Chucky and his skin disease
This is Chucky. He suffers from a very bad skin disease that causes him unthinkable pain.
I wanted to find a way to express Chucky’s pain, and his anguish at their not being a cure for his disease, in a sequence of haunting images. I came up with the idea of using latex as a symbol for his skin. His peeling the latex away would be a physical representation of the relief he craves from his oppressive affliction.
Unfortunately, the cure for the disease is still undiscovered.
