big top

I've been meaning to shoot my big top for awhile and I finally got around to it yesterday. It's the second sculpture in my series of work I'm doing about the circus/fair. Isn't it weird how the polaroids turned out so whitewashed? People ask me all the time why I still use polaroid film when I can just alter my photos in photoshop. This is precisely that reason. The unpredictability. I'm almost done with my ferris wheel which I'm pretty excited about. I promise not to take as long to post photos of it.

(forgot to mention it's made out of wax infused paper and thread.)

movie stills: melancholia

Sorry for the lengthy post. I just saw this movie this weekend (3 times) and fell in love. I've been waiting for this movie to be released since I heard about it at the beginning of this year. It did not disappoint. This movie is so visually beautiful and the cast is spectacular. Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alexander Skarsgard, Keifer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt and Stellan Skarsgard were all perfectly cast in this fantstical film. It's out now online and on demand and will be released in theaters Nov.

Doesn't look like such a fun place to work? All that sparkle and pizazz. I would certainly enjoy getting out of bed every morning to go to that.

bio couture

Suzanne Lee is revolutionizing couture fashion design by actually growing her own "fabric". That's right, I said growing. Apparently you can actually grow solid material using bacteria. It's pretty crazy. You'll have to watch this video to fully appreciate it. While I wouldn't actually want to wear it, it's absolutely beautiful and amazing what she's doing.

there and back again

Back from our trip to the beach. Would have been more fun if there hadn't been 30 mph winds and some rain, but we still had a good time. Here's a preview of one of the many shots I took. This one includes that crown of branches I was telling you about. Will post more tomorrow.

movie interiors: Down With Love

Barbara's Apartment:


Catcher's Apartment:

I have to admit, when this movie first came out, I had no interest in seeing it. Then one day it happened to be on tv so I gave it a chance. I thought it was adorably hilarious. Maybe because I've seen almost every Doris Day movie out there, but this movie was really cleverly done. Of course, the amazing set design didn't hurt either. I love the polar opposites of their apartments. Hers is bright white filled with punches of bright pinks and yellow while his apartment is all dark woods with hi-tech gadgets and a color scheme of deep blues and hints of orange.
