Close Up and Personal No.1…

16/03/2015

Taking a departure from moving fotovideos and grid-locked fotomosaics, my latest foto venture is an Albelli fotobook ‘close up and personal no.1’ : a slim volume of 30-something pages [as oppose to the 250+ images tome of the earlier Blurb fotobook ‘Utilitarian: A Pavement Level Perspective’ on all-things-manhole ]

How close up?  The images are mostly in macro mode…

and personal? Well…

I made the potato salad

I grew the marigolds

I’ve owned a blue-haired troll since 1999

I watch detective forensic dvds

As an ex-Nissan owner, I find Tarmac Terrorist a nice phrase but a noisy concept

I don’t like getting raindrops on my specs

I do like Boogaloo Stu’s shoes!

So here’s a taster image:

Brighton Trans*formed Exhibition Engagement…

18/08/2014

The making of an exhibition: vision and tissues, dramas and hobnobs, budgets and tea bags, politics and pizza,  hormones and pinking shears, printers ink and chocolate, red tape and hula hoops, thunderstorms and batteries, persons and petrol, egos and ice cream, laptops and bed linen, faith and sticky-back plastic…

Let Them Eat Cake…

To borrow the apparently incorrect &/or misquoted hackneyed phrase of the late Marie Antoinette… the latest ‘foodshare’  (for those nearer &/or on the bread line) that I’ve encountered was this past Tuesday: following the usual very good, hot vegan lunch at Brighton Unemployed Centre and Families Project (I volunteer on/for their food-growing allotments), a dark chocolate cake – lavishly decorated with thick slabs of chocolate – was cut into many small pieces and shared by the usual mixed bunch lunch crowd.  Said cake was the offering to the Centre by the uber chocolatiers of East Sussex fame, namely Choccywoccydoodah.  Not able to afford their delicacies normally – but well used to snapping images of same through their shop windows – this was a shared treat to savour with my mug of Ovaltine: ‘Yum’ in a word!

Such treats – shared (aren’t potlucks always the best feasts?) or solitary fare – are a luxurious indulgence to calorifically-dumb-down my Aspie angsty and/or  hyper-adrenalised or downward-dumps days… a dose of which was gladly ‘needed’ last Tuesday in the throws of the stresses of now (not-viewing-exhibitions but) co-curating the ‘Brighton Trans*formed’ multi-media-multi-venue exhibition due to hit the streets of our Gender-Dysphoria-by-the-Sea City in time for Trans* Pride No.2, the last weekend of July 2014…

Since the About-This-Blog statement promises “a celebration of all things aesthetically pleasing, often edible and in-the-main inanimate”  it seemed high time to slideshow-share some more often-edible-but-questionably-inanimate cake-y offerings devoured by sight, smell and taste senses over the past 10-or-so months… (with captions for visually-impaired and blind sweet-toothed folk)
