Building Kismet #1

I often feel like I don’t have a very sophisticated process as a puppet builder. I have been working for the past week on brainstorming object puppets for the first half of Cabinets of Kismet and it mostly consists of me picking pieces up and turning the over and trying to imagine them coming to life. So many of our previous shows have featured humans and animals that I find I have to work hard to overcome some automatic assumptions. For instance, I keep having to persuade my brain that not every puppet has to have a face or two arms or two legs. These are object creatures and they are unique in their world.

A mouth made of a zipper?

I like the shape but I think it needs color.
