Material Response To Derrida-Stumping Question by Lincøln

January 3rd, 2008 12:41 AM / Location: 34.251186,-118.3571

INSTRUCTIONS: Make a bust of the philosopher you would most like to be your mother.

I decided to construct a bust of one of my favorite and most mysterious philosophers Sir Francis Bacon.


Because I think he would have been cool to have around the house doing arts and crafts with and packing a bag lunch for me every day. We'd play in the park and write plays together and laugh and laugh and laugh. I sometimes like to daydream about Sir Francis Bacon tucking me in at night and reading me bed time stories, maybe even plays he'd ghost written. He'd take me to the beach and blow up my water wings and buy me an ice cream cone. He'd also force me to do my homework, but not in a mean way, I'd be able to tell he really cared about me. He'd be tough, but not too tough. We would have an awesome loving relationship.



I know that Francis Bacon was a master of codes and secrets and deception, but I believe we would have an open, caring, understanding relationship. And because our relationship would be so open and transparent. I decided to make a bust that was transparent.







The only materials used to make this bust of Sir Francis Bacon was Saran wrap and packing tape.




The bust

"I have taken all knowledge to be my providence"

And this is how it was done.

There he is in all of his glory. I used this as a reference when sculpting him.

I like him without the hat, I chose to sculpt him this way.

Another reference I used when sculpting the man. It's obvious the sculptors of these two statues used the same reference material, but they're slightly different.

Oh holy crap. That's way awesome. And Bacon is good too.

I'll show you exactly how I made it in a few days in an upcoming praxis.

You are crazy.

I love that you turned a 2 dimensional substance (Saran wrap) and a nearly 1 dimensional substance (the tape) into sculpture! Can you put colored lights in it to give him different moods?

With just a few colored lights, Saran Francis Bacon becomes Atomic Space Shakespeare.

Double vote!

What flair did the Sir Bacon have! If only he were a space pirate, and not a sea one!

Great completion!
