Electronic Textiles by Marisa Ranalli

Siphonophorae

Scientific classification, an order of the class Hydrozoa. A jellyfish-like creature that appears to be a single entity but is composed of a colony of zooids. Each zooid performs a specialized role within the colony, and cannot function on it's own.

Statement

Marisa Ranalli is a textile artist who incorporates electronics into her artwork. She works with human interaction and how it relates to themes of deep sea life, human biology, and light. Marisa uses felt and silk to create three dimensional, wearable forms. Siphonophorae is the culmination of Marisa's research over the past 5 years.
