I was lying down on my couch in the studio staring up at my board and thinking: hey, this would make a great game of i spy. So do you want to play? I spy…
…a feminine man, a nation’s flag, vincent van gogh, a diplomat and his daughter
…maradona, an eaten wall, a palestinian dress, an august disk, a pair of eyes, a running horse, a yellow star, a red square, pages from a diary
…an origami crane, a paper bag head, a giant ten dollar bill, some googly eyes, a cheetah, a green girl
…an aztec vase, an artist and her mother, some cutouts from clouds, some masks made on a mask-making night, a dolphin, a birthday drawing, the mirzam manifesto, a dead leaf
I spy with my little eye a set of jail keys, a sportive cock, some metallic rings and upside down v’s, a pink flower, some headers from a bygone blog, an invitation to birds, two supine women, a flying trapezist
the “feminine man” is my favorite.
I spy with my little eye, something beginning with….. I
the leaf? i know it’s not going to be easy. it can’t be the leaf…
It’s an ‘i’, not an ‘l’. Dumbass :-)
This was fun!
did you find all the items on the list? :)
Still looking for sportive cock (as in animal, pistol or unmentionable other?), August disk (huh, wasthat?), Artist and her mother (faces are blurred, but I think I see artist and her daughter rather than mother, and have no idea where the mirzam manifesto is. Still looking.
sportive cock (think french, and not in an unmentionable way). a cd with august written on it. have you considered that maybe the artist is z ;)? the mirzam manifesto. i wouldn’t expect you to know that. it’s a leaflet from this exhibition by two kuwaiti artists jointly called the mirzam manifesto. i saw their work at the 4 gallery in rai (or is it shuwaikh?). look for a portrait of a lady with a greyhound’s head. there. i think i gave you enough hints.
OK, I got mother and artist ( I love you z), got greyhound manifesto (actually they did well advertising this event because even I, who gets nowhere, knew about them and their exhbition at 4 but I’m more familiar with their logo and calligraphy images), still can’t see any kind of cock (french, mentionable or otherwise) found a tag label with the word ‘august’ on it but not a cd and not in the same picture (first picture on the left hand side).
erm, and what about palestinian dress?
just found your blog.. really nice.. :)
thank you, chen :)
oh, m, m, m. le coq sportif, on maradona’s shirt. and there is a CD with the word august written in cursive on it. and there is an invitation with a palestinian dress on it….sharpen your eyes, love :)
oh. i can’t find the palestinian dress either…
ok. there’s a whole frikkin’ photo missing!
