That idea led into Foraminifera, which I was initially disappointed with. It didn’t seem to have any life or personality, although it did have lots of arms. It seemed flat, and, while colourful and an interesting shape, it seemed distinctly an object.
But then I started to spend some time with it and play with it. I discovered that, by moving the arms around and posing it, it could have a lot more animation.
I realized that presentation might very well be everything, and the animation of my objects depends very much on how they are presented. I wonder if I made the same piece, but maybe a different size and/or colour, and presented them differently, would they be recognized as the same form?
Part Four still to come.
