Baguette Me Not? The Pie Who Loved Me? Roll with it? The Yeast Side? Bready or not? It hurts.

The bakery designing and making is in full swing! Taken inspiration from a ready built, designed and decorated bakery. Separate post for the making of, that's going to be hefty!

Beautiful quote from Dante Brebner;

"If you live in an environment of constantly increasing information, action, speed, and density, you can focus people’s attention in one of two ways: by going bigger... like with an explosion... or by going small. Put the world behind a tiny frame/screen (handheld technology perhaps) and suddenly, by focusing smaller and blocking out the imagined dead weight of the world around us, we can manage to take in even more information, do more, feel bigger, lighter, move faster... even to a pathological degree. The tiny scale and concealed presentation of my work appeals possibly to a similar kind of focus, but with more conspicuous physical effort and other antidotes. It cannot be viewed casually, easily, or all at once. It asks to be seen in person, for the viewer to slow down, look again... all with no apparent payback. No questions answered or narratives clarified. It is an invitation to pause, look with intent and with uncertainty, synthesizing pathways through these little worlds from one's own associations... and take note of the space we occupy while exploring a space we cannot."

Making a Porsche 356 Speedster, get ready to get orange!

Here are the making of sheets of my final model, there was an initial model that didn't get that far but was good practice and helped the second attempt become such a success.

Car puns are exhausting.

So here's the plan folks! I compiled some drawings, rough sketches and some research on the Porsche 356 Speedster, get used to looking at the car and to start building an idea in my head the best way to go about making it. 

I decided to look at a website that was selling one to get some detailed pictures of the cars turnaround, close-ups of the inside because this will become my reference. Parts of the design will be adapted accordingly but these are the photos that will heavily influence the final outcome.
