We chose to focus on character expression for this project. With our first parasite, our idea was to make an organism that restricts a host from eating. We really liked how our mechanism curled in well and wanted to explore that more in our next iteration. Since we understood the plastic material better this time around, we were able to scale up our design with fewer iterations. Our new parasite blocks off multiple of its host’s senses by covering their eyes, ears, and nose.

Working together was enjoyable. We were both open-minded, so exploring new ideas for our parasite was easy and productive.
