Alternative Media: Puppets!

  • Stop-motion puppets made during Alternative Media Including, but not limited to, Puppet Club.
     
    The club was founded this year by a group of friends at RISD (myself included), with the goal of teaching techniques not commonly offered in studio classes. Currently, we are teaching members how to make aluminum-armature stop-motion puppets. It's been a wonderful opportunity to make work outside of what I typically do in industrial design, proof that many kinds of work can come from the same creative core.
     
    Materials: aluminum wire, epoxy, foam, latex, super sculpey, paint, fabric
  • High-society lady
  • Forest creature
  • An odd encounter.
  • A poster I designed to promote the club. The work featured is a portrait of Tim Burton by Carolyn Erikson, a graduate of the RISD illustration department.
