Time Machine

Our latest project brief was to design and make our own 'time machine' with a specific design context. After looking at a few different areas for inspiration, I finally decided on the 1950s as my inspiration. The final outcome is heavily influenced by cars which were popular during this era - in particular the Studebaker. I have given the 'car' jets/propellors instead of wheels and decided to make it look old and rusty after a 'weathering' workshop with my tutor.

Main car body and seat made using blue foam. Front detail, headlights, rear lights and propellors sculpted and cast using fast cast resin.

Totally Unrelated

I know that this has nothing to do with SFX in any way but I thought I'd share a few images which I've been obsessing over for the past few hours. These are pieces by the designer Scott Ramsay Kyle, one of the fashion lecturers here and they are absolutely incredible. Its all good stuff but I only picked a few of my favourites, theres a lot more on his website worth a look

Definitely need this shirt
