Beautiful chaos.

Collage materials collected since 2005

It's funny to look through things I've held on to for so many years. It's even more peculiar when they have nothing to do with my past but someone else's.

Found objects are the majority of material I use in my collages - some of the items are random fortunes, receipts, or scraps of paper that caught my eye. For whatever reason I grabbed it an have kept it for years.

Now that I am back using these materials again I need to start collecting and adding to my supplies. Let the search begin.  

Humility in humor: Force Majeure.

Force Majeure Trailer for the Cannes Film Festival 2014 movie directed by Ruben Östlund

What I love about this film is how subtle human interaction creates humor throughout. Even though the avalanche is an extreme event that triggers the storyline it is purely a commentary on how humans react to events and one another. This is what makes it relatable, humble, and endearing. Also the art direction is beautiful.
