Step 1: OBSERVE
KNOW YOUR VEGETABLE.
Take the aubergine and observe it. What properties make the essence of it? color, texture, size?
Step 2: SLICE
DISSECT YOUR VEGETABLE.
When we slice the aubergine, the inital object obtains a completely new form and texture
Step 3: RECOMPOSE
RETHINK YOUR VEGETABLE FROM SCRATCH.
Maintaing the elegance and smoothness of the aubergine's shape, an entirely new object is created tilting weaving slender slices with each other. What was the strong skin of the aubergine becomes a hard cardboard, while the soft flesh turns into foam rubber
Step 4: DECONTEXTUALIZE
TRY IF YOUR NEW COMPOSITION CAN SO SOMETHING MORE.
The aubergine becomes a sculpture, the sculpture becomes an oppulent bracelet.
