" Icon Star - Icon Star, inspired by the Iconoclaster Longimanus, has a life span similar to humans and their skin looks like a human-made electronic device. Icon Stars grow very slowly and often live in dark deep waters. The balance between the human-made/natural can be ambiguous, and many creatures in the oceans can often seem fictional or synthetic. I see this as a powerful idea, image, and tool to source in the intaglio process ".
