Simply shocking


So there I was, trolling the internet for inspiring soap art... and this came up. Yes! What an amazingly simple yet effect design for a soap. Just stunning in its simplicity... so I clicked on the link to find out more.

This soap art was on display in a London art gallery. It does look good, but an art gallery? Yeah - seriously - look here. Wow, have I underestimated the allure of soap art? And then I read the caption:

"A partially-used bar of soap inlaid with a spiral of pubic hair." Whaaaattt?

Yeck - seriously tacky, but it looks so pretty...

Of course, I presume that was Tom Friedman's intention as an artist. To lure us in with something beautiful in its simplicity and make it shocking and repulsive at the same time.

Anyway - I'm now on a mission to figure out how to recreate this look without resorting to pubic (or any other) hair. Any suggestions to get this right appreciated... otherwise... watch this space. I figure my learning curve can't be as repulsive as a pubic hair embedded in soap on public display.
