Ahmad Ibrahim – speculative you

For this project i chose to focus on a dystopian future narrative where the character that wears this helmet is an alien life form. This character survives off of the energy of other life forms by sucking the life out of them. The alien uses the helmet to suck up energy through the laser on the left of the helmet and the energy flowing is portrayed through the EL wire lighting.

process work:

I first started out with a foam head to draft the helmet pattern by applying tape and cutting out the parts to transfer over to the EVA foam.

I then glued the foam parts together and heat formed the parts to create the curves.

After several trials i managed to achieve the right shape.
