Camberwell external exhibition at the Rag Factory

A few weeks ago I went to the Camberwell's BA Grafic Design external show at the Rag Factory mainly to have a nose around the space, since we were to have our show in the same venue.

It wasn't a surprise the show was very good and full packed, so luckily Jackie and I made sure to get early so we could actually see the work up.

We were the first to get to try a real fun piece that involved a cheese 80's beach poster background a fan to blow your hair and a Fujifilm instant camera. We also gave the photo a go in tryng to get some effects on in by folding it before it's fully exposed, somethig we used to do when dear polaroids were not as horribly difficult to get; it did sort of work, but I guess there is gonna have to be a lot experimentation to find good little instant and uncontrolled special effects before fuji instand films get my heart.  I have beeingtrying for ages to find the girl's who did this piece name, but seams impossible, she did not have a business card and the case for the photo she gave away with her email as only contact detail went missing... but I think her name was Sarah? ... no idea of surname... :(

The other piece I saw and which I consider my favourite in the show was 'Mechanicky Orgasmus' and very sexy video piece by Hellen Ralli. I found her work via Holy Ghost blog.

Philippe Jusforgues

I love his witty collages...  I see with jealousy every single one of them.. wishing I had done them, I think of those ones I did a few years back and tell myself I'm absolutely going back to collage a little, just for fun...
To see more of his great work visit his website here .

Animal Skulls ...

So time to catch up has come.. and is so exciting, there  is a little project  I'm doing some research for, still all in the air,  but it will involved a beautiful fashion collection,  some animal like pouses  maybe, the roof and corridors of the Art Deco building I'm currently living in hopefully.. and some bare skin with chunks of geometric minimalistic patterns perhaps....  trying to stop my head from wanting to put it all there and keep it suuuuper simple... but this stage is just my favorite, where everything you see seams to want take part of it.... so expect many images  coming for this project which for now I will simply call 'animal skulls'....

Im thinking in electric tape... or latex paint... just cos tattoos stay for ever and that is like too long for a photo-shoot.. heheh
