Somerville is an artsy city and it has many festivals. HONK! is a traveling festival that lands in the area in October and local enterprises are invited to participate. A fellow art school alum and I, both members of Artisans Asylum, wanted to build a fun, bright, group-activated project to represent artisans. Lo, we made a giant fog breathing phoenix, two traffic lanes wide, that takes 8 people to fully animate. Many volunteers helped with it and we had a team of 12 rotating underneath it through the big day; easily one of the most fun project reveals I’ve gotten to do.
