"The Fun theory" was a theory a group of people thought that if you make a usually boring or not fun activity fun, people will want to do it more. This theory was tested out on everyday people, the task was to make people want to take the stairs instead on a escalator. By making the stairs sound like a piano every time someone would touch a step, caused people to want to try it out. in the end there were more people end up walking up the stairs then the escalator. If i was to test out "The fun theory" out i think i use int in the restroom, i would make music come when someone washed their hands, or when someone through trash away. Making people want to do it more often.
In the ted talk "embrace the shake", Phil Hansen is a student in art school, when he starts to have a shake in his hand. Making it hard for him to draw as little as a line. After trying to fix it, he drops out of school,and stops doing what he loves, art. Until his neurologist made a "simple suggestion: embrace this limitation ... and transcend it." So that's what he did, making master pieces, with the shake in his hand. His shake ending up making him an even better artist towards the end, in the end Phil Hansen finally discovered that if you love something you won't let it go.
In the beginning i was really stuck on what i wanted to do, i wanted to make something a little different but still cute. After looking at tons of picture i decided to make the Porcupine. I sketched it out making sure to get the little details in. When i started to paint the pumpkin i picked out, it was smooth sealing through almost the whole project.
Towards the middle i started having trouble making the eyes and nose, i wanted to make them big , but not so big that they looked odd. so i started looking for objects that were the right size to fit the face of the porcupine. then i found a sponge that was just right,and after putting the eyes and nose on. It was almost done. i just needed the main piece or pieces to top it off, the spikes.
last i made the skikes they were made of of tooth picks, that were pushed in to the pumpkins,In the end it was a good project and it was really fun,also creative, if i could do it again i would. the only thing i wish we did have was more supplies. overall i like the project.
