Entry Description

In concepts of mutation and evolution,this design are based on exaggerated animal skeletons and designed to fit the body which is grounded in a unique visual interpretation of animal anatomy, building upon existing skeleton structures to create it that appear as natural properties of the human body, suggesting strength, power and sensuality—a cross-image of human and animal, an atemporal, supreme creature, beyond past and future.The design was handcrafted with degradable plastic, leather, hair.Leather and hair are form recycling. Eventually this design was broken down into a new cycle.
