» Curio City

Which is also known on the tubes as CurioCity.org.

Here you'll find the flotsam and jetsam from the collisions between my interests and the Internet, a bit of cosmic debris, and the small, crunchy bits that collect in the gutters of my mind. If you like what you find, you may also like the longer original works at Hidden City. On the other hand, if you are interested in the person behind this collection, you can find out more than you need to know here, or find my on seemingly numberless services as mkhall. And if you are the person who likes to do such things, you can leave me a message at 786/664-7070.

Here’s the sexuality section of the posters my GSA will be putting up around the school!

These posters are by no means exhaustive and I only put the bare basics of each sexuality on the poster. If there’s a glaring error in a definition or something please tell me so I can fix it before we put these up in real life!

So I identify as bisexual but some sexualities like pan sexual confused me a little. This was really helpful.

Animatronic Installation

A bizarre unnamed art installation piece which features a masked female dancer, put together for an exhibition by Jordan Wolfson at the David Zwirner Gallery, New York.

Created with Hollywood special effects company Spectral Moments, the dancer has facial recognition tech so viewers who approach it will be seen back, and convincingly lip-syncs to speech played in the background - video embedded below:

Presented here for the first time, Wolfson’s animatronic sculpture combines film, installation, and performance in the figure of a curvaceous, scantily clad woman covered in dirt marks and wearing a witch mask. Unlike the artist’s two-dimensional subjects, this life-size character was developed in close collaboration with a special effects studio in California used by major Hollywood productions. The woman can be encountered on a one-on-one basis in a mirrored room in the gallery, creating a different kind of viewing experience that intensifies the importance of the gaze found throughout Wolfson’s work.

The exhibition runs until the 19th of April - you can find out more here
