For the last few months I've been walking around with hot wheels and doll shoes in my pockets. I came across a huge lot of vintage hot wheels and decided to make 'girly' things out of them, but every time I sat down to get started I ended up playing with them and forgetting what my task was so they would end up in my pockets. I've finally got the first batch of these broaches done. They are all one of a kind.
I can't lie. I'm fascinated with Luxury goods (Don't get it twisted I said FASINATED not necessarily impressed) and I'm fascinated with remixes and mash ups, in both visual and audio space. So while pursuing the Internets (a.k.a. the other side of my brain) I came across this wonderfully disturbing piece by Meryl Smith. It's pretty much the mash of of my fascinations. That's right Meryl, who needs the dog that shits in the expensive bag, when one can just have the dog bag..one in the same...no confusion...no shit in bag...done and done.
