Pathways and Edges Process
For the Desert group, we decided to make platforms with waves along the top and sides, to resemble the wave texture in the sand of the desert. Our group used blue foam with wave-like cutouts. The first model was just practice. We realized that the foam makes the texture rough and that hollowing out the inside did not make it sturdy enough to withstand time and weather. We also did not link the foam pieces together, so the edges stuck out and made distinct walls along the corners. We learned a lot from this practice model and now know what to fix for the final platform.
