I am obsessive and believe in the slow cooking process.
Layering Latex as an act of replicating the outer fetal membrane around an embryo as it determines the primary and important role for its survival.
A layer of protection and nutrition directly in contact with the mother’s tissue.
The idea here is to create a deep link in between the piece and its owner by letting go of control and letting the entity evolve naturally over time and depending on his environment. As the surface of Chorion slowly changes in appearance, this aging process should be seen as the beauty in imperfections and a characteristic of the Minky.
EVOLUTION - MUTATION - SATISFACTION - FRUSTRATION
HANDLE WITH CARE:
Avoid touching, latex gets dirty very easily.
Do not put in contact with any kind of metal to avoid chemical reactions.
Avoid straight natural light, latex develops a white powdery bloom which cleans off, but is undesirable and weakens the rubber’s strength and shine.
Latex breathes and is 65% water, the color and texture will change. Variations should be seen as a characteristic of the piece.
