Catheter Bag Cozy


vinyl tubing, water, water pump, food coloring, knitting needles, catheter bag, wood, cotton padding, thread

84H x 132W x 24D inches

A continuous flow of blue liquid is pumped through vinyl tubing. The tubing begins as a tidy ball of "yarn" holding knitting needles and flows through a knit cozy around a catheter bag. Finally the blue liquid drips onto cotton padding. Embroidery on the cotton padding reads "familiarity breeds contempt". The photographs present the typical absorbency tests of diaper and tampon commercials.
