The Final: Found objects sculpture, themes of puns and proverbs.
My chosen proverb was "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." It was a general statement on unhealthy consumption of food and drinks. I rarely eat apples, but I drink Dr. Pepper on a daily basis.
I created an apple out of Dr. Pepper cardboard boxes, and a label here and there. The stem was a straw, and the leaf was the 23 flavors logo. I decided to take a slice out of my apple to make it look more like an apple and less like a soccer ball. I also used the little pop tabs for seeds.
This project refined my cardboard sculpture skills, and helped me to think more conceptually. This project, while super time consuming, was not too difficult. Once I got the idea, I could picture the end result clearly, and just worked toward that image. It turned out the way I pictured, and I am really happy with the end product.
