This is real old photograph from Life Magazine by John Olson and I find that it has a striking resemblance to the contemporary photography of Kalle Gustafsson.

Elizabeth Peyton
Not only is she an amazing artist, she shares my admiration for David Bowie!

Today someone asked me "Why are you so quiet? You hardly said a word throughout the conversation." Now what on earth do you reply to this? "um... I have nothing to say..."
I thought of the real answer: It is because my psychological role in this particular social group, and in order to sustain the group dynamics, is to be the observer.
(I had to research that by the way)

"...mythological texts spanning many centuries and many cultures (from ancient India to Hollywood) have imagined what the consequences would be if those who wished for a new face were to get what they wished for...And the myths, at least, demonstrates that this is foolish, impossible, or even fatal desire." - Wendy Doniger

see the rest of the shoot at:

In art we were given an art project on a social / political issue.
This is such a cliched theme but I decided to go very subtle and choose a social issue that I can identify with - Angst.
This seems to be a very insignificant issue compared to rape, abortion etc etc but for the people who experience it know how significant it really is.

Anxiety: a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome

Angst can also be linked with existentialism: the term was first attributed to Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard used the word Angst to describe a profound and deep-seated condition of insecurity and fear
in the free human being. Where the animal is a slave to its instincts but always conscious in its own actions. [wikipedia]
Stefan Sagmeister has been variously described as a genius, maniac, tactician and exhibitionist.

This is such a beautiful photograph! It's my screensaver now.
My first entry on my Blog.
Let me explain the name 'Scandinavian Electro'. There is actually no logical reason for it because i'm South African and not a musician. Basically it's just a culture that I would like to be part of.
Some awesome music from this 'culture' is:
The knife


The Tough Alliance
