The Science of Sleep is one of my favourite films. Lauri Faggioni makes all the animals and in the extras on the DVD the interview with her made me want to make lots of stuff.
In another interview she says: "Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted." - Martin Luther King, Jr. I like that.
Here is a clip.
The song on this video is called: I Sink I Swim, by the Icelandic band Seabear.

Re previous post Liberty's Tana Lawn, the type of floral pattern which has been about since the 1920's is what Chloë Sevigny is using for her Opening Ceremony Line and the Floral Dunks use the same stuff - Coincimental. Loving both so much. Need these shoes (you don't need them says my beautiful Mama's voice in my head!).

Nan Goldin is putting on two slideshows next weekend at the Tate. She is the coolest photographer - her stuff documented the post-punk new-wave music scene in New York in the 70's and 80's. The main themes of her early pictures are love, gender, domesticity, and sexuality. She has affectionately documented women looking in mirrors, girls in bathrooms and barrooms, drag queens, sexual acts, and the culture of obsession and dependency. The images are viewed like a private journal made public. Her Ballards of Sexual Dependency depicts drug use, violent, aggressive couples and autobiographical moments. Most of her Ballad subjects were dead by the 1990s, lost either to drug overdose or AIDS. The first picture above is Kate Moss yeeeearrrs ago.
Goldin's work is most often presented in the form of a slideshow, and has been shown at film festivals. Most famous is a 45 minute show in which 800 pictures are displayed. The images are viewed like a private journal made public.
The evening which also has Patrick Wolf and John Kelly will be absolutely wicked. It's £20, and I have £7 until the end of the month so I won't be going : (
