Bea Camacho: Extensions

when i came across Bea Camacho‘s Extensions via wmmna, these crocheted glove/sleeves, i was instantly drawn to them because of the absurd and exaggerated forms they take. although my pieces are meant to be functional, i too am exaggerating something (awkward interactions as a result of functional wearable items); she is physically exaggerating the idea of isolation and separation by making these extensions which don’t extend the functionality of your arms, they actually keep people away, keep interactions from ocurring, and even make it hard to walk, or move, it would seem. i’m listin this a precedent more for form – but they seem more relevent to my personal space belt (the zap version).
