SOUL

Tomorrow is National Day – before we get all excited about the marching army contingents, let’s be reminded that war and soldiers are bad things. In an ideal world, they should not exist since both exist for the sole purpose of bloodshed.

In the killing field, a man has to kill his inner soul to survive. Here’s a short video I did for the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge 2005, together with my buddy, Ding An:

Inside-out Teddies

Pictures taken from Foley Gallery

I love these photos of warped looking soft toys. They exude a certain tragic-happy feel that is inexplicable with written words.

These mangled creatures are actually teddy bears which have been turned inside-out by New York-based artist, Kent Rogowski.

To view the gallery in full, click HERE. My favourite teddy is HERE.

Said the press release on Rogowski’s photography exhibition:

In this body of work Rogowski presents a delicate and sensational series of teddy bear portraits. The bears appear different than ordinary stuffed animals. They have been turned inside out, re-stuffed and sewn back together, transforming them, creating entirely new creatures. The result of this enabled metamorphosis is a new kind of bear, sometimes grotesque or pathetic but often rather endearing. These new emblems no longer sustain the perfect image of childhood, but break apart this image into a complex picture of youth and development.
