This project was definitely a challenge. The term “biomorphic” pertains to combining an animal with machinery and/or technology. Figuring out what animal to use was the easy part. The difficult part was choosing what piece of machinery or technology the animal can dynamically represent.
The animal I chose was a cat because, for as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a love for cats. However, this is no ordinary house cat. It’s the powerful, jungle cat known as the lioness. The reason why I chose a lioness over a house cat is because I feelthe most powerful thing a person, primarily me, can ever have is their voice and, well, the lioness has a powerful voice. I chose to have the lioness roar not only for this reason, but, because of the way she’s positioned, the machinery I incorporated makes more sense.
The machinery I chose to blend with my lioness was a stereo. The lioness’s head is covered in tiny circles, which represent the surface of speakers. While her head represents the surface, the inside of her body represents the inside of a stereo. I chose to blend my lioness with a stereo because of my love for music. I can’t go a day without listening to music and I play an instrument so music does play a big part in whoI am.
I think I was successful in blending the lioness with the stereo. I think the roar and the way the lioness is positioned gave it a good lead into bringing the stereo into life. Not in a realistic way, but in an imaginative way. However, I am aware of the flaws. If I was to improve the piece, I would make the body just as detailed as the head.
