Hollywood Dream Machines

I love screen-used movie artifacts. If something was used in a film, handled by someone famous and respectable, and played a role critical to entertaining millions of people, then it holds tremendous value to me. I feel the same way about other artifacts too, it’s just that fewer artifacts from film and television are preserved and displayed in public, so it’s very special when entire exhibitions are curated around such items.

Mirage and Desert X

Desert X is an art festival held every two years in the Coachella Valley in Southern California. It is not so much a cluster of art installations in the same way that, for example, The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is (that festival confines its installations to a couple of city blocks in Fitzroy), but instead site specific installations are scattered in disparate areas throughout the valley, so it can be more challenging, by design, to see them all. You should be prepared to drive, and wear cool breathable clothing and bring water.

The Gertrude Street Projection Festival

I was at home, looking for something to do and browsing the internet like I do for cool stuff (like Der Drachenstich), when I came across Vivid Sydney. It is by all accounts, stunning.

Star Wars and the Power of Costume

When I heard that Star Wars and the Power of Costume was going to be coming to the Denver Art Museum in Colorado, much like Dismaland, I immediately set about planning a trip there.

Dismaland

In July of 2015, I was sitting in a hotel room in Melbourne,  Australia, watching the news, as I prepared to go out for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, when I saw news confirming that Banksy was building Dismaland.

Drone footage displayed the tattered castle and the tweaked tractor trailer. Right then and there, I decided I was going to go

At Home With Monsters

Guillermo Del Toro makes movies that make money, and so, Guillermo Del Toro makes money, and when you make money, you can start collecting things, and so, Guillermo Del Toro did that. He collected the hell out of things from Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, and action films, along with a trove of related art and literary works, and he then proceeded to create a retreat for himself in California called Bleak House in Southern California which he filled with the stuff.

Then, I speculate, one of four possible things happened
