Final Proposal

I'm not planting myself too far from the Club Kid tree this time, so I'm content with this idea.

Goal: To garner and document reactions and curiosity from civilians and passersby.




After learning about Leigh Bowery, I came to understand that people who dress in a "crazy" manner - managing to stick out completely from most people - do so in accordance to location. If you're living in a fashion hub such as New York or London, you'd have to step it up quite a bit to actually stand out. I understand that Leigh Bowery's styles are a bit too extreme to get away with in a less than fashion-busy city such as Baltimore, and could put me in danger. I'm also incapable of grasping such designs, and I'm aware that he went through a lot of pain and discomfort to achieve his artistic vision. So I thought, how do I tickle Baltimore's senses?

Natty Boh.



I think it would be interesting to create several Bowery-style masks and casually release them in public, documenting their reactions.

Mmmm, Dario

The department and Tracy Jayne really need to own this book ASAP. Dario Robleto works with death and mourning in the antebellum style, using lots of hair, paper, photos, fabric to create really dynamic works. He's a friend of Allison Smith's.

Project #3 Progress...

I'm afraid to bring my progress to the station building because of the weather, but here's my trial and error:





I don't like the line on the left side, and I'm considering spray painting it. I'm also thinking: Instead of using the cool paper, I might use fabric and bone/stuff it into the same shape (as my sketch)... The paper wasn't long enough for my original idea, but I may be able to extend it with the rest of the (torn) paper. With fabric, I'd be able to create the kimono mo(train) effect I want:



Input/suggestions would be nice. :)
