A zipper is a common, functional item, performing to keep clothes covering a body, helping to contain our nudity. Monumentalizing this tiny, otherwise inane piece of aperture brings heightened attention to its important role. What a zipper holds back, conceals and reveals can also be considered. The closed zipper representing chastity, while the open end relating to fornication. The sculpture is intentionally designed to look like a body laying with "legs" spread open, reinforcing the idea of a zipper as a sexual icon. The work can also be interpreted as a reaction to commercialism and advertising, and the obviousness of selling sex.
