ARANAE

I wanted to base my design on the delicate relationship between the external exoskeleton of the araneae and that of its distal appendage that contains such a delicate looking component from within. I want to create a design that merges the geometric shape of the araneae exoskeleton with that of its equally geometric function of creating mesmerizing cobwebs in order to form a contrast between the “tough” and the “delicate.”  

 

Another driving factor behind my design is the symbolic importance that araneae carry, which include: divine femininity, patience, and increased awareness. A majority of my work involves femininity and I feel as though this project could be a catalyst to continue the narrative.
