My idea for this project was to make an instrument just using natural resources. I decided to use flowers as my primary resource because it is a natural resource that I could find easily from where I am living right now. My goal was to make a sound similar to the sounds from the forest. In the forest, when you step on to the leaves or branches, you can hear some rustling sound. I wanted to make similar sounds using dried flowers and make people feel that they are actually in the forest.
To make this mobile, I picked up some flowers from my backyard and started to dry them for more than one week. Also, I had some flowers that had dried before, so I decided to use them in my project. I tied up flowers with string and attached them to a thin board. To make a better sound, I made flowers to stay denser.
For my video, I took video and recording separately, and I added them together during editing. I took video and recording separately because while I was taking a video of this flower mobile, I noticed that the sounds are not coming out clearly. Also, the sound was very small. So I just did a separate recording using my phone and added together with the video.
