Designed by Chrissy Conant, the Chrissy Skin Rug is actually a very personal creation by the designer, signifying her relationship with her parents or some other mommy-daddy-type issue. I’m more focused on how disturbing this thing is. (Pics)
It sort of looks like a slaughtered blow-up doll. If there was a blow-up doll serial killer, their home might feature a rug like this one.
“To exorcise a part of my psyche that feels powerless and objectified, I laid fully shaven, covered with Vaseline, and immobilized for hours, in a spread eagle position, while being covered with bucketfuls of gelatinous mold-making material. With the impressions, I made a life-sized, flesh-colored silicone rubber cast of myself as a human skin rug. The upturned head has long, perfectly coifed, wavy hair, that echoes the ripples in the flayed skin’s edge. The glossy-lipped mouth is open in a sexually suggestive way, and the glass eyes, complete with fantasy-length lashes, stare up submissively from the rustic wood floor section, upon which the rug is magnetically attached.”
