PROTOTYPE

The final version of the prototype is made in Apoxie Sculpt and sanded by hand to ensure the best possible finish and fitting. The prototype is sprayed with primer to test for surface errors and texture.

THE 7 STATES

1) STOIC/ MONUMENTAL
In full standing Donovan’s exterior is that of calm composure. The assymetrical difference in muscle mass and lesser and more obvious details tell tale of the underlying incongruences and inner turmoil.

2) AWAKENING/ AWAKENED
The second state of decomposition/ decomposure, holds Donovan’s two inner eyes hidden inside his would be skull and in substitute of what would be his extreme Cervical Vertebra disc. The two eyeballs connected with an optical cord lets him grasp his surroundings with his inner eyes.
