So yesterday my Bubble-Eye fish died. His name was Murray and he was a birthday present from a pal. Despite the saddness of his passing, his death has been a a great opportunity for photography and drawing. "Anatomical", in the words of my flatmate Lara. More to follow soon.
Directed by photographer Tony Kelly for American Apparel, featuring world renowned breakdancers Jalen Testerman and Lil Demon
Poster for the upcoming film of ours, 'Freddie the Exploding Dog'. Filming finished last weekend followed by a week of editing. The film was handed in yesterday and will be premiered at a Chelsea Oscar night which conincides with end of term. Freddie will be uploaded after this event has passed. Be ready.
Found this on my hard drive, coincidentally they go with the post below, kind of. Don't know where or who but they're a little bit gorgeous.
Hello Kitty and Pneumatic Anatomica by Jason Freeny. See an interview with him at the address below. Also, he's worth just google image-ing, his work is cutely morbid.
Silly Symphony - The Skeleton Dance 1929 by Disney. Can't express how much I like this. 3:45 particularly made me giggle.
I used to collect bottle caps. Actually, I think I still have them somewhere under my bed. Which is why I love Arizona-based artist, William LeGoullon who collected 99 bottle caps from one of his state’s remaining Drive-In Movie Theaters as part of his “Intermission” series. See his portfolio at http://legoullonphotography.com
Above is a short film comparing the two artists Lucio Fontana and Angela de la Cruz. It accompanies an essay in which we were asked to write a conversation between a modernist figure and a post modernist.
With thanks to Jack Dixon at Afco for his help filming.
Song: Hands by Four Tet.
Boxers before and after. A series of photographs by Nicolai Howalt, a photographer from Denmark. Bloody lovely stuff. See all the shots at http://www.fubiz.net/2011/05/27/boxers-before-and-after/
His website is well worth checking out at http://www.nicolaihowalt.com/index.php
I especially like the deflated airbags in 'car crash studies' and 'dying birds'
Last Thursday I went to the Central Saint Martins first year fine art show at Trinity Buoy Wharf where they had been working on site during the previous week. My flatmate, Laramie Shubber, exhibited her work (below, top image) alongside other highlights like a slide (from outside into the basement) by Lindsay Mcmillan and an outdoor seating area/den by someone called Briony. Following Lara's work are just a few of the other pieces I liked.
Project: 'REDESIGN YOUR FAVOURITE VINYL FORMAT 12" ALBUM'.
Here are just a few samples of ideas for the vinyl project. The photographs from the shoot in Richmond have turned out really well so I'm now experimenting with type and layout and deciding which images work best. I'm hand rendering most of the text and have tested out some lino cuts. The hands-on style of work kind of goes with the idea of getting mucky in the countryside. Plus, I just love working analogue.
