Long Overdue

I made this video last year with one of my closest friends, Laerke Hooge Andersen, an awesome Danish pixie I study with in Central Saint Martins. This project was a part of our Biomimicry project where our textiles had to mimic nature in some behavioral way. We were inspired by bioluminescent sea creatures and mushrooms. We were also looking at the human body as a place to fuse these ideas for a wearable costume/dance piece. We created the costume using recycled tights, rice , beads, and ribbons. Enjoy the beaded, braided, balls suit dance. ( remember to watch at 480p)


Calling All Doodlers!

I have been guest blogging for the month of January on Doodlers Anonymous, a really great hub for spontaneous drawing, illustration, graffiti, graphic design, and oh so much more. I highly suggest checking it out and going through the archives, some really beautiful artists doing beautiful work. Thanks to my dear friend Rony Tako who is the creator and one of four facilitators for this fantastic site. A wonderful source of inspiration.

Project Glitter Trail Update

I have recently mail an express package of glitter to our dear friend John Honey in San Paulo, Brazil. He just told he his plans of using the glitter for a music video in the midst of a dance scene for his friend DJ Gut. We look forward to see Honey spread the Glitter Trail to it's third continent, South America!
I decided it's a good idea to spice things up and introduce John Honey our dear followers with some photos taken by Constance Mensh, styled by myself with John Honey and Mindy as models. These have not been retouched a bit FYI...enjoy a wild ride to the sparkle side! I took the photos with just the bottles as a study of sorts before the photo shoot as inspiration.


Don't be fooled by the rocks that she's got, she's still, she's still Jeni from the block.

Feast your eyeballs on these puppies. Novice glass caster Luren Jenison shares her experiments in cast glass. Such gems! This is Luren's second project I have seen making rock like earth resembling objects from new materials They do remind me of the rubber plastic objects Jesse Greenberg has made as parts of larger installations which make me feel like I am in imaginary futurist-o spaceship land much to my delight. Onward and upward on this magical spacekraft ride! Perhaps, I will feature Jesse and Mega Binx in a later post.
