Syd Mead Box

At the end of my sophomore year of college I did this group project with my friends Hugh, Kenny and Leonardo. We were supposed to create a 7" cube that evoked the work of a famous designer, essentially a branding exercise. We chose Syd Mead, specifically his Tron era stuff. We got a little ambitious using hand-milled aluminum. I also almost killed myself wiring the lighting, you can see the scoring where electricity arced of the case. It was totally worth it though as every class after us has been biting our style on this project. I loved making this, but I can't really use it in my portfolio since it doesn't really do anything besides try to burn down your house (it gets really hot while its on). Apologies to Syd Mead.
