Eerie Mirrored Sculptures by Rob Mulholland Scottish sculptor Rob Mulholland creates these eerie mirrored sculptures out of Perspex, a kind of acrylic glass. The pieces create the uncanny effect of blending into their surroundings, at times appearing almost completely camouflaged and yet jumping out at you suddenly as your perspective shifts around them. Mulholland’s largest installation of six figures, Vestige, is currently installed at David Marshall Lodge in Scotland. The artist, via his website: The essence of who we are as individuals in relationship to others and our given environment forms a strong aspect of my artistic practise.

#Pose-Emporium on deviantART Los resonadores de la voz según Grotowski « ARTES ESCÉNICAS Los resonadores de la voz según Grotowski La función de los resonadores es amplificar la conducción de la voz emitida. Comprimen la columna de aire en una parte del cuerpo determinada para amplificar la voz. Subjetivamente se tiene la impresión de estar hablando con esa parte del cuerpo. Hay un número ilimitado de resonadores que dependen del control que el actor tenga sobre su cuerpo. Estos son algunos de los resonadores posibles: Parte superior de la cabeza, el más empleado en el teatro occidental. Realmente, Grotowski considera que la posibilidad más creativa y completa es cuando el actor utiliza todo su cuerpo como un resonador, que se consigue cuando un actor puede utilizar a la vez los resonadores altos de la cabeza y el pectoral. Ejercicios orgánicos para la colocación de la voz El objetivo de estos ejercicios es conseguir que el actor se vuelva consciente de su voz y que explore todas las posibilidades mientras lleva a cabo su papel de modo espontáneo y casi inconscientemente.

burn magazine Rooster Oven Mitt | Significant Objects Object No. 94 of 100 [The auction for this Significant Object, with story by Victor LaValle, has ended. Original price: $1. Final price: $51.99.] Who the hell goes to Portugal? In my family? The question arose as my sister and I were going through my grandmother’s things—her effects. The old lady didn’t own the apartment she’d lived in, alone, for 22 years. Let’s be blunt: the mitt’s not pretty. Then, I brought the thing home and forgot about it! My friend slides the glove on, reaches into the oven, but as she’s pulling the tray she loses her grip and the squash goes to the ground. But she wore another expression. Not writing. And it went on like that. A lot. Turns outs my grandmother was kind of a slut! My friend and I poured wine.
