Eviscerate

 I started this piece a few weeks ago and it came together relatively fast. The meaning is still evolving. For this post I'll refer to Kafka's "Metamorphosis". I'll delve deeper into the Hare/crab claw meaning in the future.  Below are a series of images that describe how the work is made solid then cut into pieces and hollowed out.
 I like this view. Tendons.
 The head is lopped off.
 Then the arms.
 Finally the legs and we're left with the torso.
 Here's an image of all the body parts waiting to be eviscerated.
 Compare the the torso that's been hollowed out with the one that's still solid. The hollowing out process takes most of the day. That is if work to get it consistently thin throughout. The big parts are completed pretty quickly. It's the legs and feet that take the time with the delicate work.

Love it! Now if it just didn't look so much like you were building it out of chocolate!

Sometimes I feel like I can't even sing
I'm very scared for this world
I'm very scared for me
Eviscerate your memory
