Oh, How I Just Love Surprises!

This greeted me when I arrived at McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC today:

I'm Doing It Again!

The last time that I finished up work for a massive show then had down time, I created a myriad of 1/6th scale tableaus that I painstakingly set up and photographed as a counterbalance to "serious" art.  History is repeating itself, although perhaps more intelligently this time, since I'm really trying to create a confusion between what is a miniature set and what is a real room. I had starting going this route about a year and a half ago, but didn't have the wherewithal at the time to keep pushing the limit, but I've create some scenes this weekend that have come out pretty well:

This is a redo of one that I tried last year. I used flash this time to simulate the look of a point-and-shoot camera in an actual room. I think it's more convincing that even lighting.

When I began the first one, I thought it might just be a pointless redo of my previous kitchen scene, but I like the vantage point here a bit better. If you just give it a once over, it's pretty convincing.

So, this is pretty much the series.  I'm going to probably move on. The bad thing about the "Hoarders"-inspired scenes is that, while amusing, they make their point rather quickly.

Shipping Time


Glad to have my living room back.
