MAKE Asks: is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: When you’re completing a project, are you more concerned with how your creation works, or are visual aesthetics an important factor in how you work?

Most of my projects were purely made for function until I took a sculpture course in the Fine Arts department at NYU. I learned that presentation and context were important in how the user engaged with the piece, and have adjusted my style since then.
