Tamara Stone: Ouch

  • ©, Tamara Stone, Ouch

Artist Statement:


    Upon approaching my installation entitled “Ouch” members of the audience are faced with a dozen young girls who hang in suspended animation. Navigating the space will be impossible without impacting the figures, however with the slightest contact I each touch sensitive figure exclaims “OUCH”. The life size figures in “OUCH” are cast in flexible poly-eurathane foam from a sculpted original. They are covered in a cloth and rubber skin with woollen hair. Each figure is equipped with a sensitive switch, which when the girl is moved from her hanging axis, triggers a chip to play a voice recording through the speaker in her chest.
