We chose to make this sculpture because it represents an item in our sense of style. Jada and I both like the Chuck Taylor Brand because it represents us growing up and comfort. Chuck Taylors often remind us of the summer activities we often did when we were young. Adding the lights to the shoe shows how we want to grow out of old things and make our mark on the world. Also, we chose this sculpture because adding lights is easier than any other object we thought of with the holes on the side of the shoe.

We chose a hat for our project because we both like hats. Also, we both enjoy watching hockey and like the Flyers. We thought that this was a good way to combine the things we love. The hat represents me because I really like the flyers (David). The hat represents me because I used to wear hats all of the time and hockey is one of my favorite sports to watch (Mike).
We choose to make a mini Christmas tree because we thought that the Christmas tree would be much more reasonable. When we were going over the guidelines for this project we saw that all the lights had to last at least 24 hours or more. With the chandelier it required more battery power then if we were to make our Christmas tree. Our project says something about us because Grace and I both really enjoy December and having Christmas, New Years, and Alexis’ birthday (on 12/31) all in one month. We decided to make a Christmas tree to show our love for this month. We also thought that if we were to make a Christmas tree, we would be able to use it every year, even after this project was over.
