Plush, a child-friendly sculpting material, is one of Gelitin's signature lexicons. While the plush toys are often associated with children's innocence and naivete, Gelitin explores the dark fantasies hidden inside a seemingly harmless object by distorting its figure into something monstrous and uncanny. These toys also touch upon the destructive nature of infantile creative impulse; children's disregard for and oblivion to socially expected conduct often result in an inhibited behavior, which Gelitin encourages. The clash between children's raw, primitive impulse and a highbrow concept that is "art" transpires into an unruly yet fascinating sight.
