where do you get the tentacles you use???
I get the tentacles, along with all dead sea creatures, at local international food markets that are meant for food consumption. I don’t kill anything. The markets usually specialize in Korean, Chinese, Mexican, and other national products that can’t be found at typical general markets. Octopus tentacles are most often quite expensive, and have an extremely short window before deep putrefaction sets in. Rotting octopus smells exquisitely corrupt. Thanks!
Thank you for the follow. I've only just come across your work which I can only describe as crazy... and I love crazy! Just wanted to ask a few questions that come to mind when viewing your work, what drives you to create these sculptures/images?
I like crazy too, very much so indeed. Sometimes I will just look at an object and dissect it in my mind. What parts would fit outside of it, what makes that object a non-object, what happens if I were to destroy the object that makes it an object? After that, it’s just how much, or how little, and which instruments would help the new-object. Hope that makes some sense. Cheers, Max
Aaaaaannnnnd I just saw your tumblr. I must admit, your works are upon my favorite in photography. They are so simply and playful, eerie, mysterious... man! Some of them I absolutely love! I'm pretty broke right now, but somewhere down the line can I buy some prints from you or can I trade you something in return for printing some of your photos to hang at home? Your tumblr totally made my day! And now I'm diving into your videos. Seriously, wow. -Cheers!
Thanks Lilbroblu!! In the past, I’ve traded artwork with other Tumblrs. This is a great platform to see new art and I think it’s a fair deal. Anything you consider to be your own work I would gladly trade a print for and hang on my wall. There’s a link somewhere on my Tumblr through my website to find my email, just let me know. Thanks again, Max
