. My strawberries are born in the search of shapes I aim to save, shapes that would otherwise disappear into another state, were I not to intervene. A seasonal fruit is now in a non-seasonal form. The silicone holds the imprint of the strawberry's texture, and when a silicone print is made, it creates an unusual sensation in the way that the shape of the printed silicone is familiar, but something feels strange about it. All of them are unique. The shapes are all taken from different strawberries.
