DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Paths of Light

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Dvd Box

INSPIRATION:
"Paths of Light" short animation by Nelson Fernandes Aka Zina Caramelo (Visual artist) www.nelson-zina.com

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The best way to hold the short animation Paths of Light by Zina Caramelo was to ensure that the DVD had a beautiful case to match. The packaging actually looks like it was plucked from the woods and moulded to form a DVD. On the outside, various lines are visible, almost appearing as small trees growing up the side of the case. The wooden exterior also helps to give it an extremely naturalistic look. Paths of Light is an extreme update from the cases many saw for CDs in the 1990s, which usually consisted of basic plastic with a paper package to explain the contents inside. (by TrendHunter)

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
To open the box you should hold the case and simultaneously press the center button. The box should be opened on a flat surface.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
The medium used was a single wooden plank on which he reinvented/unrolled all his visual and poetic discourse, using multiple techniques. This life cycle resulted in a box, whose construction involved two distinct stages: a mechanical one and a manual one. The first stage - the mechanical one - involved cutting and laser printing operations (1 hour and 30 minutes) to produce 6 different pieces. The last stage - the manual one - involved the exploration of collage techniques using those 6 pieces, a drying period and a sandpaper finishing to create the final version. Each box is unique.
