The main purpose of this paper is to study transparent figures using metal screen as an effective and appropriate approach to uncover new aesthetics dimensions in art, design, and scene design. The researchers base their paper on their creative experiments in soft sculpture and scene design with a number of design students. The researchers also refer to local and international creative experiences that complement the works’ expressive values and functional aspects. The study is concluded with a proposed design project to be researched and implemented as a business venture.
