Suffocation continued... Obese torsos

I wanted to expand on my theme of suffocation, so I thought about objects that surround the body, for instance clothes, skin, hair and FAT!

Excess amount of fat suffocates the body, and with this i have created abstract torsos made from a special technique i discovered, which creates this amazingly smooth look and feel. It was a very messy job but i think the hours put in payed off.

Here they are, tell me what you think...

Biit of scale with some lego! yeaha!

A bit weird i know, but i wanted to choose a twisted theme. These sculptures range from shrunken heads to an obese man sitting on a bog! :D I thought id be able to link the idea of suffocation to aspects of history, african culture, angst, death (of course), mass media ( in production), and how people percieve people and objects. The reactions have been funny so far, but tell me what you think.

My interpretation of Shrunken heads

turn your head to the right.


A little latex nose there, need to stage and photograph them properly soon.

Heres a look at human suffocation, obesity. It's me inside some big clothes basically, in chlostaphobic, dirty places. Sort of production pieces, thinking of walking around ipswich init?

Gonna have some videos up soon, will need some people to give me a hand, will be fun though, any volenteers?
