As the official tape lady around hackney, last weekend i took it upon myself to orchestrate a photoshoot featuring a roll of yellow fabric tape, and a friend gary who kindly volunteered himself as model... also bringing along the necessary costume items from his own wardrobe.
The shoot (aka fairly crappy photos taken on a digital camera which has been bashed around a few too many times) will be featured in a new magazine coming out called 2010.
Our (my and wai's) entry is about fairly mundane things one could do with a roll of tape in everyday life. Some such situations featured in our 'shoot' (which we possibly found alot funnier than anyone else will) include this one which is a wardrobe/coathanger replacement.
We went slightly overboard and attempted to feature the whole wardrobe taped to my wall. (these photos sadly did not make the final cut that is why i am posting them here now)
I will do another post of the final layout once its published in a few weeks.
I also am in the process of making a you tube video which includes outtakes from the day, one of which includes gary posting 'lost cat' signs around my local neighbourhood and my brother seeing it and thinking that my lovely cat darwin (who is also a key character in the 'story') was actually lost. I was glad to know that upon thinking this terrible thing happened, he decided not to call me, but to post his distress on my facebook wall. I fear FB is taking over my life.
so stay tuned...
