The main reference in this picture depicting the sense of touch is the dada Object, nicknamed Le Déjeuner en fourrure, by Méret Oppenheim, she transformed these genteel items traditionally associated with feminine decorum into sensuous, sexually punning tableware. My version is much more fuzzy-furry and hardly decorous.
This was a fun experiment with a couple of fur brushes in Photoshop. The furry part of the picture alone had six layers, and I constructed my own furry cup, saucer, and teapot taking it one step further than Ms Oppenheim’s version, (though to be fair she did make a teaspoon as well).
In my imagination the sensation of the touch of fur on the lips when trying to drink hot tea makes me shiver.
The hand in this picture is passing through a much deconstructed cheat X-ray and has a splattered gold texture by which I’m trying to indicate the tingly sensation of the finger in the fur. The rest of the image has a gritty sensation that contrasts with the soft fluffiness of the fur.
