Separating the Egg

This week I experimented further with the egg as a material, but I wanted to try and hone it further towards a domestic topic. I played with how I could make a simple domestic process, such as separating the shell, white and yolk of an egg, overly complicated and ultimately fail. I think this piece would have worked better as performance piece so the audience can fully engage with the process, rather than as a set of photos. I want to take this idea further by making the process even more complicated and ridiculous. The problem that I have found with this piece is that it conjures ideas of the body with the egg expelling its insides, so I need to find a way to direct it more towards the domestic world. Although, I am quite happy with the grossness of the piece and this may be something that I want to work further with.
