This is what some of the collaged heads looked like, living a top the grannie frocks.
This little pumpkin pig head sits googlee above a baby's pinafore.. circa 1955.
The eyes above,,, "see twice through one eye"
... is a sample of what was available to be coloured in on the table in the density of the armpit.
all layered with a carwash of frills.

this is Jim Woodring's Frank... photocopies of his actions were scattered throughout the tunnel.. as a perspective to what the tunnel travel could be like.

a cloud in the castle, a sleep awake chamber [Aug. 15th, 2005|04:35 pm]
Castle in the Clouds


im tyr's sister... in mtl.

tyr told me to tell you all about a structure we built at the cloud castle.. called....
the sleep awake chamber.

there are pics somewhere.. but it was a crazy thing that crawled along the wall in a 90 degree angle into a corner and along another wall.. like an elbow. built out of a weird framework of patchworked stuff.. and lots of fabric and collage..

theatricalised by guides, (there was a lineup).. first step into the chamber (tunnel) was to be mysted with a spray (with essential oils of some sort) that was ment to "put to sleep" a little like death and yet "awaken" the person into dreams.

They were led down the chamber and introduced to all the dresses hanging with collaged faces as diffrent characters in the dream world..

in the middle,, the arm pit, the corner.. was a little chill out space with black lights and colourfull over loaders.. like an afterlife , a rejuvination,, there was a fake prop vintage radio with a real radio concealed playing some sort of funny radio jitters...and a table with fluorencent markers to colour in blown up drawings i had made...trés calm.

After this around the corner was a vacume of air ( really a little vintage tube of a hair dryer) that excavated and replenished the sleep waker to awaken and be reborn into the next day and life. i think we intended to have bubbles blowing during the departures,, but maybe it didnt happen.
You enter another room in which "The Parlour Treats" performed which is viola and cello chamber music played with character and giggles.

the entire sleep-awake chamber was laced with little comix of jim woodrings.. Frank (the cat) comic,, lots of pink yarn.. canopies of floral patterns.. and peek holes to spy on the show happening that night,, and people in its attendance.

hihi cloud castlers,,,

so for you new generational types,, these are old skewl cloud castler images...
from before the days of when, as it is now, the castle made its mandatory migrational uplift drift float up haistings to its perch near cambie..
from the days of "the meatball"

so,, most people were out at a party where they were searving absynth
(across and down the street)
.. and it was apparently the best party ever..
but i missed it,,
because i was decorating this room,, at the meatball,,
in prep of the film shoot that was to take place the next day
in the bathtub room (one of the dirtiest crap filled rooms in the place)
we crammmmed all the crap to one side of the room,, so it was floor to cieling crap on one side..
and decorated the other side.. but hooray for film,, no one will ever know..

so sososo..

i think some of the absynth floated through the heroin mist of crack town,, and filtered itself though to my little room..

adam shamash actually filmed the whole thing on super8 and never developed it,, or did,, and it collects dust,, what a guy..
at least there is some vid,, and some stills,,, so enjoy ;)

The Sewing party went extremely well...

The boys played gameboy...

Except for Chris. He sewed a patch on his bag with thick blue thread, while I made him a black winks sweater...
