In Contact with Nature…..Guest Blogger – Elisa Miller
Level 4 Experimental Research for Advanced Design – Elisa Miller
I chose Nature’s way of attachment and detachment for a design theme because I live close to nature. Every day I can be in contact with nature, see, learn, etc.
My personal approach – after I see something I like visually – is to try to understand what is going on. For instance, why is the knot still attached when the whole stump is in decay? I enjoy the very detail of knowing how nature works. I remember learning how the silk on an ear of corn works – each strand of silk creates ONE kernel on the ear of corn. I then remember the silk strands, how they flow, they are so beautiful and graceful and that inhabits my world when I am designing.
