Replicas Project Due: Jan 31

Looking at the world around you, re-make an object, preferably one that exists in the public sphere (what is a public? Good question! We will discuss...), out of an unlikely material, and in an unlikely scale.
Photograph the object next to/near its original inspiration. Observe & document how the public reacts. Bring it to class on Jan 31st for a critique, along with the documentation posted to the blog.
Think about:
Attention to detail/craftspersonship
Changing meaning & function through material use & play in scale
What kind of playfulness (or lack thereof) does a particular medium/scale embody?

(Almost) any material is welcome, so if you have questions, let me know, and I can demonstrate.
