From the witchy hands of Gabríela Friðriksdóttir comes Crepusculum - her newest archaic-organic, proto-pagan, neo-ritualistic, chaos-elemental project . Yes, I made all these words up.

And to be even more annoying, I decided to not give you a preview of the actual work on show at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt but of past works, because, to be quite frank with you, Crepusculum reminded me very much (too much?) of my esteemed friends Kahn & Selesnick's work - only in a slightly more Burning Man fashion.

Opens this coming Wednesday, Sep 28 - the artist will be in attendance. Details below.

Perfect Outfit of the Day CXXXII

by suzanne_tumblr on October 24th, 2009

Born stubborn, me
will always be
before you count 123
I will have grown my own private branch
of this tree

You : gardener
You : discipliner
I can obey all of your rules
and still be : be

I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise

- Björk: Unison (Vespertine)

Björk's Wanderlust

Despite the fact that most tracks on Björk's Volta album have failed to convince me and that it might therefore be the first Björk album I'm not going to buy, I have to admit that I really like some of the aesthetic ideas Björk and her co-conspirators have come up with to illustrate her music.

My favourite video so far is beyond doubt Encyclopedia Pictura's Wanderlust which offers an alluring peek into an atavistic world inhabited by Sendakesque beasts and Ungereresque flora.
