I presented my final castings in a documented format. They were displayed in order of two rows of three starting with the mostly crushed to the least crushed. Feedback I received was the castings look as if they have a "relation to people" they look like people "praying". They also look as if they have "different identities" because of the marks, folds and creases. Another comment which one of my peers made was they liked how originally the plastic cup was "thin" and easy to manipulate the shape, then to a hard "solid" casting of the cup. They were a "near perfect cast of something disformed". Comparison to my work was Robert Gober for the way he takes something out of its natural habitat and plays with the construction process of turning the mundane into a piece of art work which can be described as extra-ordinary. Examples of his work are below.
