The Mad Scientist’s Lab

My third project was a submission for a book nook contest. The theme was The Mad Scientist’s Lab and with only a few months in which to complete the project, I maximized my efforts by relying on found objects and some accelerated building methods.

The end result was a very satisfying second-place finish.

In the context of a contest, I was able to experiment and expand my knowledge base by trying techniques I had not yet employed; something I considered too risky when in the middle of a deadline-driven client project.

Further, I challenged myself to use as little new material as possible, relying instead on found objects which I could repurpose into new materials. My recycle bin became one of my primary resources.
