Working on mind maps and different ways to get my ideas out and putting them up on my wall. Trying to narrow in on the intentions to help to guide the form and functions of my sketches. Also using my materials list to help me think about which electronic components can help relay certain calming mechanisms. Finished writing my review of Ramon Telfer's products for 399 Design Review essay.
I am starting to think that the final form doesn't have to be precious metal, that it could be rubber or a more flexible material, and even in combination with metals. Metal might come off too cold and rigid, where as a more malleable material might be more approachable for the function. I am thinking about the different intentions of the products and I have narrowed it into 3 potential categories of coping, tracking and mindfulness.
