Van Orlax: urban vinyl

We are putting on a production of Friends, by Kobo Abe, at Brava Theatre. It opens November 6th. I am the set designer. The play, written as a commentary on society's control of the individual, is being presented as an absurdist take on gentrification and the present times. The main character is a grown man with a toy collection. Today I met with our wonderful props artists at Kid Robot in the upper Haight and we looked at toys, threw around ideas, and picked a bunch of things out! We bought this one (and a bunch of others... we each went home on the bus or skateboard with arms teeming). It is 20" tall. Here is another color scheme of the same sculpture:
