After looking at the work of Lindsay Obermeyer I felt inspired to continue to look and reflect on the subject of femininity.
I decided to focus on breasts as they are often typically linked to femininity. I used modrock to create plaster casts of my bare chest. Although after reflecting on these moulds I didn’t personally feel comfortable displaying my bare chest but, I did like the effect of the modrock which made me want to continue using it
To work around this issue I decided to use a bra to cover my chest. I feel like the inclusion of a bra adds an extra layer of commentary to the piece.
For my first attempt, I didn’t make the bra and chest piece separately which ended up making the piece look distorted – there was no clear divide between the chest and the bra.
