The challenge was to create an exploded view of an object in isometric view, like LEGO, IKEA, etc. I would have loved to do an engine, but I ended up choosing a… siege engine. get it? My object to be dismembered is a catapult that works by a counterweight dropping instead of rope being twisted.
My design is a fairly simple trebuchet, but it has all the basic elements! Hope you enjoy!
The quote I selected is from the song “Heathens” by TWENTY ØNE PILØTS, specifically lines 12 and 13 of the song. “Just because we check the guns at the door; doesn’t mean our brains will change from hand grenades.” The quote is essentially saying ‘just because you took our tools away doesn’t mean we aren’t still psychotic.’ This quote is referencing the motley crew of criminals starring in Suicide Squad, but it has striking parallels to national matters right now such as gun control too.
