Full name: OMMA Collaborator: Michael Christian Built for: Electric Daisy Carnival 2012
Shot of the build. all of the ribs were generated in rhino, split in to two or more pieces and numbered, each rib has a locating hole to make measurements to the structure underneath by dropping a plumb line along the inner edge of the 6″x8″ leg “bone”
The skin was all free-cut pieces of 14ga to 18ga steel sheet, laid on top of the ribs then welded.
The legs slide in to receivers in the central torso truss. the entire body breaks up into two legs, a belly and a collar section for transport on the back of a semi.
Closer shot of the hip area.
The feet are about 6′ tall
Welding the skin on the toes was no trivial task.
shot of the ribs inside creating the belly shape, on the belly section, the ribs went in two directions to create a coherent form to skin.
the head and legs attach to an inner truss that provides the primary structure.
the rear of the head houses a 20k lumen projector that diffuses off of the acrylic lenses that make the face.
