Miranda July's Tribute to Extras

Ever wonder what becomes of film extras? Are they forever people in the background who have been watched but never seen? This clever series of photographs by Miranda July puts those very people centre stage. She re-shoots herself as all the forgotten cast members from famous films. Re-dressed, re-posed and remembered.

Hello everyone.. here are a couple of pieces I've been working on.. the first is one for my sister here in London, that one is finished, and the second one is for another sister, its from a photo she took in Palestine, and its a surprise for her birthday, so I'm hoping she likes it!! I'm finding it hard to get the colour of the sheep right, they seem to be coming out a bit bright yellow but I want it to be going to take a bit of time to get it right..

'A little preview'

Dear Tindersboxers,
My apologies for zero response in the last six months as I've been extremely busy.
I really like the idea of showing some work in progress, so here I am.
I began a mentoring program in June with Ruth Le Gear, The Firestation artists studios and ADI in Dublin.
This was an amazing opportunity to access and condense my practice. We've decided to put a book together on my work and show the creative, visual process of the mentoring program which will be published by December.
Here is a little preview, it's a photo from one of our meetings at The Science Gallery in Dublin, during the exhibition 'The Beauty of Chemistry'.
I'm very excited about putting together a book on my work, so I thought I'd share it...... Thanks. Kathy

Rob Ryan interview

Baby I’m Yours - Breakbot

Here's a pretty cool hand-painted watercolour animation by Irina Dakeva and her team which took three and a half months and over 2000 individual paintings.
