Octopuses: Beyond the obvious formal comparison between his fabric plumes and these spinelessly fluid cephalopods, Hundley has long been amazed by octopuses’ many talents. “Growing up I always drew and painted them,” he says. “Then I learned about them, and they’re chromatophores — meaning they can change their skin color — they’re incredibly intelligent, and they can basically fit themselves into any hole they can fit their eyes and mouth through. It’s just crazy, I don’t know how something like that is made, or how it evolved to be that way.”
