'Stretched Latex 1'

'Stretched Latex 1'

An experimental piece challenging the purpose of latex. The words are from a found book and are 'stuck' to the latex and so when stretched create interesting forms within the words. I was interested in stretching the latex as because it resembles skin, I was intrigued by what the reactions the stretching would have. The piece is stretched on a painted 6"x4" wooden frame.

(apologies for the bad pictures, I have limited lighting in my room at present)

  1. I like this effect. Words on skin surface, like a kind of tattoo. Nice!
