"But shall you on your knowledge find this way."

Art is the only serious thing in the world. And the artist is the only person who is never serious.


I'm a theatre nerd. I just started school for my MFA in scenic (and hopefully costume) design. So this is my professional blog. Or more of a blog with my profession on it. Where I am, what I'm doing, what shows I'm working on, inspiration and the amazing people I meet. I'm sure you'll see some of my work on here too. I feel it will be a fairly exciting ride. What I often say, this is my real life as opposed to what goes on in my head.

As Prudencia’s song gathers force smoke comes from her mouth, her eyes turn red, blood drips from the end of her fingers.

Prudencia sings the story to its end.

I love David Greig so much.

Behold the awesomeness that is Long Ma the fire-breathing dragon-horse, the latest creation by French artist François Delarozière and his art production company La Machine. The 46-ton kinetic sculpture stands almost 40 feet tall and features articulated limbs that can gallop, rear up, and fold beneath him when he wants to sit down. His neck rises and falls and his wonderfully expressive face features eyes that open and close. Best of all, his chest swells from the pressure building in his lungs before he exhales fantastic plumes of smoke from his nostrils and jets of fire from his mouth.

This marvelous interactive sculpture was just debuted in the French city of Nantes and will soon be traveling to Beijing where he’ll be presented in October as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China. Long Ma is based on a creature from Chinese mythology, Longma, a fabled winged horse with dragon scales, and will be the hero of a performance entitled “Long Ma Jing Shen” or “The Spirit of the Horse Dragon” during which he’ll face off against a giant spider.

Click here and here for video footage of Long Ma in all his fiery glory.

Visit the La Machine Facebook page for additional images.

I went to Nante a few years ago and bought a collection of the prints of some of the machines. They are truly spectacular.
