The Project Statement:
We researched an endangered species from our home state to base our next three projects on. Being from Washington, I chose to center my projects around orcas.
Our assignment was to create a model of our animals using found materials. The model had to have some sort of interaction built into it. I made an orca whale out of recycled bowls, fastened with brads and hot glue. The orca could open and close its mouth, bend its back, and flap its fins.
We were to create a vector illustration in Adobe Illustrator using only 7 colors showing our animal in its natural habitat along with its threat.
The last part of the project was to create a cut paper animation showing the animal in motion. We were restricted to only using 5 colors of paper.
