Topology Realised?

Immediately after reading this article, I immediately desired to see photos of this phenomenon. I wondered whether it could demonstrate a deformation, or even better, a deformation retract from topology.

And then I wondered if this plastic only demonstrates phenomenon concerning elasticity. Must it behave like a homeomorphism? Can it change the genus of a plastic surface, or kill injectivity?

Curiouser and curiouser ..
