We found what was once an ideal trophy mount deteriorating on the floor of a junk shop. Its busted seams, exposed stuffing, and torn, ragged ears evoked a similar level of pity in us as would finding a neglected pet. We were motivated to save this discarded animal in such a way to evoke pity, horror, and beauty in a viewer as it had been stirred in us. We had differing visions of how to use the broken seams on the hide: one of us saw the seams busting with puffed pink foam while the other planned to fill the gaps with eggs and decay. Our collaboration resulted in an ugly-beautiful aesthetic that communicates our concept better than either idea alone.
