This was one of the highlights of my thesis show during my undergraduate career. This dragon is meant to represent the eco-friendly facade industry can assume. It was inspired in-part by the bulldozing of a small cotton tree grove with trees that had been established for well over one-hundred years. It troubled me that someone could destroy something so beautiful and majestic in virtually the blink of an eye, all for the sake of money.
Over a mechanical skeleton this dragon has pine cone scales and locust tree thorns. Several ant-like figurines not displayed, are peeling back this superficial layer to expose the truth of the dragon’s form as it burns the log that had served as their home.
