Recent studio project, an AIDS Memorial for the Ithaca College campus, which had quite a few professors and some students die of the disease in the 80s.
The illuminated model:
Yes, my model lit up. It took forever to make. You think this is cool, one of my classmates had a model with a fountain/stream... with real running water. And then he added dry ice to show how it would look in wintertime (the water would be geothermally heated so that it would run year long, and thus create steam/mist in winter). I wish I had a picture of his model to share!
More to come soon.
