Self Objectification Strategy

Scott Hove

Part of Cakeland, 2012.

The cakes are typically constructed out of a carvable polyurethane sculpting foam, which is shaped with handheld Japanese woodcarving knives and rasps. They are then frosted and decorated with a variety of thickened acrylic gels, using traditional cake decorator tools and pastry bags. They are then accessorized with assorted media: mirrors, switchblades, taxidermy jaws, pills… some are purchased, some are found on the street near my studio in Oakland.

Material: modified stripper shoes and mixed media, dimensions variable.
