DAZZLE DUCK:


Created for the exhibition, "Decoy", at the Saskatchewan Craft Council's Affinity Gallery, Dazzle Duck embodies my continuing explorations in three-dimensional scanning, direct manufacturing, and microcontrollers.

The project began when I literally took a plastic duck decoy as a point of departure. Through the process of scanning and manipulation within the computer, I was able to create a very thin shelled version of the decoy, thereby creating a virtual decoy. The resultant duck decoy attempts to misdirect the viewer in a number of ways. I layered an interest in dazzle camouflage's unique intersection of perception, fine art, and militarism. Experimental camouflage during WWI attempted to obscure the trajectory and velocity of naval vessels. One technique involved painting the hull in a way to make the bow appear to be the stern and vice versa. To further complicate things, I incorporated Dazzle Duck's night time deployment of a continuous S-O-S distress in ever-changing colored lights.
