@downtown_la Please consider my art concept from my fashion line "@Kaizehouse" for the #DTLAIRL Artist Challenge.
A posed statue will be staged and presented using contrast of light and shadows as pictured in third image.
Wings designed from my fashion line, #Kaizehouse, will be attached to the statue, made from long strands of chains falling down from across his backside, and throughout both arms. Each chain will carry a feather at the end of it. (Reference attached video for sample of chain and feather wings on runway for the Fashion Presentation)
Greek Mythology Icon "ICARUS" is a symbol I believe to represent Los Angeles and #DTLAIRL
Icarus represents the history, culture, and people of Los Angeles, as Icarus is depicted as the icon famously attracted to the sun (representation of light) which is commonly known to represent ideas, knowledge and self-consciousness.
Icarus, who flew too close to the sun, teaches us about his great sense of ambition, his motivation, and important lessons that can change your life forever.
