The Bottles

A group of enlarged Squeegees I made with friends Roger and Corey. Inspired by photographic portraits I took of domestic cleaning agents, the pieces are handmade, like surfboards. Each can be manually triggered to spray or squirt water.

The Bottles were launched at Tamarama Beach during Sculpture by the Sea 2015. A highlight for me was the secondhand tan they developed- brushed on by the bodies of Bondi.
