Say... Where are all these flowers coming from? Have you kidnapped a florist or are you trawling the cemeteries by night?
russell higgs: they make me think of Alan Moore's telling of the saga of the Swamp Thing. I loved it when he flowered.

Creative but techniqly not good!
russell higgs: i guess my priority with this project has me focused on it as a daily experience and the repetetive ordinariness of it etc etc.

in many ways this project is more akin to cleaning my teeth than photography

but i'd say that photographically (and conceptually) this project is in a spectrum similar to photo-booth proof-of-identity pictures, passports and family snap shots etc etc
TECHNICALLY not good? What's technique got to do with Russell's marvellous collection- they're witty, fresh, imaginative, and reflective.

Hi Russell. This has got to be just about my favourite of your images so far.
What was that contraption on your head...some sort of kinky underwear?

Thought...The Shutterchance folks should declare you to be "Installation Artist in Residence", waive the Annual fee, reinstate the whole damn collection!
russell higgs: i was thinking about those underpants on my head......

i've owned them for about 17 years. But i've mostly not worn any underpants during that time so this pair have probably actually been worn about ten times or something (including on my head).

i wonder if the company who made them still exists. can't remember their name. they made men's underwear that used fabric and styles that are most often associated with women's underwear.
