Camouflage on the road

 

Research

Those two pictures attract my attention to do the camouflage project. When I did the research, I found out that zebra stripes not for camouflage (scientist confirm). It means breaking up the outline of the zebra to make it less conspicuous, as at the point at which predators can see zebra stripes they will already have heard or smelled the zebra prey. Therefore, I tried a few more signs on the road, for example left/right turn signal and all kinds of signs. From those I choose a bike sign for my project. And when I was choosing the clothing style, cloak was my first choice.
