Hairy eye balls
2011

'Hairy Eye Balls' are the earliest 'creaptures' - creature-sculptures - that attempt to subvert the familiar through the experience of ‘the uncanny’ (Freud, Das Unheimliche, 1919). With the simple combination of glass and fur, these aim to provoke tensions between the threatening and the safe, the animate and the inanimate, while remaining on the threshold between the familiar and the unfamiliar. Fur, unconventional because of its suspended condition between life and death, simultaneously repulses and seduces. Pressed behind glass, it suggests a potential tactile experience one can only undergo by ‘touching with the eyes’.
