Here is a Christmas gift that I made for my friend Michael. (He was nice enough to take a picture of it and send it to me.) My idea in making this object was to make a funny and cute sculpture that looked like an actual distortion pedal, because I certainly wasn’t going to buy him one. This gave me an idea for a possible lesson plan for maybe middle school, or high school students. I think it could be an amazing adventure to just have students re-make their favorite electronics using cardboard and paint. It would bring their own interests into the classroom and also give them a chance to reflect on the digital world we live in.
