The latex moulds that I had left finally set. The cast for the apple I managed to remove. The whole of the cast had not set and the bottom of where it was supposed to set there was a layer of liquid latex. Strangely I thought the latex cast turned out to look like a cast from the inside of a very large bum hole like an elephant. I found this most bizarre, it is something that I could explore ideas around. It reminded me of the art piece that I saw at Saatchi Gallery of a cows behind that you could see into and there was a weird, little alien inside. Having started exploring using food within my work I can explore this further on a larger scale.
