I find that some of my most exciting design happens when I think in context of time and 3-dimensional space. I'm excited by the possiblility for engagement that exists between things that are flat and things that have form.
This 20-sided map-ball is a conceptual piece that explains my route home from one my classrooms on Oregon State's campus. The orange lines represent walking and the blue lines represent riding my bike. I wanted to create an engaging and fun experience for whoever picked up this piece and also to give a sense of the navigational image I have of myself when I'm travelling somewhere. For me, direction isn't always clear and logical. It depends a lot on gut feeling and fleeting memories. I wanted to communicate the idea certain parts of a journey might feel shorter or less complicated than others, even if that isn't exactly how they are in real life.
