We’ve seen, from the fantastic work of Moxie, that when felt is used to recreate realistic objects it provokes unusual reaction. The contrast of hard and soft forces a reconsideration of the original form, and Rachel‘s work deploys this same mechanism. The content is macabre but the felt negates that feeling and literally softens the impact.
