Sewing with silicone

Posted on April 15, 2012

This is a layout for my next project. I plan to create a soft sculpture by sewing these flexible rubbery cast silicone pieces to this canvas. I will make it into a large bean bag so you can interact with it and explore the spaces and intricate patterns that are not visible when the piece is flat and immobile. I hope it works. It’s raining today and I have my embroidery thread and jumbo needle ready to go. Perhaps a nice fire for ambiance, then some binge stitching.

    Glue might also work… or both glue and stitching.

    Sewing silicone is like some sort of cyber-world revision of mythology, with the Fates busy re-configuring the elements!
