since yesterday…

I’ve been working on a bunch of projects recently – badger biker badges, flickerbooks, a soundpiece for college based on ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’ and a hanky for the RSC art competition. The badger badges are all done in time for my parents birthdays, the soundpiece is coming along, the flickerbook is all…

Yard Sale!

It’s all starting to get there! there’s a facebook group which is still pretty skinny, but heck ‘n’ blimey it’s still early days. but I did tart it up with a rough little poster thusly: Like I said, cheap and cheerful. I’m also working on specific proposals for each of the areas and from those…

Waiter, waiter, there’s a Yoke in my Zoom…

So, the summer’s here. Three glorious months of not-much-to-do, which is one of the things that I CAN’T STAND (to keep ticking over at anything like a sane level I need at least three things I can chop and change between or I get…. tetchy). Plus I’ve come out of the HNC with a certain…

SkinFlick Stills part two

Doing more work on skinflick, which is finally shaping up… it’s eleven minutes, forty five seconds long (both sections came in with a couple of minutes of each other, so i slowed one slightly and sped the other up), still as unlikely to go onto youtube, but again i have some stills to put up:…

chiton on ya

Editing skinflick has been bloody odd. I’ve never been the most comfortable person with my body, and watching myself moisturise, frame by frame, has been… odd. The footage is as unlikely to end up on youtube as ever, and i’ve been working on the Doric Chiton which will hopefully be draped over the statue arms…

Skin Flick

So, curtain ideas are down… now I’m thinking about the Film section. By using After Effects and a projector i can effectively make one projection a multi-channel installation! Whoo hoo! Plus I’ve been thinking about the vaseline covered screen – photographers and filmmakers have used myriad means of softening light – the use of silk…

getting a grip on de milo… The Witch from the Boiling Sea

So, I submitted the proposal, and my tutor and i had a discussion about it – he was concerned that the three ideas would swamp one another. So, we discussed each idea in more detail and came up with the following conclusions: The video could be more effective displayed separately,  still in the same room but…

404 down memory lane!

I’ve been doing some thinking about this cycle ride around my old addresses, and also thinking about how all bar one are on the same bus route – TWM route 404 from Walsall  to Blackheath. This route also encompasses my Nan and Granddads old house, as well as a couple of pubs i’ve worked in….

pages from my sketchbook – the next Generation….

‘ello The performance art project is really starting to get going – I’ve been working on the ‘bike ride around memory lane’ idea, but the scanning of sketchbook pages has become a little difficult as i’ve been doing a lot of the preliminary work on A1 flip chart pads (all hail the weird and wonderful…
