jacuzzi artwork by mike bouchet

not new, but never properly introduced,
… functional jacuzzis made of fiberglass and cardboard,
by mike bouchet, 2005

‘I approach each jacuzzi as a sculptural object, a spatial container,
a space with light and water, a response to context and
appropriateness of feeling and spirit. to this container, this sculpture,
the user brings his baggage, his program, and interacts with it to
accommodate his needs; If he can’t do that, I’ve failed.
I think my best skill as a designer is the achievement of
hand-to-eye coordination; I am able to transfer a sketch
into a model into the jacuzzi.’

mike bouchet was born in 1970,  in castro valley/ california
the artist lives and works in new york city and frankfurt, germany.
