Enough with pretty polymer jewelry this week. Time for a change and I love the idea of Camille Young’s katamari ball. Camille built this sculpture on the fly, responding to calls from FanGamers during their online officecam show.

The ball is based on a puzzle-action video game. The game’s plot concerns a prince on a mission to rebuild the stars. This is achieved by rolling a magical, highly adhesive ball called a katamari around various locations, collecting increasingly greater objects until the ball has grown large enough to become a star.

Camille shows what accumulated on her polymer version of the ball in the video to the right. Here’s hoping that your personal katamari picks up polymer accomplishments through the week.

    I love this idea. I haven’t researched the game, but the concept seems to be a perfect metaphor for our life … rolling around picking up “stuff” that combines to become “US”, the STAR of our own story.

    If I don’t want a particular thing in my story, I’d better be careful where I roll, and if I want more of something, I’d better put myself into an environment where I’ll roll over it.

    I think I have a new tool for my self-discovery classes!

      I know nothing about the game, but this is brillant! Roll’in with my homey’s

        Hahaha the only thing my katamari would pick up is the cat fur tumbleweeds rolling around under my bed!
        Very cute work…
