Ukraine-based Tania Shcheglova and Roman Noven are a photography duo better known as Synchrodogs. Naturally I adore the strange allure surrounding their images; scary, surreal, strange and sexual all words which could be applied. I don’t know exactly what to make of it but I know I like it! See more over at Life Lounge.
We’ve got about a week to go before the Alice Cooper freak show auditions where will be feeding the press & “interacting” (don’t ask). Delighted to say the awesome Thefty is working as an art director on the project alongside myself, and she’s even done a post with some great gory cake illustrations, and a good luck message to all the bakers (below).
We’re going for a Silent Hill theme with Mamma Jamma Cakes making a cake bust of THE infamous Silent Hill nurse as the centre piece cake, and lest we forget these amazing Silent Hill cake pops I have already shared. Guerilla Science will also be providing us with some brains! There is a lot more in the pipeline and whilst we like to keep a few secrets for the big day I can share below Helena’s rough concept diagram for the table.
I have even got stuck in and produced 2 Silent Hill cupcake stands for the table shown below. I have to say I am pretty pleased with it (and the Facebook group appear to like it too) considering I made it with some old bandages, chipped plates, fake blood, a bruise wheel and items from my kitchen cupboard for colouring (gravy / soya / tea / vinegar / beetroot / flour & water glue).
This week I am mainly filming & working with Mick Rock (and loving my job):
Idea Generation Gallery present a retrospective of the legendary photographer, Mick Rock, and showcase his work documenting the most outrageous moments, people and legends in music history in association with Zippo. Celebrated as ‘The Man Who Shot the 70s’, Mick Rock’s images define rock n’ roll. Rock launched his career in 1972 with his portrait of an unknown David Bowie and spent the next four decades capturing the most fascinating and exciting characters in rock music. This outstanding exhibition will coincide with the publication of Rock’s new book Exposed: the Faces of Rock n’ Roll, which includes previously unseen and unpublished images, as well as rare and unexpected portraits.
Lots more to come this week – it’s going to be busy but fun…
