scale. How much glue is required to actually make this? I think you need to prove through some full scale partial models that this idea does work -- I think you will find that some useful changes can be made.
