Ill communication

Its funny making things for people, especially when descriptions come in another language. Here’s one that won’t see the light of day…will post the desired interpretation of the image as soon as its made. Its been a weird day, finding a common tongue between Japanese, and German and English, caught in a odd feedback loop, hopefully solved now. See here

Glastonbury sideshow Studio work

Giving Dolls

Just back the secret workshop deep in the country where preparations for Glastonbury are in full swing. Steel frames are coming together, the ‘barkers‘ have met, and the ‘oncers’ are emerging. As you can see the prizes are really coming along, 3 balls for knicker, 7 balls for ¬£2. Try your luck in the unfairground at Glastonbury, between Shangrila & Arcadia. Look out for “CrackHeads” or “The Gobbler” sideshows with a difference from the twisted minds of the Dotmaster and Sam Haggerty.

Only took 6 months

At Last finished, one of two small maquettes (one aluminum, one card) . Although made to test construction of the larger commission, these smaller ones threw up problems of their own. Some elements of the larger work could not be reduced due to their complexity. The dollar and Mao buck were silkscreened in these smaller editions to recreate the feel of the larger work in smaller scale. Both were both mounted on a backing board to raise them off the wall.

Printing in the studio

In the studio with Berit and silkscreens today. Playing with recent elements, trying versions, overprinting old work, trying out materials. The best bits are those long shots, the bits of things you remember you have and make them better by adding something. The worst, the things you forget to try and the things that looked good, but now don’t. More shots on Flickr

Mao tea cake

Couldn’t resist a silk screened chairman on a favorite tea time Tunnocks wrapper. Lets hope either party don’t sue.
