I've invited people from all over world to participate and be featured in the Earth Alive 365 Awareness Portfolio for Endangered Species. Together we will create wearable art that will be used to raise awareness for 'Endangered Species & represent Ethical Animal Organizations'. We will be wearing the art at local and international gatherings, festivals and busy city streets to talk about conservation issues and invite people to get involved and take inspired action to help protect species. We will also be working with an animal organization to capture an image of us wearing the art with an endangered animal for the Earth Alive 365 Awareness Portfolio that will be used in an exhibition along awareness art created for various other species by myself and other artists.
The wearable art is 3D printed and we make use of a substance called PLA . Polylactic Acid, PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic, made from renewable resources like corn starch or sugarcane. Outside of 3D printing, it's typically used in medical implants, food packaging, and disposable tableware. We will combine the PLA with various other natural or semi natural products to create something truly special to celebrate Earth and the Wild.
