Theory of the Silly Putty person


Theory of the silly putty person. Of our figuration with tubes for arms, dough for hands. Common to most figuration today, no?  Lacking anatomy, musculature, skeletal structure, bordering on alien grey. Fallout from our cartoon moment? That fully embodying the character with blood, skeleton, vasculature, with shit, piss, blemish would prevent the everyman? If the character becomes too realized we won't identify with their blank anonymous vessel? To remind us we live in a realm of unreal people?
