circle of life





knowledge is power.
ignorance is bliss.

  did jesus die for his sins . or for mine
  test your ears . hear/here

be humankind



joel peter witkin, a new favourite/fascination. the american photographer arresting the eyes with these vile yet fleshly bodies; 
bodies of those assumed to be outsiders to the norm.

in turn london's hunterian mueseum-home to the royal college of surgeons of england, recently presented a wider view of physical 
distortion whilst opening the mind's eye that little bit further. in some cases more literally than others.

    private dancer, let's stay together
    you better be good to me.

the brain -- is wider than the sky --
for -- put them side by side --
the one the other will contain
with ease -- and you -- beside --

the brain is deeper than the sea --
for -- hold them -- blue to blue --
the one the other will absorb --
as sponges -- buckets -- do --

the brain is just the weight of god --
for -- heft them -- pound for pound --
and they will differ -- if they do --
as syllable from sound --

two teachings on final cut pro & here lies the filmmaker debut. 
life, death & the in between. encouraged by victorian post-mortem photography; as well as a brief referring to postcards 
from distant lands & their lovers.

unstirred by clothing design for many-a-month now, at last an arousal of the senses 
& what's more the brow.

as a fashion student of sorts twice a year ever year the consensus is to lend a hand in london fashion week. this fall 
lucky enough to dress for both the unconditional show as well as richard nicoll; richard nicoll the more striking of the two.
inspired by androgyne, david bowie & soundtrack by bowie the show commenced at nightfall. projected in the glass 
roofing of the old eurostar building at waterloo, the performance completely sublime.
pictured above two homemade prints inspired by a predominant piece of the nicoll s/s11 collection.

bones are made in the womb


as a creative there is a natural appreciation for a range of disciplines & methods of production. of late collage seems to 
be a particularly prominent outlet for my own artistry. on occasion it may seem to be a cheat, with no specific need to put 
pen paint or otherwise to paper. however the ability to create not just a seamless image but a convincing concept ought 
not to be underestimated.

in the same way that collage may cheat practical skill, art college can easily cheat the academic mind. this time two years 
ago the question 'when does science become art??' arose; since an interest in anatomical illustration has developed. above 
the work of richard russell & below that of wangechi mutu. determined to remain connected & interested in traditional 
academics, both artists & their surreal collages appeal to this need providing the perfect fusion of art, science & anthropology.
