Week 9 was fraught with technical challenges – coping with shrinking and warping bodies, wobbly legs, cracking across the back, heads that grew beyond the centre of gravity – and lots of artistic decision making. The team bravely managed their anxieties and hung in there. Not all the issues are resolved yet – we still need to tackle the legs – but everything else resolved itself with time.
