My idea for the Structure Project
For my design, I originally sketched out a house because I couldn’t think of anything else. But then it expanded to a castle with people and a dragon on top of it along with a moat. There are little windows on the castle to look inside of it and see multi-colored lights. How to get the lights to show up? I have no clue. When the sun hits a piece of acrylic, the light should bounce off and hit another piece of acrylic and so on. Does light even bounce off of acrylic??? I’d be happy settling with something similar to a kaleidoscope.
A week or two ago, I had tested how pieces of acrylic would interact with the light. I taped four different colors of acrylics along with a white one into a cardboard rectangle with no top or bottom. I cut a hole into the rectangle as a viewing window, but that idea didn’t work out. But when I adjusted the rectangle a bit, the acrylics created a sort of stained-glass window on the ground due to the light. Now if only I can figure out how to get the design to show on the inside.
