I sculpted and cast this magnified Dinoflagellate and Angler Fish for the Creatures of Light exhibit in 2013.
Using one mold of a carapace (the top shell of a turtle) I sculpted, cast, re-positioned and painted multiple turtles for the "!Cuba!", and the "Unseen Oceans" exhibits in 2017 and 2018.
An interactive in the "Senses" exhibit in 2018, placed the visitor in the "shoes" of a hungry Pit Viper. To find the prey, they were given a heat detecting camera. I sculpted a life sized Common Iora, Long Tailed Tree Rat, and Common Shrew, and with a series of material tests, figured out how to evenly heat the sculpted critters from within so their body temperatures were visible, and their body shapes recognizable on the visitors' screen. I then painted the animals light green to camouflage within their stylized, monochromatic environment.
