The Faces


So as one could imagine, I've been keeping busy. Finished this screen project recently and had been meaning to post something for a while. Each of the four layers has been printed on transparent duralar, 9"x9", the idea being the viewer is intended to rearrange the order of the layers. Bone represents spirituality, muscle physicality, skin personality and the mask society and it's constructs. Although we are all always composed of these things, different layers take precedence in different circumstances. If you're at the hospital, you are likely to be regarded by your physicality first - if your sick, healthy, etc. Or at a place of worship, one might have their spiritual side exposed with their social, physical and personal selves underneath. Or maybe the spiritual side would be exposed at the hospital?

This project was an 80% success, in that it didn't print exactly how I had intended due to some unfortunate miscalculations. Overall, however, I'm quite content.

Remember remember...

...the fifth of (updating your blog) November.

Well, I have been keeping busy. I finished a print today, which was very pleasurable. Then I saw 'Where The Wild Things Are', which was also pleasurable.

That didn't come out right. It was a good movie, not what I was expecting. I suppose it wasn't as Disney as I'd expected it to be. Good though, 3 of 4 stars from me.

I don't have any good images of the prints I finished, so I shall photograph them tomorrow. But I will include one of the layers from it, which took a lot of time but turned out well.

Listening to:
Ricky Gervais Podcasts (amongst his other works)
Dizzee Rascal
Converge - Axe To Fall
Bjork - Volta
The Miles - Blood On My Blazer (Excellent!)
