    The enormous boiler suit doesn't look so bad, but things take a more sinister turn when two artists haul out a pair of plastic canisters ominously marked 'A' and 'B'. These chemicals make up the polyurethance mixture. I pour them into a bucked, along with a blue pigment, then jump on the fabric mould while the artists stir the goo.

    Before I can say 'bottoms up' the mixture grows before my eyes. It's poured into the mold where it will expand up to 18 times its original volume. A warm, soothing sensation creeps up my legs, then the temperature suddenly increases. Help, my pants are on fire!

    The artists rescue me. Phew! We wait 15 mnutes for the foam to cool and finally peel away the fabric to reveal a one-of-a-kind Rebecca's-bottom-shaped foam chair. It's pretty roomy. Damn – it even shows up the cellulite.
