At this point in the project i had become less focused on structure and more interested in the nature of the material itself. Nylon tights have a large amount of elasticity which when filled enables them to expand and stretch to a size twice their original shape linking to the elasticity and flexibility of skin. I began to fill tights with cotton wool and layer them over each other similar to the human bodies many layers of skin

The sculptures aesthetic links to the digestive system in particular the intestines i personally feel that the fleshy and grotesque nature of the sculpture displays similarities to human functions such as the act of sex and possibly the process of child birth where every organ and muscle compresses and moves to produce and carry new life.
