Madame Bink Explains

This silent little video came about after hearing of the number of people that still believed in the literal interpretation of creation, and more to those who came up with such fanciful creations as intelligent design theory.
I ask Madame Bink to explain some of her thoughts on our origins and about art in general.

Xainafairy from Motown to Slab City

This was a shoot with Xaina in 29 Palms, California. I've given this set of images its name because Xaina is from Detroit, and because Slab City is the most "beat" place in this very beat of places. (Well, I can't deny Detroit its own share of beatitude.)

A place described by an old Airstream, faded broken trucks, and a far-away look in the eye; by the
Bagdad Cafe or a Sam Shepard play; by Gram Parsons' departure.

Watching Salome Dance

Watching Salome Dance
12 1/2 x 34 1/2

Watching Salome Dance is the title of my new header image which is part of my Light Dances project.

When I put this set of images together it suggested a story; an ancient tale, told my many– notably by a man known for walking his pet lobster along Oxford's High Street while a student, Oscar Wilde. Thus the name Watching Salome Dance. I hope to do more on this theme.

The collaborator in this piece is Heidi Gaines (MM#152446) whom I wish to thank for a wonderfully creative half-day.
