The Dark Angels are a come and go crew. They create then disappear like street art. Their works exist in fragments, particles that float, dust motes that spin before the wind that blows them to faraway places. They are individuals that work as one. Deep as oceans, as impenetrable as the night. Art urchins and poets, they dissolve before they form. They are the Dark Angels, they are discharge. They are a bloody mouthful.

Aaron Held said...

This is awesome TicTac! I like making stuff with card board. Could you explain the meaning behind the white paper in the middle? :)

Russell 'C.J.' Duffy said...

JSB would be impressed and even if he wasn't I sure am. Art and sculpture and music combined.As Aaron says "awesome."

I don't know enough about music to get the Toccata and Fugue part, but I love the package.

TICTAC said...

thanks Cristina, glad it "sounds" good! :-)

Aaron, it's all very conceptual including the white paper...writing music has rules and specific shaped notes, i used the conceptuality of it to deconstruct and re-construct "music" as visual art this is music for book.book as musical instrument.
hope this explanation somehow makes sense...:-))

CJ, i would greatly fear his sense of humour..lol!

A.Decker,it's about how music makes me feel, i just tried to depict it. i'm not a musical person. from what i know toccata and fugue has to do with fast moving, light fingered passages for two or more voices...
the parallel lies in the choice of materials and the sense of lightness and transparencies the cardboard and acetate give...with irony of course.


Many thanks to all!! :-)

Sounds interesting, my brother knows music not like me who just twists and deforms it with out any knowledge of music theory, but he writes music using visual colors he sees in his head, and rarely writes notes down, that's what I thought of when I first seen it, like if he was to write those visual images he was seeing down on paper, that's what it would look like. Very creative.
