Questions of identity

WeatherGirl was particularly keen to return to the V&A because she wanted to see their temporary exhibit Out of the ordinary: Spectacular craft. There was some very cool work there a number of different (and very diverse) artists, all of whom share a certain obsessive quality and intense level of detail. (It reminded us a lot of Jess Larson's cool work, especially her wonderful girdles.)


I took quite a few photos of the artworks, but (much to my surprise) this may be my favorite. Naomi Filmer focuses on the human body, but taking unusual views or using unusual techniques. This is from a lenticular image where you see this face in different ways as you move around it; I really like the superposition of these two angles.
