From above, a photo of two people touching a sprawling textile sculpture called Big Softie. They reach into the guts, which are soft and dimpled and made from stuffed knee socks and nylon stockings, and examine the Unidentified Remains that are scattered amongst them. At the centre lies Big Softie’s heart, a red patchwork soft sculpture with tendrils extending outward.
