Positive and Negative Space

I've always been obsessed about shadows, silhouettes, figures --- the positive and negative spaces of images, the black and the white, the opposites. You get the drift. Even when I was a child I put on a stellar shadow puppet play for my fourth grade class that was the envy of every student. Something about Giovanna Battaglia's AMFAR Stephen Sprouse dress fascinates me. Everything is defying gravity in this outfit. The dress is essentially a skirt suspended across one shoulder --- how it does not fall off her shoulder, I'll never know. Add to that the strategically places black bra cups over the two most important areas of a woman which the dress/skirt neglects to conceal. The creativity in Giovanna's experimentation with the exposee makes this outfit so modern. And sexy sexy sexy.

Graffiti on My Street

Perhaps inspired by the documentary Gasland. Or is it a commentary on the irony of mountain spring water in plastic bottles too congested for our environment?
