Squid vs. Whale

We made a giant sperm whale and giant squid inflatable in my Materials class!  Yesterday we finished building them and installed them in the Main Gallery, and performed as was AWESOME!!!  There was an epic battle in the sky (to "Final Countdown"), after a dramatic reading of an excerpt from Moby Dick.  I got to manipulate one of the tentacles from the second floor!

(just a clip of the performance)

Apparently "187" is the California police code for murder.
We also had some cool projections: some textural water/color images and one of an old boxing match taking place under water.
A teardrop tattoo, murder significance.
Epic aqueous/air battle!
The Squid's eyes are whale and crossbones haha!
Check out dem suckers.
It was a good day.
