  14. You can vote for however many you feel like voting for ... the votes will (probably) be calculated as follows:

    Each person's vote for a work will accumulate the following points for it:
    2 * (number of entries - ranking)

    so, given 9 entires, if you like #5 the best, work #5 will receive 2*(9-1)=16 points. And if you liked #7 second best, work #7 will get 2*(9-2)=14 points. Etc. You can rank them all if you feel like it.

    (Also, #9 should be split into separate images -- although still considered one. Each one is too small -- it was intended to be seen fullscreen on a normal 800-pixel-ish high laptop :))

    #2, #4, #8, and #9. These are your winners. This, I declare! ("Trafficcorpsejam" and "Spider Tapdances on Human Teeth" were close runners up). ...at least I think those were the titles

  22. What is that thing in Jardins du Mort, what is it walking on, and how was the piece generally created/thought up?

    ReplyDelete
  23. The creature is from a sculpture from a park in Paris and it is walking on what I think is a femur, from Paris as well. The work was an older work that I have been recreating over the years. Its an amalgamation of memories. It (as an image) has never reached its peak yet, I don't think it ever will...
