Secret project

This was a fun little side project. It's supposed to be a bit of the interior of a starship, and it was purely an experiment to see if it would work. Everything that's on here is basically trash: you know those plastic bubble packages that pretty much everything comes in these days? I basically cut a bunch of those out and hot-glued them to a plastic board-- if you look closely, you can see the Oscar Meyer logo from some Lunchables packs, and the top off of a bottle of shampoo. There's a bit more: an old tool container, some cheap plastic tubing and weatherstripping, bits of a Propel Fitness Water bottle... it's all literally junk. And it looked like crap, too, until I painted it with some spray paint that I found in the hardware store that's meant to spray on plastic.

Suddenly it takes on this quality where it becomes cohesive, and it actually looks like something. The transformation is amazing, and the picture doesn't do it justice. For a few hours work and a few months of collecting packing materials, this worked a hell of a lot better than I ever thought it would.
