Diamonds & Dead Things

leave a comment »

I recently started a collaborative project with Kelly McCallum named Diamonds & Dead Things. For more information check out our website, http://www.diamondsanddeadthings.com


Our first project ‘Surprise!’ was inspired by the Christmas spirit, a kind of Secret Santa. The plan was for each of us to find a piece of taxidermy that we wanted and to give it to the other as a raw material. Over the course of 8 weeks we transformed the pieces of taxidermy into sculptures and then sent the pieces of taxidermy back to each other.
