This year I was asked by Global Grooves to design and produce five stilt walking Elephants as part of Project Phoenix. Project Phoenix is produced by Global Grooves in collaboration with Cabasa Carnival Arts. I designed the elephants as a fun interactive puppet, including elements of batik, wire sculpting and fabric patchwork. The design was heavily influenced by Indian prints, I collaborated with artist Hannah Jones on the ear print design.
This is one of my first large scale projects, I'm very thankful for Global Grooves and Cabasa Carnival Arts for selecting me to lead this project. I am also very thankful to all of the wonderful people that assisted me on the project, there would have been much crying and freaking out without you.
