I've gotta say that this work was really enlightening for me, and far more enjoyable than I could have imagined. I got really invested in my models, and spent two whole days hand cutting out each of the parts, glueing things together, and seeing how pristine of forms I could make with only chipboard, duct tape, cardboard, paper, and glue. I am now convinced that you could make absolutely anything from those materials, and I will probably try in the future.
Anyways, here are some of the links I looked at and some images that inspired form. Nothing elaborate, just interesting. Also, after that, are the notes we wrote on the white board during our first meeting, then some photos of our group as we worked, and more white board work that got us to our final product.
