Cold wet night on the North Shore. July 4th 2019 8:12pm
Ive been thinking about theatricality in my work. I like creating very small (because it’d cost too much for big) installations, set designs, mise en scene, displays, drama, you know
I went crazy for making & photographing diorama in 2013, but felt frustrated at the finite quality of them and took hundreds of photos as if I suspected they’d transmogrify into something more meaningful & I only had to catch them at it
So I flicked through some image files finding some cool old stuff such as these. I liked doing the tricks, where little sculptures looked bigger when contrasted with background/foreground in a different scale
It feels so clever when you’re setting it up, like you’re hoodwinking everyone but at the same time knowing everyone knows the trick already. Clean fun. So I did a lot of it. Really, I had to externalise my hard drive for all this sht
I love these two images. My Crocodile masks
Cant believe how over processed my old images are
I love this & I could watch it all day, it tickled me true when it came about, just sitting at the workbench playing with stuff. There are some equally odd clips on my youtube channel if you want to waste even more time
And here we are again. Aren’t they great?
Getting the monthly update back on track
New sewing pattern time!
Excited to make this one, I have a blue/rust check poly exactly right for it
My darling Flying Lotus’. Buy one hey?
Then it was time for late night gambling. Unicum. Comes out of the cupboard when you’ve already had too much to drink, which happens a lot with Hungarians. The following images describe the rest of the evening
Aaah good times!
Theres always, like, some random sober guy
Yeah! Still going with the good times!
And so on until we couldn’t do it any more/ran out of Unicum
