surrealist wednesday

My spam's a bit strange this morning. Is there a new virus on the rounds? And what am I to make of someone offering "clear out your pamela debt, no loan needed"?

Meanwhile, artists continue to do strange things: Kelly Heaton is adopting different personas to interact with Elmo: The Trapper collects Elmos through eBay; The Industrialist performs the skinning; and The Taxidermist stuffs and mounts their heads. The Alchemist solders the electronic viscera and seeks clues to the mystery of life. Other characters, The Sociopath, The Debutante, and The Fashionista, interact with the coat and its accessories at various stages in The Surrogate’s development. Much more here including an astounding Elmo merkin. Tip of the mouse to Pete for pointing me there.

To do list

That certainly is a spectacular merkin.

The sculpture molestation page made me think of a big bronze head of someone in the Christchurch Museum at home. It has a very large nose and people seem to unconsciously rub it when passing. The nose bit is very shiny relative to the rest.

I can't find a picture, but...
"In the afternoon I visit the Canterbury Museum, where I compare my nose with that on the bust of South Pole conqueror Roald Amundsen (his is bigger). Woody has told me that it’s good luck to rub the nose. I’m not quite sure if Woody is pulling my leg, but just to be on the safe side, out of sight of the security guard, I give the nose a quick stroke."

To be honest I didn't notice the Merkin when I blogged this, so thanks for the heads up. I guess it was all those dead Elmo eyes...
