Floppy Tools





This project is derivative of my test while learning to use the vacuum former tool. I began to fill some of the forms with silicone to make copies of the objects. This inspired me to learn how to make more precise molds, so I began to experiment with making plaster and rubber molds. My mold-making process is still a work in progress and I am continuing to learn and try new things. With my molds, I was interested in making tools. By rendering them in silicone, they become not only useless, but floppy and limp. A generic silicone color makes the tools appear fleshy and phallic and its material and shape are akin to sex toys. This is a longer project that I am continuing to work on.
