NCAD brief – Seeds in catapults

In my second worksheet for this exercise (Section B – Creative Process in the NCAD brief) I made a connection between seeds (a food item) and a catapult (a mechanism item). The seeds of the geranium behave like spring catapults when its time to disperse them.

The NCAD brief says: Look again at the themes for the brief, and the mind-maps you’ve made. Think about the possibilities if any two of your items (chosen from different mind-maps) were to interact, borrow from or influence each other.
For example: what is the visual or physical result of a piece of food becoming a mechanism? Could a mechanism become a piece of food? There are no ‘correct’ answers or expected responses. We would like to see what you come up with.
We would like you to deliver your ideas through what we call ‘Ideas Worksheets’. Ideas Worksheets are a way of visually ‘thinking out loud’.
On a worksheet, we would like you to use drawings, diagrams and short notes to explain your ideas visually.
A good worksheet is one where your ideas are clear and understandable, without anyone having to explain in words what you have in mind.
We would like you to make three connections.

So what happens if a lollipop took on some of the characteristics of a lock and vice versa? Remember the arrows work in
both directions (food becoming a mechanism can be different to a mechanism becoming food)
These are only examples – you should come up with your own ideas.
