Just booked a lunch spot at the new Cat Cafe in Melbourne for next week!
Douglas Gordon - 24-hour Psycho (1993)
"The work consists entirely of an appropriation of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 Psycho slowed down to approximately two frames a second, rather than the usual 24. As a result it lasts for exactly 24 hours, rather than the original 109 minutes.
The film was an important work in Gordon’s early career, and is said to introduce themes common to his work, such as recognition and repetition, time and memory, complicity and duplicity, authorship and authenticity, darkness and light.”
Because I’m fighting a cold and feeling like shit, I’ve been in a make-up buying frenzy - buying a heap of stuff at Chanel, then a heap of stuff at Mecca Cosmetica and finally a concealer wheel at Kryolan, where I got into a conversation that went from cosmetics to politics to partying so hard that your face falls off.
And I got two compliments on my eyebrows! It was a good outing.
of shadow I have brought back to you:
this decay, this hope, this mouthful
of dirt, this poetry.”
I’m inputting some amateur photography into a database and all the descriptions could be Type O Negative song titles
