Denise Flasz

Hello! My name is Denise Flasz, I was born in Caracas, Venezuela but I currently live in NYC. I got my BFA in illustration at the Instituto de Diseño de Caracas,and then I decided to do an MFA in Multimedia design at the Centro de diseño digital. After all this college experience and some freelancing I worked for almost two years in a Visual Communication enterprise named Oruga Films, where I can say that I learned many of the things I now know and also gained a lot of experience in what professional work and team work matters. Since I was in college I new I wanted to grow bigger and achieve many goals in life, and for this I knew that if I wanted to do great I had to attend a great school, so I applied and of course choose Parsons New School of Design. For me it was really hard to pick what I wanted to do in this school, and what kind of major I wanted to get involved into, because many things seemed so valuable and incredible interesting that it was really hard to make up my mind, and that's when I saw the DT program and how wide it was, and started projecting and realizing how much I could achieve from this major and how good it was going to be for me.

Prototypes-TRASHMAN *look and feel*


-Wire mesh about 8 ft.
-Wire scissors.
-Metal wire (one roll).
-A wood base of (2ft by 2 ft).
-4 plastic wheels.
-A wood hanger stick.
-Construction paper.
-Plastic gloves.

The look and feel of this dummy, its going to be a wire-mesh-human-like-figure , it will consists of various kinds of meshes some of them with smaller holes and other with bigger.It's going to be standing up at the same height of an average man, so kids and families will be able to reach him. We will provide plastic gloves if someone is afraid of touching the trash and if people are paranoid it will be a great idea to provide also Purell.

The base of the sculpture is going to be simple wood, and the wheels made of plastics as the ones you can find on "Arties".The figure is going to be attached by nails and if necesary a wood Cain will hold him from the back.
