Release: A Five-Scene Story

    three-dimensional comic

    I created a caterpillar-helicopter creature for a 4-personcollaborative project, in response to a cyanotype-printed cityscape ona shirt. He later evolved into this 5-scene three-dimensional comic.Here, our protagonist looks on sadly, then returns to munching on citybuildings. He is captured, and then released into an idylliccaterpillar-helicopter monster refuge.

    The material and format were chosen because they evoke mini woodenstage sets, and highlight the fact that these are constructed scenes.And because the scenes were movable, we discovered that when reversed,the scenes tell a different story (helicopters arrive at the creatures'idyllic refuge, then capture and release one of them in a city). I willbe building another version with the two stories constructedback-to-back.
