Where did this image come from?
Snowglobes is an image generated during a performance installation at Lynch Tham last September. The piece, Interior Shampoo, was commissioned by the gallery as part of a retrospective of work by Guglielmo Achille Cavellini (1914 – 1990). For Interior Shampoo, Kristof and RoseNSeitz set into motion a virtual Rube Goldberg machine with the purpose of creating a beautiful pastoral still life. Performance components included: airbrush artist, dancers, fog, snow machine, ladder, photo back drop, lights, faux fur, wiggle board, fruits, lipstick, a lock of Cavellini’s hair, and pour-on latex rubber.
What are you working on next?
We are currently working on a pop-up, how-to manual on survival guides. And, we are looking for a venue to stage Interior Shampoo 2: Armor All.
