Product design by recycling aluminum in a creative learning process in a museum
This research focuses on recycling and reutilizing and how artifacts can be created from aluminum waste. The project will use the Museum as case study and some research will also be conducted in Ghana to look at how the creative product making experience is executed in different ways. I will document the making of products with waste materials like aluminum waste in the creation of artifacts. I will try to answer the research question “How can products be designed by recycling aluminum in a creative learning process in a museum?” Using interviews, observation, workshops and co creations sections. Much research has been done on creativity in different ways, this project however will focus on designing products from aluminum. It will look at how aluminum can be used as a creative material for people, the project will exploit creativity from an aluminum museum and also factor Norwegian Cultural Rucksack program to demonstrate how creative product making experience is executed in different ways. It will also sample views and test from other people in general. I apply diverse ways in creativity and thoughtful discoveries to develop children’s potential. The aim of this project is to demonstrate creativity and its importance, how creativity affects people attitude in general and how it can be used as a tool to developing problem solving skills in people. I will then document results from research participants as well as my personal works in the form of concepts and solutions for the museum.
