Kitty & Dynah go to the Seaside

The tremendousness of it all! the colours, sounds and shapes! the dread and nausea, the joy and euphoria! and, the sad demise of the muso scope… It’s been somewhat more of a rollercoaster than usual. The descision was made to ditch the musoscope, as it was a bit delicate and we were expecting people to…

All my dreams came true! (but now i have a bunch of other dreams)

Things have been hectic, hectic, hectic… what with the Flickernic, and college, and everything I’ve again arrived at the point where i have a months worth of half written blog posts cluttering my drafts folder…. most importantly though, the FMP piece for the exhibition at the New Art Gallery Walsall has taken tremendous shape, now…

That, Hillary, is An Homunculus!

I had the assessment, half term is coming up, and now I’m working on ideas for the big assed end of year show. Which has brought up another idea – my kerouac scroll. Being the first thing i did at college, and having already being exhibited twice, it’s become something of a ‘reserve’, an impressive…

SkinFlick

For all of you unable to get to the exhibition, here is a little representation of the final piece, ‘SkinFlick’ hope you like it Vix

last words

I passed the assessment, whoo hoo! The exhibition went well, and the mutant behaved itself a lot better once i’d installed a cooling system. many jokes were made about my battery consumption. plus today the EV came in, so i was waiting around for a while with a dead DV tape – so had some fun;…

permanence

I find private views completely anticlimactic – all the effort and frantic frustration, panic and tension boiling down to a glass of cheap red and a hint of ‘where did all the effort go?’. there’s also the tiny niggles and worries and little things that go wrong that make you think ‘ah well…’. Still –…

the end is nigh!

The private view is tomorrow, i’m putting the finishing touches to the ‘scopes and getting everything together for the assessment. I also have some plateweights for the muto stand which will help. i’m installing myself tomorrow and so far, so good… D’ya wanna see what they look like now? i found a suitable piece of…

signs of the times

Something that mutoscopes always had was a sign advertising the feature, which usually followed the same aesthetic as vaudeville and burlesque posters. They’d range from massive, detail dripping, extravaganza promising full colour displays to simple block capitals, so i wanted to do one of each. first, the Witch from the Boiling Sea: I can’t help…

getting there – no, i really am this time!

the mutoscopes are really taking shape now – the frame on the mutantscope was bothering me, so i’m replacing it with painted sheets of EVA, It looks like it was stored in some eccentrics cellar for years, under the shelf with the leaky mutagen… mwahahahahaaaa. When i look at it i’m disgusted and fascinated –…

The Permanent Way

Private view is on Tuesday 18th May from 6 – 8:30 – see y’all there 😉
