A second offering for this weeks Kick About relating to the art of Ruth Asawa. This set of images and the occupying videos also inspired a different set of videos that didn’t make the cut – transpiring from a filmic method used for this slew of static images documenting the chemical reaction of household ingredients.

This weeks Kick About on Red’s Kingdom is the artwork of Ruth Asawa. I was reminded very much of the fluid melting magic of lava lamps and, in certain elements of Asawa’s creations, I envisioned eyes that reminded me very much of Hitchcock and Dali’s dream sequence in the film, Spellbound. My images were created from photographing melted wax accumulated on a wine bottle over a period of time, with a couple of videos of my own eyes overlaid on top to pay homage to that surreal dream sequence.
