TOTEMS OF THE PAREIDOLIA

These works are from the Pareidolia series, they are bangles that stack up to become totem poles. They are made up of pyrography and some very special ochres I collected from the Flindrs Ranges in South Australia, some of these colours are six hundered million years old, some of the oldest paint in the world, other colours are bark washes, tea tree pitch, coriopsis flower, eucalypt and tea tree charcoal and many other natural pigments that I have collected and processed myself.

Old Fangs - a beautiful animated short produced by the Cartoon Saloon.

In the early 1950s, the Betty Crocker Company introduced a cake mix so that people could readily make excellent tasting cakes at home. No muss, no fuss: just add water, mix, and bake. The product failed. “The cake mix was a little too simple. The consumer felt no sense of accomplishment, no involvement with the product. It made her feel useless.” Betty Crocker solved the problem by requiring the cook to add an egg to the mix, thereby putting pride back into the activity. Adding the egg gave the act of baking a sense of accomplishment, whereas just mixing water into the cake mix seemed too little, too artificial.
