must see…Scoppio del Carro, Easter Sunday in Florence, a MECHANICAL DOVE fired from the alter in Duomo out into the piazza to set off firework, coloured smoke, catherine wheels on a giant elaborate cart. Catholicism at its best!

Fresh from the oven! ….Taranta
A giant transformable pneumatic structure for the annual Tarantella festival in Italy. The 130m deep pneumatic surface is supported on six movable structural arms. These arms are adapted from airplane boarding bridges found in airports; and pivot irrigators used in large scale farms. These bridges and irrigators release a cloud of psychedelic light and foam to the entranced dancers, music bands and spectators below.  The arms and pneumatic retract back into the “spine” which also act as a place to meet for the Tarantella women during winter.
It glows a bright neon yellow at night…

About:

Somewhere along the way, I stumbled upon a half opened book, an odd drawing in the corner of a room, video of strange machines, maps of monstrous gardens, an old man stringing a cord next to a waterfall. There may not always be someone standing next to me to share with as I stumble upon these things, so I put them up here for you.

These Things from Somewhere, one by one, swimming in my head, create the Book of Elsewhere
