06 Feb Commission for Monterey Bay Aquarium finished!
I’m super excited to be able to share final images and video for my series of Cephalopods commissioned by the Monterey Bay Aquarium! The pieces are destined for the upcoming exhibit “Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid and Cuttlefishes,” opening April 12, 2014. These pieces will help tell stories about the impacts that pollution, overfishing and habitat destruction have on these animals. The project has truly been a dream come true for me and I’ll be sure to post images of the pieces once they are installed among real sea creatures in April. I will also be displaying these pieces briefly at an open house event in my studio Saturday March 15th. Stay tuned for details to follow.
In the mean time I’ve posted details of each piece individually: Cuttlefish, Octopus, and Nautilus here on my site, and put together a quick video overview of all three (above). Below is a very cool little video that the Aquarium produced about the making of the pieces as well as a few teaser images of finished pieces:
