dc.description.abstractPropelling myself through water, or wind, I must consider the resistance against me. 'Swim or Fly' has evolved from my continued fascination with the movement of other animals. I have combined an animal known for its land speed with appendages from a sea creature. I chose the greyhound and the humpback whale because of their efficiency in design for movement. The greyhound is simultaneously a docile and humble animal, but in contrast, it is also associated with speed, grace, and agility. The humpback whale also shares a reputation for being gentle and non-threatening however, its size in relation to our own is very intimidating. The humpback whale fins, being very wing-like, also imply air travel. The dorsal fins, in union with the greyhounds' bodies, creates a fanciful situation in which the dogs must meet with a unique and unlikely circumstance. It appears that they have the option to either swim or fly.en
