Fish Totem

MOME Open Day, 2017
This giant fish monster was inspired by my childhood fear of the slippy body of fish touching me while I cannot see them underwater. At first, I created a clay model of the form, then I used papermache technique to transform the 3D form into a 2D flat pattern. This method made it possible for me to build the giant version of the form by cutting out the enlarged pattern from polyfoam.
