Documentation of Product
My final products are two models of mechanical cities inspired by watch designs from many different cultures. These models were made from foam-core and wood. My product demonstrates the relationship between city, clock and time. I took different watches from different culture (cities and countries) and mixed them into the architecture of there cultural. My models showes that different cultures have a great individuality throw design, watch making and history. Each cultural has its’ own designs. For my product I used Google earth to search the imagines about the piece of lands from different countries. And then I searched the watch design from the countries that I did screen shot. Based on these images about pieces of lands and the watches, I draw the landscape and watches on my sketchbook. And then I pick some good design from my sketchbook and measure their size for making the architecture models. After that I used the foam-core and wood to make my final products
