I carried out various experiments to see what way the body could be manipulated and changed to try and gain a more desired or enhanced effect.
I wanted to look at how this manipulation could become grotesque by adding excess fat to parts of the body.
I designed a sample piece which was boned and allowed pieces of the corset to be removed, this caused more pressure than an ordinary corset as more manipulation could take place.
Carrying forward my interest in manipulation I decided to produce some experiments of adding and layering up bulk to obtain an extreme impact.
Applying a mass of bulk to a concentrated area was more effective in conveying a sense of destruction through extreme measure, especially when the bulk was added to less desired places on the body.
Creating bulk without using wadding; although this appears effective, it doesn't seem full the way a mass of something should. Working with the padding is more effective in creating the impact I want.
