little Rodrigos

…because everyone should have a little Rodrigo in their life.
I’ve been threatening to make these for over a year and have finally done it. This is my first attempt at resin casting, and also I don’t do too much 3D work anyway…in fact, none at all. Perhaps that will change because this process was really really exciting.

SO–These are the guts! Just a little aluminium foil and some toothpicks to keep it all together.

Here he is being shown from whence he came! The silicon mold. He lost a hand in the process of removing him from this thing. That’s ok though.

LEGION! I made these in resin. Some are pink and some I kept in the opaque resin’s off-white.

I just needed to clean them up a little and paint in the eyes then they’re ready to go out to friends.

beads and breathing

Making these fulfils something in my long making-things-cycle (there are other cycles, like my daily routine, but my long cycle spans several months). In tandem I am also drawing nature (mostly flora) from observation, reading more than at other points, and running for distance rather than speed. All this stuff goes together right now. It all has to do with an enjoyment of breathing….I think. It’s like I’m drinking out of a big novelty straw as opposed to one of those little cocktail straws. And that is so close to how it actually feels that that is barely a simile.

It rains a lot in Manchester so most of these have been made in the rain. Consequently, the rain plays with the ink.

This is one of my favorite flowers–it just grows in my backyard. I don’t know what it is called, so if you know please send me a message They are called Aquilegia! (Thank you Rebecca for asking your grandmother who is a flower expert!). They look like little delicate pink hearts at the end of green veins.

for mira


As ever, for you.

Like Rod’s ‘the keys to everything that ever existed’, this piece is a rite. He is my twin, and sometimes we make art from the same place. This place in particular…we saw this place together, and things kept happening in our lives that just seemed to be the universe folding over, necessitating serendipities.

Millie walked a dead bird into the house in her mouth and dropped it next to me. I didn’t know what I was looking at at first.

As Cassandra explains, “the music takes a short sample of Kurt Cobain’s singing voice [from the song “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” as sang on the MTV Unplugged recording] and reveals facets of its quality and structure through repetition.”

As stargazer lilies here,

So, stargazer lilies re-cast.

A burning heart. A complete, un-compromised heart.  In the world I create, there are no fragments or missing pieces.

‘for mira’ is the telling of a story of a memory. Meaning, I now feel the distance from it’s catalyst events, and underwent the physio-alchemical act of  housing this ghost in my long-term memory. That’s what making this video finally did to me. That, or  the two things just so happened in parallel. Anyway, the end result is the same. Time resonances become more and more faint. Though as Terence McKenna said, if you pay close enough attention you can feel that Rome falls nine times an hour.

[A post I had previously made on March 13, 2015]

On March 13th I shot most of the footage for ‘For Mira‘.
It is a work performed by violinist, Mira Benjamin
and was composed by Cassandra Miller.

Making for mira into a music video opens up the possibility of exploring the piece’s repetition in a way that is unique to this medium. Cassandra, Mira, and Rodrigo are working closely to treat the final audio with that in mind.

There are still a few shots I want to get, and then of course there is the editing (which is really where the heavy lifting occurs), but here are a few production shots in the meantime while it all comes together.

Hands on deck that day: Rodrigo Constanzo, Richard Craig, Cassandra Miller, Mira Benjamin, myself.
