Big in Brighton

A weekend in Brighton with Angela Chick and Yannik Eilers. We had big ideas: making miniature underwater sets for Yannik to shoot using his new underwater camera. This didn’t happen, but we thought of these ideas to go with the underwater theme:

  • putting milk in the water to make it cloudy
  • underwater treasure coral
  • an underwater butcher selling horses and man-meat
  • an underwater office
  • putting dye in the water
  • putting our faces in the water

I did make the coral though. More of that soon. We made lots of other things, Yannik scanning in lots of images from old picture books and editing in Photoshop – they were mostly rude. Angela worked on more of her embroidery hoops, and made “a couple of really shit collages that I didn’t even like.” She also made us delicious food.

I collaged, and I collaged a lot. Here’s what I made:

Men statues: “they made people feel quite uncomfortable” Made on old photographic paper – words scraped on with a pin (ouch) and head collage.

ALL these things are about to take off. Arrow found in the weekend papers, strange words: ‘sno-cats, majestic peaks, penguins and seals, fur seals and colorful markets’ found in the index page of an old encyclopedia.

I found some men with interesting expressions. (best faces found in Money and Sport sections)

“Hi, are you coming out on the piss?”
