also, i’ve made a silicone sculpture of my own hand(?) but the only thing i did with it so far was taking it to the bar with me. ideas?
As I prepare for the @risdstore demonstration for next Monday, I’m getting together a few of the samples we made with Composimold and impressive putty. #resin #resintoys #cement #silicone @candle #plaster #soap all made with @composimold_reusable_molds pretty cool to see these together
There is something special about popping out pieces from a fresh mold! It’s like Christmas morning every time! These are the…
New mask available at @immortalmasks ! This is “Pan” and I’m really excited about how he came together. Next we need a prom style photo shoot with the Faun and Pan 😂
Sculpted by me, brought to life by the lovely folx at Immortal!

My stop motion senior film “ArtHouse” has voice acting, which means lip sync animation! For stop motion specifically, this means replacing the mouth or face for every syllable and expression. For our film, we decided to have replaceable masks so that we can just sculpt on new mouths and such instead of a whole new head. In order to do that, we must mold the original head and cast enough of them for each different face.

Robotic clothing made out of silicone, glass and Polyvinylidene fluoride have been added with electronic devices making each piece of the garment react to its surrounding colour spectrum.
The Montreal-based Fashion Designer, Ying Gao, titled the collection ‘flowing water, standing time’, with the aim of capturing ‘the essence of movement and stability over a period of time. Gao also wanted to focus on the flow of ‘energies’ through a garment, and mirroring the colours in its immediate surroundings.’
This project was inspired by neurologist Oliver Sacks’ novel, The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, in which he relates the story of Jimmie G, a 49-year-old former sailor convinced of being aged 19 since having left the Navy.
Shocked by his own reflection when Sacks hands him a mirror, Jimmie reverts to his 19-year-old self as soon as his gaze leaves the reflective surface. Having lost any sense of temporal continuity, Jimmie lives as a prisoner to this single, perpetual moment, oscillating between a presence to the world and a presence to self.
Reflecting the characters journey throughout the novel, the garments perpetually change between two states as they react to the chromatic spectrum. ‘In order to echo this varying mobility, the garments are capable of chromatic movement, said Gao. ‘Capable of recognising the colours in their immediate surroundings, they are at once liquid and chameleon-like, adapting to the slow rhythm of their ever-changing environment.
‘A mirror effect is at play – the garments are reacting to what they see. Much like Oliver Sacks’ patient, they alternate between what they are, and what they can potentially become – all the while embodying the inherent complexity of all things.’
