you don't have to be a student to make a failed grey 3D object but it helps if you are trying to make it "right" when the process goes awry 26 Aug

see. e.g., snail news or cat inflation 26 Aug

the failed grey 3D object is then detached from its host programming, made into a GIF or mp4 and released into the sharing stream 26 Aug

the grey 3D object fails in an intriguing way--if it falls it doesn't bounce right or its surfaces are weirdly repellent to other surfaces 26 Aug

build a shell of an object in 3D; keep it featureless grey; use an algorithm to make it molten or responsive to wind or gravity 26 Aug
