Brief: The End of the beggining

Micah Rysman

Smart-Clip© is an attachment that will transform gun safety by locking the gun's magazine in certain zones, most prominently school zones. The goal of this product is to promote safety while maintaining the right of a law-abiding American citizen to wield firearms. 

The product features a sleek design that uses a quick swivel attachment for the blocker. The swivel is triggered by a motor that utilizes geo-tracking to detect being within a school zone. This product is made for all gun users who want to be apart of a safer America. To achieve safety, however, the Smart-Clip© would require a government mandate to truly be successful. Eventually,  the goal is to expand the geo locking mechanism to protect large cities, sports venues, places of worship and other areas.

Portfolio Day

After the Final Presentation, you have the opportunity to consider your presentation in light of final feedback and discussion. You will spend additional time reviewing you presentations, refining you portfolio, and polishing you work before it is made public on the internet.

The Self Evaluation is an opportunity for you to reflect on your work during the Studio. Students and Coaches receive the same prompts and categories, and the students will evaluate their own progress and skill levels in Design Skills and Subject Skills applicable to the studio both numerically and textually. Through a narrative, you will also reflect on the quality and rigor of your work, give feedback on the studio, and have the opportunity to receive similar feedback directly from the coach.

Soaring Seeds

Uliana's Brief

Soaring Seeds is a  biodegradable plant terrarium which can be hung on trees. Within the terrarium lies a message and a seed to be planted, with the goal of reducing deforestation. 

Soaring Seeds is a series of multiple small terrariums that can be hung on trees. These terrariums contain seeds that will eventually be planted into the earth. Soaring Seeds is made out of bioplastic so that it can quickly degrade after being planted. The bioplastic forms a terrarium that encases all of the necessary ingredients for a healthy plant to live in. It also includes a drainage hole at the bottom. 

Soaring Seeds was created because of the overwhelming amount of trees being cut down every year. For example, we cut down 20 million trees per year to produce books. Soaring Seeds is marketed towards people living in urban environments. In urban spaces, people removed from the daily reality of natural forest loss. By interacting with the terrarium, the hope is they will learn some rudimentary knowledge about deforestation. With this knowledge, the goal is they will plant the seed in and become more aware of how they can contribute to transforming the earth.

Soaring Seeds is a project aiming to spread awareness of deforestation and its consequences by bringing attention to how consumerism impacts the environment,and providing the tools and motive to help. 

This project consists of biodegradable terrariums that are hung on trees, with graphics and catchphrases on them that invite people to make an impact on their environment by planting the terrarium in the ground. The terrariums are made out of bioplastic so that they will degrade faster than other materials, and they have a small hole in the bottom to allow rainwater to flow through the soil and hydrate the plant, without making the environment too damp or significantly lessening the amount of soil.

The terrariums are hung in city parks and other forested areas within urban spaces, and contain artificial seed pods. The writing on the terrariums encourage people to notice and plant them. The goal is for users to either take the contents home and plant the seed the terrarium contains, or tell others about the terrariums themselves, therefore spreading awareness about the issue.

Brief V2: A Shift in Power

Smart-Clip© is an all-new product that will transform gun safety as we know it as a society. This product can lock in certain zones, most prominently school zones. Eventually, we would like to expand this to protecting large cities, Sports venues, Places of worship and other areas. The goal of this product is to promote safety while maintaining the right of a law-abiding American citizen to wield firearms. 

The product features a sleek and incredible design that uses a quick swivel for the blocker. That is triggered by a motor. This product is made for all Gun users who want to be apart of a safer America, However, to truly achieve a safe Eastern Missouri border the Smart-Clip© would require a government mandate to truly be successful. The clip while not being even close to operational right now can still promote safer gun use, especially in schools.
