Day 22: Building a bridge across the continents!

Day 22’s assignment was: “Create a bridge. Connect two things in a creative way. It could be small enough for an amoeba or big enough for an elephant to cross.”

Thinking of what to do for this assignment was really tricky for me. It wasn’t until late at night when I was talking with my friend Aitak that inspiration struck.

I wish that ┬áthere was such a thing as bridges across all the continents (actually rather have instant teleportation, but that doesn’t help with today assignment).Since this isn’t going to happen, I thought I might as well represent my friendships with people across the globe by using a giant world map and then building bridges out of yarn between where I live and where they live.

I used three colors to signify how long I’ve been friends with them

White- Many years

Blue- 2 years

Light Purple- one year or less

This is one of those assignments you’d be better off seeing in person since the scale isn’t quite captured in a photo.

If I had more time I would have made  the bridges/connections between my friends, i.e. which friends know my other friends, but I will save that for another project.
