Electric Pool

2008_electric-pool

This is ” La Buena Onda ” in other situation. The place is in Ivry sur Seine south East of Paris. This place is an destroyed old electric powerstation. It’s a wild place and bit dangerous, full of deep hole like this one. If you fall in! It’s impossible to get out! So i found interresting to put this good vibe piece stuck in. The contrast is huge between La Buena Onda, and the heavy vibe of this “Electric Pool”.

Shellac / Gomme laque / Goma laca

Shellac A very popular and usefull material, that can be used in artwork.

I plan to use it instead of : synthetic polymer (Polyester+fiberglass). I am searching for a supply that allow me to armoring my pieces, without using synthetic supply. Synthetic supply are easy to use and realy resistant. But they are realy toxic and it stink too much, because of strong synthetic solvant inside the product.

I had used polyester a lot before, because i was short in time, but now and whant to use it enough.So if you have already experiment a supply that is less agressiv and have good resistant property, tell me please. Thank’s.

The cucaron have to dry for 10 days at least to be ready for the next step… to be continued…
