This sculpture has a low, flattened but slightly bulbous body with rubbery orange-ish skin. There is a discolored, slimy-looking area in the center of the body, and a loop at the top, which provides a way to hang this creature from a belt.

"Waterskin" (2003)

Welded steel, latex

11.75 x 7 x 2 inches // 29.8 x 17.8 x 5.1 centimeters

This sculpture represents an animal bred or genetically modified to serve human purposes. It's made from a hollow core of welded steel, but is covered with numerous layers of brushed-on latex to give it a "skin." The hollow core was originally filled with water and welded shut, then covered in latex, but the water found pinholes to escape through and gradually discolored the latex from the inside out, "aging" it.
