Suburban Dreams

Best-home-of-allIconographically, the suburban house is as American as television (God knows, all its aerial search-and-sweep the sky like so many centipedal antennae). Only one very small, alien elements cloud the otherwise clear azure dome over suburban America -the uneuphemized, uncleansed, naked capitalist without any emperor’s clothes at all- the commercial strip shopping center.

Planet A

This is Planet A from Momoko Seto:

She creates hybrid mix-genre films by transforming everyday life elements into a poetic and singular universe.

(search engines show that people get to this blog by looking for “octopus” and “octopus porn”. Today is a better day for them!)

“Out of Water” from Judy Fox

judy fox ppowjudy fox worm2judy fox worm1Like the sea monsters that prowled the edges of the once flat earth, the Cephalopods and Worms threaten our boundaries. Primitive, alien, yet connected to our own predatory minds and soft flesh, they both attract and repel. They are a premonition of the human animal yet to evolve, and they remind us that the primordial persists within us. It is a fearful affinity that is allegorized in the earliest myths of creation and procreation, and is the heart of evolution.

Self Crypt

I’ve been busy and aroused for the past weeks and I’ll be experimenting more intense feelings for the next ones: I’m preparing a new series of photographs that are part of Bestiario and will be soon available for contemplation (more info to come).

One of them is a self-portrait that deeply explores the idea of embracing evil and it’s been such a self exploring experience that it sometimes does not allow me to sleep at night.

 

Water and other fluids

Mandy Barker’s “Soup”

Beautifully alarming.

At first, the visual power of a glorious, colorful chaos will hypnotize you like a mermaid song. Slowly, after starring for a while, the ugliness will erupt; danger, repulsion and awareness of a seriously sad and worrying issue. So glamorous and disgusting!

These impressive images reminded me of “Monster Soup” where this lady drops her tea cup scared by the microscope image of all the filthiness that inhabits Thames’s water, which at the time was London’s directly drinking source.

Fortunately now, we, lucky people, have access to potable water. Although, as clean as it might look, the cycle of water and karma (what goes around comes around) will bring all the corruption back to us. And on its way will also affect millions of other species that have nothing to do with it.

There are all sorts of things in the water. I know these girls that after moving to London, their tits started to grow remarkably. It sounds funny and maybe appealing in a very naive way but that is actually because the water is infested with high levels of estrogen from contraceptive pills.

Signs of sex changes on male fishes have been seen. Also, the most common cosmetic surgery within men in the UK is breast reduction.

Gorgeously scary.

(Well, their spread of feminine regulators is certainly out of hand! )

That’s one of the good reasons why eco-porn is so important: because we need not just new porn but new dirtiness!
