The inspiration behind my design comes from the concept of timelessness. The overall shape is made up of repeating units whose profile resembles the mathematical symbol of infinity, but rotated by 90 degrees. Infinity is often treated as a number and a concept of time, hence the arrangement resembling an hourglass. Coincidentally, an hourglass itself can be used indefinitely simply by inverting it. Overall, this concept is a reflection of how the field of engineering has wide-reaching and somewhat infinite outreach in its implications on society. In an individual’s lifetime, a single contribution has the ability to withstand time, affect lives for generations and form the basis of future solutions to developing problems.
