This is what I managed to achieve when I introduced my can to the tools. I decided that I would
use this object as my one to cut in half (a class objective) as I was then going to try out one of my
ideas from a brainstorm.
I had initially planned to cut the can exactly in half but because the tin snips were difficult to control
I decided to use that to my advantage thinking that if each tab varied in length it might create a
different sound when plucked. After cutting the can in two I carried on making incisions toward
the base – each one a different width and length.
The who point of this experiment was that I thought as I pulled down each tab and let it go it
would vibrate making noise, each tab thicker or thinner would make a different sound.
How ever it turns out the tin is too thick and doesn’t vibrate enough to make sound that could
be used in a performance.
