Thorny yet soft, threatening yet cuddly. The idea that guided me was to turn it into a household pet. I began with a very awkward construction, which didn’t work out, and went on to collect foam “needles” from previous work. The work stayed with me over time as an environmental sculpture, one that absorbs everything that is stuck into it. Every scrap of foam I came across made its way to the pile that was accumulating. The inside of the shell is even more interesting than the outside.
It has a special movement.
I can testify that working on it is a form of meditation and can be very soothing.
