Given our recent readings on sketching and prototyping, I wanted to create a prototype for visualizing and changing texture using an optical tool. My constraints are still to use an organic subject matter, in this case an orange. I first made simple sketches of the cross section of an orange to depict the difference in its internal structure when cut along a sagittal and transverse plane. I then distorted the perception of its texture by applying two optic filters: a glass filled with water, and my iPhone lens. The way I perceive the object has now been transformed.
