SAVE 4 WEB!@#!~

I have a couple of pieces in the Save 4 Web exhibition happening in Toronto, Canada next weekend - August 6-8th at Xpace Gallery. The show is made up entirely of animated gifs! And there will be a *special concert* Saturday night, August 7th. I think it will be a good time. If you can make it you should go! Curated by talented peeps Leslie Predy and Steph Davidson.

Heinz Edelmann

(...all images from here...)

Found these beautiful drawings the other day by Heinz Edelmann, the creator of the Beatles Yellow Submarine animated film. Heinz just died recently, July 21st, a little sad I think.

...The Beatles Yellow Submarine (the full length feature!)...
...Heinz Edelmann obituary in the NYT
...a transcripted interview from 1993...

"Instead of seeking to hold attention by a steady narrative flow it bombards spectators with a succession of visual effects, sometimes beautiful, sometimes hideous, always immediately striking."

(from the Times review of Yellow Submarine, July 18th. 1968)

There Exists There Does Not Exist

I have been messing around with a side portfolio of photographs, video and a few collages called THERE EXISTS THERE DOES NOT EXIST. It kind of works in tandem to my newest flickr account - some images come from there, and some from my original flickr account - but unlike Flower Delivery New York City there are no images culled from the internets.

Anyway, I have just been sitting on that one for a couple of months now so I thought I had better make it official. Hopefully this will satisfy my new account urges for awhile! And I promise at some point to link everything up in some way that makes sense. An overhaul of all my online junk is long overdue.

Both the new tumblr and new flickr have permanent links over there to the right in my side bar (up at the top in all caps).

Alright - over and out.

(posts more interesting than this one to come soon)

Tumble Time

I saved a few (well okay 126 so far) of my favorite tumblrs on delicious. I would link to them on this blog but there are just to many! So I guess this will have to do. It is really so amazing what people can create with that platform. Direct route from brain to internet - funny how much purely visual communication can really say.

Night Vision Slideshow

Sorry for slow posts! It is hard to feel motivated to sit in front of the computer these summer days.

I thought I would quickly post a slideshow of the photos I submitted to the Night Vision exhibition that took place last Friday night. I heard it was a real success - wet and wild - and over 300 people came! Congratulations to the organizers Natasha Lands and Jennilee Marigomen.

Adaptation Charlie Kaufman

This might break my poor blog but I think it is worth it. Do you like Charlie Kaufman? I sure do. And Meryl Streep? Who doesn't?? Orchids? Come on.

Anyway - hope you enjoy this. Summer night movie. Pretend you are outside, cool breeze, cozy blanket.


(PS. to play them all in succession without stopping go here and click "play all videos")

( on images to see larger...)

Made these strange accessories awhile back and finally got some nice photos of them very much thanks to secretlake. I don't really know what to do with them now - keep them as sculptures? sell them somewhere? wear them about town? Not sure. I always thought they would be really perfect for some sort of avant-garde photoshoot, but who knows the next time I will find myself at one of those!
