Design Description

‘Metallum Avem’ was inspired by climate change that creates wildfire and the destruction of ecosystems caused by pollution etc. It’s forcing creature out of their local habitat and the destruction of wildlife. It got me thinking about designing an outfit to promote people to lower their rubbish waste and be more educated on climate change. The design is a winged creature with articulated wings that got tarnished and to warn humans to be aware of the ecosystem. My main material is scraps of weed control fabric from the local garden center and bike gears and parts from halfords bike repair shop.
