Killer Clock, #64/100


#64/100

Last Spring Tod and I were walking the tracks and one of us, I believe Tod, picked this can up. It is a Wasp and Hornet Killer Spray can, all mangled and rusty. It's been stitting on the shelf, waiting patiently for its moment. I cut a found grid for the background, it as close to conceptual as I get right now as it represents an actual hive. This has been a bitch to photograph ~ the odd aquamarine blue/green color still isn't coming out quite to my satisfaction but hey, your computer monitor is probably set completely different than mine anyway.

Awesome use of pest-repellent vessel. You said it best. It's a killer!

Come on over and read through my long meme post. Your award is waiting for you at the end.

I've said it before but it's worth saying again: I fucking love your clocks. If only I could afford to ship one over the Atlantic and... um... had somewhere to put it, I'd have one or two. Maybe three.

One day, one day when I'm rich and famous and own a mansion...

P.S. I hope you understand you don't have to do the meme to put the award on your site, if you want to that is. And yes, I will be putting up my Arte y Pico award. I'm most proud of it.

san, glad ur proud of that award (personally its the ugliest award I've seen yet but I loved the people who gave it to me) the one you gave me is much better looking :)

I think that it's a very conceptual clock.

Yeah, this clock is brilliant. It's got a lot of layers: the overall trash aesthetic, a kind of don't-pollute vibe, and then that fun ironic "Kill! Kill! Kill!" text. Love it.

Wow.

StellaD said...

Your creativity is awesome! And what a statement this clock makes. How do you come up with this stuff? No, no, don't tell me...let me bask in the mystery. I second Steve's thoughts...I'm gonna own one of your clocks one day! I think one would look so cool next to my (flat, you say?) paintings. You go, girl!
