Problem Solving: Skin Deep
For the first project in my Problem Solving class, we had to visit the Camden Aquarium in search of inspiration.  Because we were focused primarily on the skin of the animal, I found that the bumpy texure of the skin and tentacles of the cuttlefish were the most fascianting.  I was mesmorized by the way the cuttlefish glided through the water and the movement of his body. Utilizing unconvential materials, I deceided to paint a shower curtain using a sponge and acrylic paint to achieve a texture similar to that of the cuttlefish.  To mimic the ovular shape of the cuttlefish, I hot glued cardboard to my muslin base.  After that, I draped a plain white shower curtain over the cardbaord and then draped the painted shower curtian over that to avoid seeing the cardbord.  Next, I used the shower curtains on the side of my body covering to represent the smooth, glowing fins on the cuttlefish.  To incorporate the tentalces, I cut white leggings into weird shapes and hot glued them onto the back of the dress as a collar.
