Wow, you have to see these! Adriana Bertini is an artist living in Brazil who makes art out of condoms. Here's her statement:
'I work in the Dress Up Against AIDS Project which is composed by art workshops, debates, artisic interventions, art exhibitions, publicity campaigns, lectures and formation of young community agents in aids prevention.
For twelve years I have investigated the transformation of condoms into art pieces re-utilizing condoms which haven't been approved by the companies' quality control process. The goal is to re-define the condoms' image by breaking taboos and inserting the image in a natural way to every day life.'
And here's her photostream.
