A Global State of Pareidolia – First List of My Connections with Group

EM 15 Doug Fishbone’s Leisure Land Golf | Venice Biennale

To be invited to show is always a privilege. Quad had previously realized a large work of mine so I knew they understood the intensity that surrounds how I work (re: my requirement to be involved in the complete process of the making and installation of the work and the necessity to adjust elements during the making). In my collaboration with EM 15 I appreciated enormously the patient acceptance of my methods and the tolerance shown towards this demanding approach. An example of this was the importance for me to choose a fabricator with whom I knew I could collaborate.

Dancing (Political?)

At a conference in Oslo (Norwegian Artists Research Forum) I met a woman over breakfast also researching the 1890's in British history - she is writing about Dartington Hall. We spoke about the re-thinking of the body in modernist dance which began to emerge in that period - specifically women's bodies and also the odd relevance of Theosophy of this time. We drifted onto the conditions that allowed fascism to rise in the coming century and the right wing elements in turn of the last century avant-garde.

Dancing in Helgoland

Travelling to Helgoland I found small signs of the relationship to Zanzibar. I also found the deep pit in the landscape from the largest bomb ever discharged, dropped by the British. Next to the crater is a memorial to Heisenberg, at the spot where he allegedly conceived of the H bomb, (although I believe the crater from the British bomb and his epiphany on the H bomb actually have no causal link). An extremely odd coincidence?

We attended a village hall event on the island which comprised of sea-shanties in English rounded off with bongo playing from Tanzania.

More on the dwarves mug

I was just reading another biography of LF in which it states that Snow White was her inspiration to become a dancer:

Then, like one of those signpost moments that define Riefenstahl’s life and career, she visited the theatre for a presentation of the ballet "Snow White". From that moment on, and without question, she knew that she was to become a dancer. Along with the theatre, her hobbies as a child were to read Fairy Tales ...
