I twist, I loop, I tape, I glue, I make my own obsessions. I imagine the world of imagination. I travel, and then I come back. Hypnotising colours of my tubes. Modern plastic material. You now have a mythology. You now whisper.
First Broadcast: Tuesday 26 May 2009 More4 Sarah Feltes's film looks at the untapped artistic resources of the human brain. Can transcranial magnetic stimulation unlock the hidden potential that is dormant in all our brains?"
Amazing documentary about people who haven't really chosen to make art. Beautiful and ispiring. Unfortunately I can't put the video here but you can whatch it on: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/painting-the-mind/4od#2930721
Here is my newest obsession...I can't wait to watch the full length. MATTHEW BARNEY, THE CREMASTER CYCLE TRAILER To watch absolutely. It's so refreshing to see beautiful intelligent work. Plus he is married with Bjork...Ouaou. Reminds me so much of La cité des enfants perdus (The city of lost children) by Jeunet& Caro. Same apocalyptic modernity.Oulala...shivers...
It's a funny thing blogs. I do mostly feel that I am talking in a big long and empty tube.Who's going to read this?Lost in the midst of another million blogs I really don't understand how anyone would find and read this one. Maybe it's just a good way for me to record the marvels I find on the internet...
I like to think of my clothes as "transformational": they represent a world where humans can become animals, the wind, where girls can become boys and boys can become girls. A world where one's imagination can be free.I have looked into ways in which people have diverted moral and social conventions, people such as transvestites, shamans, as well as mythological characters. I was fascinated by anything or anyone who is extraordinary. My inspiration has also come from my own drawings of extraordinary animals and people. Photos: Scott MacSween. Model: Scarlett Tull.
