I chose to use nylon and tight material because, it seems to be an item that women have to buy and instantly become disposable due to runs and rips in them. I figured Nylons and tights would be easy to get ahold of considering how quickly girls go through nylons, I bought a few to add interest and texture to the sphere. I also took advantages of my resources and grabbed about 1/2 a box of Peds from Payless, the lady working there looked at me kinda funny but I smiled and ran out, they are free for the public.

I covered the sphere with black nylon until the sphere could not be seen. Then, with the assistance of my roommate I sewed on bunches of nylons and tights in rose shaped bunches. It became more difficult to sew as the sphere became more covered.

I am proud to say that my texture sphere was displayed!

TACTILE TEXTURE Assignment:

Texture involves the tactile sense, or sense of touch. As infants, we touch before we see, and through the years the role of texture in our lives remains a vital one. Often this tactile experience translates visually as well, with deep shadows within crevices creating a powerful visual texture.

With these thoughts in mind, create a composition on a Styrofoam ball no smaller than 4 inches in diameter. You may create your composition on a larger sphere, if you so choose. You may use any media of choice, and/or a combination of media. However, the finished product must be well designed, and be of secure construction.

OBJECTIVE:

To expand the studentʼs appreciation for the tactile sense in reference to texture.

To provide an opportunity for the student to design a composition that has artistic and creative merit.

To create a composition that not only provides a tactile texture experience, but also a visual texture experience.
