Worked up some new textures for the second casting. Now starting to get a sense of the possible multitude of arms/tentacles. See my instagram for test images of the tentacles with disco fairy lights inside!
Exciting day – first cast off the new 150cm mould. I loved how the inverted cast looked like a mini-boobscape, it’s fantastic when the work has resonances with previous works. The cast was easily demoulded with just a little split at the base, and at 150cm has quite a presence. The texture is subtle and yet evocative. Now time to start making more – it takes a minimum of a week to make a cast, and each will be individualised along the way. Hoping to amass a large number of them to play around with install possibilities.
