"The crowd -- it's a tough crowd in this square, I've got to tell you -- but the crowd do like a bit of panda."

i made a drawing based on all the time i have been spending in the time vortex lately. references that last episode of doctor who, utopia, with a bit of spoiler-type action. please not to be clicking unless you know or want to know pivotal dramatic climax of same!



there is more drawing underneath this! )

comments and critique welcomed! although i did already notice the dodgy right eye... and the dodgy hair... frankly it's all a bit dodgy to my eyes at this point. i should probably try again or somesuch.

[FRAY]play



is a virtual/physical curatorial game engine, in which players will, through gameplay, view and also participate in various artworks and art practices. Players will be arranged into four groups, or teams, and will have to solve a series of separate but intertwining problems and puzzles. The method of solution of these problems will vary with individual teams and constitutes the main gameplay. Gameplay is not merely the practice by which solutions are arrived at, but also the solution itself -- in other words, the way in which players must think and associate different art and art practice to arrive at the solution to a given level of the game also reflects the over-riding theme of the game itself, and thus necessitates thoughtful consideration of artworks; their meanings, their relationship to other works, and their relationship to the game.

In addition, artists whose work is included in the game are asked to be active participants in the development of the game, thus changing the passive role of artists in standard curatorial practises into an active one.



[FRAY]play is a project that I have been working on all semester, with three in-class collaborators (Tamas Kemensky, Chris LaGarce, and Beatriz Albuquerque), who made three of the stages, and two others ([livejournal.com profile] copperbadge and [livejournal.com profile] cesario and I worked on a stage together); I also developed the website (ultra awesome dispenser and recombinator coding is by Tamas Kemensky, of Busker). Project launch is on Saturday, May 13, at the [FRAY] after party at the Chicago Art Department. If it is successful, [FRAY]play should be an extremely interesting event/project/piece.

In honour of random wireless access and staying up until all hours making art projects, I present some machinima induced picturage:



Meanwhile, I've been getting all sorts of terrible headaches -- just got the third one today that is so excruciating that it is making me nauseous. Ah, finals week, how shall I survive you?

Sub Rosa is site of the month over at the Baker Street Dozen!

I've really admired Charles Prepolec for a long time, so this is very nice.

Under the cut are no spoilers for HBP, but merely the four page comic that I made while I was at Ox-Bow. Click for art!

I apologise for the quality of the images, but they are scanned from photocopies, as the originals are rather too large for this scanner.

Here is a sketch for a proposed comic book that I plan to make... someday...

[In response to the question, Why is Hamlet so important in Russia?]:
"I think because it is the source of Shakespeare's questions. Why do we live, and do we have to live? Do we live for the light, the truth, or for lies and intrigues? Do we live to say that, 'I, Man, an the most marvelous being in this world?' Or is it that, 'I am different from animals only because I wear a suit'?"
-- Innokenti Smoktunovski

"I personally think that Hamlet is an absurd hero. His first soliloquy suggests to me, when he says that 'My uncle is no more like my father than I am to Hercules,' -- is what he picks out of the air to compare his opposite silhoutte to: Hercules. In other words, implicit in his first soliloquy is, 'I'm no hero, ladies and gentlemen, don't look at me to get everything right. Because it's not me."
-- Ben Kingsley

"Here is a man who is in the middle of life and death, who is concerned about issues, who is very much not cool, and not sympathetic, and not -- but someone who is fiery, and hot, and full of life, and pain, and anger, and anguish."
-- Nicol Williamson

[On Hamlet's wordplay, etc.]:
"It really is like Muhammed Ali. I mean, he's round those bum-a-month guys -- I mean, he dances rings round them."
-- Nicol Williamson

[On the closet scene]:
"It's a domestic scene. Domestic crisis -- of enormous proportions, and somebody in that room is dead that was alive at the beginning of the scene. Nevertheless, it ends with, 'Goodnight, mother', and all that that means -- a valediction to that relationship in its previous form. 'Goodnight' -- goodbye to the old mother, incidentally you, who I've just seen, at last, after all the clutter; I've burnt all the toyboxes, and I can see you at last, goodnight you, whom I've seen for the first time in my life, and you have seen me, you've seen me grow up, because I'm dragging a dead body out of your bedroom. This is me, a man, doing this. Not a child."
-- Ben Kingsley

[On Hamlet's behaviour at the end of the play]:
"I had very much the feeling that here was someone who did want to live, but suspected, as people sometimes say...'I think I'm gonna die.'"
-- Nicol Williamson
