3D 'sketching' (by Steve)

I've done some tinkering, which I consider 'sketches' at this point, of cocoon-like structures.
I started to think of whether I could move away from using wood, because its heavy, and I often use it. I was thinking soft sculptures could be interesting. The soft pink insulation as a real organic feel, and could read as flesh, or body tissue of some sorts.

However, its awkward to work with (you aren't supposed to touch it!) and I'm not down with the way the plastic sheets are encapsulating it at this point. The cocoons look kind of 'ugly' and I'm not sure how I feel about that. So good try, but I may need to move on to other materials...

insulation, vapour barrier, tuck tape
