sunday inspiro

I think I'm actually starting to get back into the groove where I can't decide what to wear because I feel like I have too many options and not because I feel like I'm uninspired. This should probably lead up to an outfit but herm..my camera needs new batteries and, y'know, going to the store...leaving the house...walking..work...life's too hard. Anyway, there was this one spread in the new issue of RUSSH that's really stuck out in my mind (the whole issue is great but this spread is like WHOA) these past couple days. It comes in at around 56 seconds in this video:

RUSSH - ISSUE 29 - VIDFLIP from Russh Magazine on Vimeo.



This story has a kind of freshness. Not in a fresh, new idea type of way, or in a cool blue type of way (does that only make sense in my head?) but in a way that kind of gives a feel of the air outside if the photos all meshed together and became this awesome little world. Again, only makes sense in my head. But whatever! Some of these are from the spread, some just give me the same feel:
1, Tilda is awesome. 2, I'm beginning to like Juergen Teller more and more. 3, the colors!
In the early 1900's two young English girls photographed themselves with fairies they claimed only they could see. Alix recreated these pictures, um, AMAZINGLY.
I want to be an explorer!
The scene where Jim James and Calexico do Goin' To Acapulco in I'm Not There. This part of the movie takes place in an exiled Halloween town, not unlike Black River Falls, Wisconsin at the beginning of the 20th century.

Andrei Tarkovsky picture from the RUSSH Blog.

We went to this exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London called "Walking in my Mind" where ten artists created installations of what it would be like to, duh, walk through their mind. MAH GURL Yayoi Kusama made a room of polka dots, and there was a room by Chiharu Shiota entirely covered in dark wool thread with three big paper dresses hanging in the middle of the ceiling. We were told that for 5 or 6 days, three people just threw the balls of thread around the room and let it stick to the walls and ceiling. This is the picture I got, but there are much better ones at Susie's blog, because Susie manages to post about everything before I do, because Susie is epic, because, etc:Anyway, that was unrelated, but I had to throw in that picture somewhere, and this brings me to one of my favorite installations:
Yoshitomo Nara. I couldn't find a good picture of it but it was basically this tiny home with a little tv playing some heinous cartoon and lots of papers and work and toys everywhere. It would be nice to be a hermit if it meant enclosing myself in such a space, in a little world.
David Lynch. To be honest I have never seen any of his movies (hohoho, and you thought this post wasn't already pretentious enough! Er.) but I saw a book of all these weird artworks of his and am completely intrigued. One photo in the book was of a wall with lots of dead flies tacked to it and named under each one. Steve, Ed, etc. Speaking of bugs..The guy in this Avedon picture apparently used to sell honey at a farmer's market my family and I used to go to. I know I could never stand like this for a photo. Even looking at it makes me uncomfortable!
I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE.Ughhhhhh so good ughhhhhhhh

Has that whole "fresh" feeling I was babbling on about.

Oh great. Now that you're talking about the Eternal and David Lynch I anticipate the "you're only thirteen?!?!" comments will increase tenfold.
Speaking of lynch, I dunno if you've seen this but there was just a discussion post about him here:

AFitz said...

Oh I remember when I was younger they made a movie about those girls with the fairies. I went to see it with my mom thinking would be all about fairies and magic but it wasn't and my seven year old self was SO bored

Britte said...

Love that part from I'm Not There... imagine costuming that sequence?? Amazing...

by the way, watch Blue Velvet if your into Lynch. You would love it i know.

Oh and also, check this out:

so good... it seems like she is wearing Rodarte... but I'm not sure...

Rozie said...

Nara is my favorite favorite favorite! I'm planning on making a nara costume for halloween.

s_d said...

haha!
well this post was definitely a shpeal of a whole bunch of randomness
but i like it
and i'm really excited to see Where the Wild Things Are too...though i am kinda scared that it won't live up to my expectations
you know they were going to release it a while back, but the MPAA (stupid) ruled it too dark and scary for children, so the company had to remake it...which is stupid...b/c Where The Wild Things Are is suppose to be dark and scary!!!
gah!!
still can't wait to see it :]

style-magnet said...

TILDAAAAAA.

Ashley said...

Lots of inspirational stuff in this post! I'm kind of intrigued about the Where the Wild things Are movie..but I think I'll refrain. The book is too precious.

Cool magazine, Flower hats, guys covered in bees and WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D)))!!

Yandara Twisted' said...

I love this music (Goin' To Acapulco) is amazing and the metaphor of the film "I'm Not There" is also great! :DD

bobb said...

Al kinds of great things here. "Blue Velvet" is the first Lynch film I saw, it's violent and disturbing as many of his films are, but very well done.

I've always loved the "fairy" pictures. Alix sure did a great job in recreating them. Here's the story behind the photos.

hazel said...

OH MY GOD
yoshitomo nara is actually my favorite artist (or one of my top ten) i've always wanted to see his work in person. you should look up his giant tea cup sculptures, they're amazing.

Joanne said...

I love Tilda Swinton! She's so great! I cannot wait for the Where the Wild Things Are!! The room by Chiharu Shiota is crazy cool and the tiny home by Yoshitomo Nara is so cute!! :)

Cypriotchick said...

Those installations look super amazing! I can totally imagine you living in the cartoony one, 'cause it's perfect.

P.S. Does everybody like Tilda except for me? She kind of creeps me out.

Lina said...

Your way of writing is very lively. Like it!

This post was great:)

desertöse said...

dear tavi, what's the name of that movie you can't wait to see?? the picture of it makes me want to see it too, so urgently.

Kathleen said...

hah, I love David Lynch. his stuff is sooo twisted. I cannot belive a movie is being made of "Where The Wild Things Are"!

Tavi said...

Annafitz-I'M ACTUALLY A 40 YR OLD MAN!!!1! Oh man thanks for the massive post link. The book of all his works had lots of stills but also lots of his paintings and illustrations and I almost want to buy it just for those..

desertose-Where the Wild Things Are!

Britte-WOW, that video! Not Rodarte but I love the weird collage of a dress/poncho/thing..

yui-Ahh thanks for the suggestion, on my summer list.

Isabel-yes only she's AWESOME.

vamoose-Sorry, I found it on tumblr with no link!

emma-It's MUCH better than Nylon, by a billion times!!

s_d-Booo, I wonder what the "scary" version is like! Hope it's not lame now.

Samantha said...

That picture of the guy with the bugs all over him kind of freaked me out. :|

Exchange links?

Hanna said...

Dear child! It has been too long since you and myself exchanged words. I am beginning to twitch.

I highly recommend David Lynch. Start with "Wild at Heart" and avoid "Inland Empire" at all costs.

e.r.w. said...

a friend of mine is the pastry chef for the san francisco museum of modern, and she's making a pastry based off this avedon photograph. it's this honey pistachio parfait (which is actually kind of like ice cream, it's not like the big parfaits in the huge glass with layers of fruit and hot fudge) that is shaped in a little square, and the outside of it is these while chocolate tiles that have bees screenprinted all over them. i tried the prototype and it was amazingly delicious.

dust said...

David Lynch is a must, but take your time and yes, avoid Inland Empire.

Junya!Me too!

Linh said...

Hey, Alix was not alone on the project... She took her pictures w/ La Méchante, you know her ? Elodie, that's her name. So they both took photos...

owkaholiic said...

Oh yeah, I read about these girls who were thought to have not known anything about photo editing forever ago, and there were fairies in the pictures. It was in some book on fairies..
