In Maggie Macnab’s “Design by Nature,” she states that “Design personifies the genesis of your origins—energy and matter—by transforming perceptions into real-world results” and that your life is “understood and responded to according to how you perceive the world presented around you.”
Ever since I was young, music has been an important part of my life. It influences most everything I do. For this piece, I recreated my name on a guitar as a metaphor to represent who I am. The yarn that makes up my name is used to represent guitar string because I am one with the guitar when I play it. The points are a circle to represent the tuners at the top of the guitar, which shows how the guitar keeps me in tune with myself. The square boxes around the circles have a grainy texture and contrast the yellow surface of the guitar.
