Feeling Fat

Title: Feeling Fat
Created: January 2008
Type: Assemblage Sculpture
Description: This was made with a self-invented technique in which plastic bags and garbage bags were stuffed with newspaper. Then the stuffed bags were covered with a 5XL shirt and shaped appropriately. Next the figure was coated several times with a mixture of white glue and water. After it was dry and altered logos were painted onto it, the bags were removed from the inside to create a hollow shell. This is a statement on internalized fast food culture. This was both my first invented technique and first assemblage work.
Size: 78 x 70.5 x 56 CM (30.7 x 27.8 x 22 IN)
