Creating Your Studio Setup

For this activity, you will be creating a space where you can work on your robot over the next two weeks. There are two parts to this activity:

Part 1: Space 

  1. To start off, you will need to find a space where you will be able to work, and to clear it off completely. Perhaps you have a desk or table that you can use, or maybe prefer to work on the floor. 
  2. Once you have staked your claim and cleared it off, you may want to clean it as well (either wipe it down, brush it off, etc.)
  3. Take a picture of your work surface to share with the studio 

Part 2: Materials

  1. In addition to the materials we have sent you, collect any other tools/supplies/ingredients that you will need for this studio. A list of recommended ingredients and kitchen equipment can be found here
  2. Organize those materials in your space, for how to organize, you can check out this video on Knolling
  3. Photograph the materials you have knolled to share with the studio

Deliverable

Once you complete this activity, be sure to take at least  (2) photos of your work surface and knolled materials. We will go over how to post documentations into the Response tab when we meet as a studio.

The Tasty Turtle Treat

Alex Shigueta

Alex Shigueta: The Tasty Turtle Treat: A delicious gingerbread cake that is designed to look like many turtles swimming in plastic wrappers, to raise awareness about the widespread issue of plastic pollution in the ocean.

Over one million aquatic animals die from the 100 million tons of plastic dumped in the ocean every single year. The Tasty Turtle Treat consists of many small chocolate turtles inserted into and on top of a gingerbread mold resembling six-pack soda rings. The turtles were created by pouring liquid chocolate into a silicone mold. The Tasty Turtle Treat arouses emotions when the viewer sees the small sea turtles that appear to be swimming, inside the outsize six-pack soda rings.

This dessert was created to put the people in the turtles' position by having to consume a  dessert in the form of plastic rings. The hope is that the dissonance created between the unfortunate tale of the turtles and the great taste can resolve into feeling good about “cleaning” up the plastic mess on the plate. It would be exceptional for that wonderful feeling of consuming The Tasty Turtle Treat to translate into stopping plastic pollution and letting the turtles swim in plastic-free water
