Welcome to the lowest point on earth -the land of nature’s greatest contrasts. A place that doesn’t play by the rules. No sea creatures grow there due to the very salty water but there's always a twist

A futuristic avatar creature might come to life from the Dead Sea according to myths and legends examining the site's natural history and its gradual and difficult exploration.

its/her/his Role of the Creature will be protecting the area and at the same time scaring and intimidating the people interested in the extraction of minerals and natural resources for their economic interests

"In the early part of the 20th century, the Dead Sea began to attract interest from chemists who deduced the sea was a natural deposit of potash (potassium chloride) and bromine." - Wikipedia

"Water levels are falling at an average rate of three feet per year. According to a recent governmental study, the rate of evaporation will slow and the Dead Sea will reach equilibrium again in a few decades—but not before losing another third of its present volume. Such a scenario represents an immeasurable loss."- The Dying of the Dead Sea | Science | Smithsonian Magazine

Project Planning

  • what? Futuristic wearable inspired from and mimicking Dead Sea.

  • How? merging different technologies and methodologies like 3D printing, computational couture electronics and crystallizations

  • Where? context refers to the Dead Sea which is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east, lowest land-based elevation on Earth (It is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world). It is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world.

  • Who? for new generation of artists and performers that interact with contemporary vision and wearable arts

  • Why? statement wearable piece to showcase and highlight Jordan and Deadsea in a contemporary way instead of the traditional or old ways of what the media showcase as well as raise awareness and highlights Recession and environmental concerns where due to economical interests its resources are being abused so this futuristic creature has a role and came back to life (rebirth/ awakened from deep sleep) to protect the deadsea from all that misusage
