Giant Squid Project, Burning Man 2012

Here are a collection of photos and videos of the giant squid puppet I made in 2012. I was inspired to create the cephalopod in the spring of 2012, and had a working version ready by Esthetic Evolution at the end of June. Field testing the squid at Esthetic was very helpful -- I was able to refine the design and improve the materials.

Here's some photos:

I made several hundred squid necklaces and gave them away as gifts on the Playa. 



Here's a video of the squid making its way right to the front of the Opulent Temple:
