I was thinking & interested in looking in human cannibalism after talking to some peers about projects they've got going on about cannibalism.
People normally tend to think it is horrific to eat another living being as I do too but I also feel the same about people cadging, farming and eating animals. The thought of it leaves me feeling sick to the stomach and find it just as distubring that people do still carry out these acts.
I wanted to do some photography including this idea, in hopefully a quite kooky way whilst been meaningful to also be playful.
I then started thinking about cannibalism and food fetishes; and produced some photographs
photography is not maybe not one of my strong point as I’ve never really had any teaching or played with it much. But I really enjoyed having my friend model for me and taking everything into account; placing a few suggestive items here and there.
I will defiantly be doing more photography throughout the year; Here is one of my final images.

Masks begun at midnight

I found this on an artist’s blog whilst looking through blogs for Victorian images, they got a Victorian trinket box...and inserted layers of glass, in each layer they places images and found objects..In the theme of past lovers and seductions.

Sticking a single pearl and some buttons to the lid, to symbolize that the context contains something personal.

This gas given my inspiration to try my 3d collages in a different way & also I have been thinking about how to show my journal in a little box might be quite sweet

Corner house opening + free drinks

Tonight was lots of fun, it was the opening night of "Artur zmijewski" a collective of polish artists all working in film medium.

Democracies: this was a series of short videos either footage from real events or re-enactments
I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy myself when I first arrived I’m not sure why maybe it
Was from all the shocking and nosey films... but as I started to look round I found a video
of the 10th Manifa, National Women’s Day, demonstration and counter- demonstration which took place on the 8th March 2009, Warsaw, Poland.
I remember seeing a sign saying "feminists are nartzis" and "abortion is the holocaust" they then moved on to say gay people are freaks and so on, I was so mad I got goose pimples.
Gallery 3:
Incased in a huge wooden shapely cave was a video been shown "Repetition" by Zemijewski
In order to test the results of Professor Philip Zimbardos infamous Stanford Prison Experiment were volunteers were given roles as either prison guards or prisoners. Zemijewski repeated this experiment in a purpose built prison enclosed in a basement. Volunteers were blindfolded and driven to the location on arrival they were given their roles and would be treat as either prisoner or guard.
Rule guide lines were set by experimenters; these were then given to the guards and passed onto the inmates. it was interesting to see how easily people will act out the roles they are given, it made me wonder if I would take the constant abuse from the officers or if I would remember it’s an experiment and I could refuse to any form of punishment they may try to give me. a "guard" in particular there was one guard who quickly became very controlling and power mad... soon bullying, and punishing prisoners for the most fickle things.
I remember studying this experiment briefly in my A levels, which for me made this piece all the more interesting

Plus on arrivel I was greated by a goody bag and a free drink token :)

David Lachapelle

I really enjoy Lachapelle's photography, hes very inspirational to me. the second picture has given me an idea for a different way to set out my collages
