A play on the hourglass figure and its representation in the media, “Butt lift” references body constructs created with the advent of plastic surgery/sculpting. The C-clamps symbolize the inorganic interjection in the form enabling the seemingly impossible proportions. The red Cclamp doubles as part of the “lift” as well as an indication of the back pain sustained from supporting the form.
