Rainey A: A bright sun to accompany our paper moons
Thanks to some fishing wire and a stepladder, our paper moons from last weekend have found their places in our sky! However, as we looked up at them yesterday we realized something was missing from our nighttime scene, the light! We brainstormed a couple ideas, dialoguing about how to incorporate a light source into our design.
Elena: How can we add light?
Brigitte: So Lochie and CC say the light on the moon comes from the…
CC: outside from the sun
Lochie: Yeah we need to make a paper, yellow sun
For some, the idea to make a paper sun was a no brainer, but for others it didn’t feel like an authentic enough form of light.
Jack: Wait, wait, we could try to just make some playdough kind of pladough that sticks to a phone on each, one side (of each moon) to try to shine light.
Elena: So Jack’s idea is that we could put a flashlight on each of the moons to shine a light, thats a great idea. Does anyone have any other ideas?
Lochie: connect a light and then, and then make light?
Jack: yeah but we need different kinds
We brainstormed a little more about how to add light to our moons, but we decided we needed something to connect our lights to, so again we returned to the paper sun idea. We decided to make them the same way as we did our paper moons, using the pulp and screen press technique.
Lochie: No, no let's get all paper. A lot of yellow paper and then put it in the blender and then turn it on and then it will like make paper.
