Final development process

I decided that the materials I would use would be raw and organic. I wanted to use a material that would demand an emotional reaction from the audience. I decided to use baby rats also known as pinkies to display the concept of mass production and consumerism.

This situation wasn’t ideal as the piece itself was meant to display beauty however I think the decaying process relates to the works unapologetic natural personality
