I always envied the abilities of the octopus especially its tentacles. In the living sculpture and performance Octopada. I impersonate the features of the octopus. The outfit can change color by copying the color, of what it points at. It has 8 tentacles: 6 arms and 2 feet.
When, avoiding the enemy the octopus camouflages itself in its environment by imitating colors, patterns and shapes, it can detach a tentacle or even start devouring it self, if it has to escape from danger.
