girls for boys 2008 - lisa furno



A tribute to the hard working lives of the vibrator/dildo. A new beginning for these tools, out form behind closed doors. Could society do without them?

I work with a variety of precious and non-precious, colourful and second hand materials. Through physical manipulation I transform these forms not only into visually appealing pieces but also functioning wearable objects.

These three neckpieces are all inspired by this exhibition theme ‘Girls for Boys’. Initially designed solely for the sexual satisfaction and enjoyment for both men and women.

Here I have altered and manipulated these original bundles of joy to create a new and vibrant life for them as a series of wearable pieces of jewellery.
