REALISM 1/3

(First off, that rash between my eyebrows is from some earlier shots I was trying out, which didn't work. I've had the swimming cap on. I've had swimming goggles on. I've had an opaque plastic box on my head, but none of it was working.)

and second of all, yes there's a complex background today. I thought I'd try out a 3 day tour of different locations round my flat. Today we're in the bedroom.

I've had this massive map of the world on one wall or another in my home for some years now. It is in 6 parts and i've always opted to present it in a non-traditional, non-propagandist arrangement.

In mine Russia and America are virtually touching, just as they are around the globe in 3D reality, and in preference to their official mythologised positioning on opposing sides.

the map can also be seen in these 2 webcomic strips from 2005

THE INSURGENT 1 and THE INSURGENT 2

plus always worth a visit ........

Hey russell, i think i can see uzebekidelphia from here. Nice to see the globe the right way up for a change with oztralia where it should be. This is how all the maps look over here. I am really liking this new series russell. can't wait for the rest of the tour.
russell higgs: all going well, saturday we'll be in my toilet. its the first room i ever decorated when i moved in and the only space never to have been redecorated.
