RubberMADE
Courtney Starrett
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building
RubberMADE is a collection of objects, both
interactive and wearable, inspired by the exploration of the mid-20
th century American
culture of consumerism and processed goods.  
The catalyst for this body of work was Starrett’s curiosity about the history and industrial uses of
silicone rubber and the relationship this synthetic material has with a 1950's style post-war "suburban" ranch house.  It is this relationship that has fueled the forms, colors, and titles of the works in the RubberMADE collection.
