This work started from the poster for Alien. I had a stuffed Garfield in the garage so I hacked off all of his appendages and sewed the holes shut, save the one on his neck; this I wanted to cover in congealed fat and then pick it apart like a wound or scab. But there is a problem with congealing fat... it is impossible to get it to stay in one place without it looking rigged. So instead I used hot glue. When I have had it at exhibitions though I lied about the materials. Hot glue kinda kills it for me.
