The Post Apocalyptic Bobbleheads: Sculpture by Thomas Sherman

The Post Apocalyptic Bobbleheads.

I constructed 125 of these by purchasing Roger Clemens bobbleheads from McDonald's, sawing them apart with a handheld circular saw, rebuilding the armature and covering them in plaster, hot glue and industrial spray foam.

Recognizing that this could easily become a repetitive exercise in styling, I devised a way to make them unique, to give them souls. On small pieces of paper I wrote secrets about myself and buried one inside each of the sculptures.

I am no longer in possession of these pieces and have no idea who is.
