LITTLE PEOPLE PROJECT: SLINKACHU



{The 'Little People Project' started in 2006. It involves the remodeling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humor. I want people to be able to empathize with the tiny people in my works.} http://slinkachu.com/







{What happens to the works you create? Do you build them and simply leave them to their fate? Do you ever revisit them to see how they’re doing?

I leave all the figures behind after I photograph them. To be honest, I prefer not to know what happens to them after I leave. Many are probably destroyed — stepped on, swept away — but for me, it’s far better that their fates remain unknown. It feels right, somehow, that they really are lost.} NEWSFEED







The “Little People Project” is showing at the ANDIPA GALLERY in London (Sept. 27 – Oct. 27) and in New York (Oct. 3 – 7) at the BROOME STREET GALLERY.

RECORD LABELS: INDEPENDENT vs MAJOR

This is what Immortal Technique thinks...


“It’s like a woman that wants to marry an abusive rich man because she figures she can take the ass-whooping for a few years and get some money from the divorce,” said Immortal Technique in a video posted on 2DopeBoyz. “That’s just the ass backwards way to think to me. I’ve always told people that independent was the way to go. I’ve always pushed that message and I think that the movie is a big part of that. Saying ‘Look, if I was signed to a major label this couldn’t happen.’ They don’t want me. They don’t want the real thing. They want what looks like the real thing because the real thing would tell them something about themselves.” -http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.21216/title.immortal-technique-compares-being-signed-to-a-major-label-to-being-in-an-abusive-relationship

UNDERWATER SCULPTURE: JAMES TAYLOR


{In 2006, Taylor founded and created the world's first underwater sculpture park. Situated off the coast of Grenada in the West Indies it is now listed as one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His latest creation is MUSA (Museo Subaquatico de Arte), a monumental museum with a collection of over 450 public sculptural works, submerged off the coast of Cancun, Mexico; described by Forbes as one of the world's most unique travel destinations. Both these ambitious, permanent public works have a practical, functional aspect, facilitating positive interactions between people and fragile underwater habitats while at the same relieving pressure on natural resources.}




{Taylor's art is like no other, a paradox of creation, constructed to be assimilated by the ocean and transformed from inert objects into living breathing coral reefs, portraying human intervention as both positive and life-encouraging. Numerous publications and documentaries have featured his extraordinary work, including the BBC, CNN, USA Today, the Guardian, Vogue, New Scientist and the Discovery Channel, yet nothing can quite do justice to the ephemeral nature of his art; for each actual visit to his sites is both unique and subject to the dynamic, fluctuating environment of the ocean.} UNDERWATERSCULPTURE.COM
