At the same time I was very inspired by Art Deco buildings. Most of my early experience with that kind of architecture was rotting derelict structures that were once symbols of power, so making an Art Deco shrine seamed to make some sort of sense. Also, while looking at stone and wood carvings in the V&A I was struck how similar the forms look to when people are in latex vacuum beds. They emerge out of the material. So that was that, a vacuum shrine to the latex gods!!!
Like most of the things I make I started by rummaging through the scrap pile and some time later The Shrine was born!
Was sooo excited when the lovely Kim and Synth asked me to bring the Shrine out on it's maiden voyage to their first Rubber only event Rubber Cult! Was a perfect setting, so much fun and an honer to be surrounded by so many lovely people, beautiful outfits and great performances. I can't wait for the next one! Look for your self!!!:
Zac Zenza took fantastic pictures on the night and captured some beautiful moments of the shrine in action! Was also v exciting to see his ace pictures up on Skin Two's Review of Rubber cult:
