Idea:

These wind chimes will include a multitude of different objects and materials, all things that can be found easily in most cases. All the items will be made of wood and metal, and each piece will be completely varied. No two parts will be the same.

Importance:

This varied mix of differing objects and materials will portray the feeling of diversity that is required. The reason for this diversity is to explain how the earth is slowly losing many of its numerous species. Every year 10,000 species go extinct on average. This is magnitude of degradation upon the earth that is mostly derived from human activities is horrendous and must come to an end. The metals and wood are there to symbolize two very necessary and non-renewable resources. Both of these sources of natural capital are diminishing from the planet at a rapid rate.

Construct:

The initial base of the chimes will be fashioned out of some type of wood and will have strings attached around its edges. These strings will then feature many metallic objects that dangle freely but are connected firmly to the strings. The metallic pieces will include computer parts, random scrap metal, and other various but accessible components.
