3D project

For our 3D assignment I created a woodblock to be a piece that someone could go up to and feel the texture of the wood in the areas that were carved into and to also create prints from the wood. I wanted it to be multifunctional. So I chose animals that live in the ocean, the hammerhead shark because of the shark-finning that has been taking place and causing the number of sharks that exist to decline. The porpoise because I recently discovered there is such a thing as a white porpoise, but there have only been about 15 sightings since the 1970s, the orca due to the backlash SeaWorld received with their care for the animals and how they are perceived as these dangerous “killer” whales. And lastly the humpback whale who were on the brink of endangerment but have been coming back with new life, however the new life is filled with plastic from all the pollution caused by us humans. So I carved them into the wood to preserve these beautiful creatures.
