rubber, plastic pipe; filling: wood dust; hook: metal; 50 x 170cm
An old textile that felt like rubber was laying around the forest in The Hague; it is waterproof and can be airtight as well, and has a plastic hole specially made for pipes or hoses. An abstract shape, out of a rubber sheet, filled with something and suspended could be approaching many subjects. My final idea was to create something that cannot be overseen, and looks dark, masculine, that becomes fragile just by touching it. I filled it with wood dust, up until the pipe hole. Just by pinching or touching the object, as close to the pipe hole as possible, the wood dust would come out, seeming that the shape is blowing at the person that touches it; it breathes through a hole.
