Urban Evolution

Juniper Tangpuz's avatar Juniper Tangpuz

I would like to create these huge lizard creatures that hang unto the light posts around the streets. The creatures would have features that mimic the features of the light post. They would have a solar light fixture integrated into the sculpture so it can be seen at night. The light fixtures are the kind you would light your patio walkway. The creatures would be strapped to the pole with stainless steel strapping, the kind you would find holding street signage. I would like to hang them at a height were no one can reach them and place them in a visible space without the obstruction of trees. My concept is that animals often carry the same features as there environment as a way to protect themselves. The story of these creatures is that they evolved and adapted features similar to creatures like the walking stick insect. My inspiration stems from my fascination with animal life and there ability to cope with changing environments.
