I made the large diamond in the first image for my 3D design final, and then, using my own personal time, turned the project into a photo shoot. The criteria for the project was a concept on consumerism, in which 1000 objects must be used. I chose to use 1000 acrylic diamonds in this piece, which the majority of were used in the final image, where the girl is trapped inside a circle of diamonds. I chose the concept of blood diamonds to raise awareness on the issue. I created the fake blood using maple syrup, blue gatorade, and red and green food coloring. I then glued 600 acrylic diamonds together to create the first large diamond, which took a total of ten hours. And then finally arranged a photo shoot with a model.
