The members of the Chernobyl Collective held another show and zine release here in Philadelphia. It opened in the PhilaMoca space and had also held a closing with live bands: Lands & Peoples, Secret Mountains, Norwegian Arms and Da Comrade! all accompanied with projections by Eye Gate II.
I did a piece titled The Big Fizz-Bang and made a small installation out of it. The theme was myths & legends. I feel that those topics manifest as a result of storytelling. With that as my focus of my intentions I chose to originally create my own take on creationism, a light-hearted spin that doesn’t really reflect my own views on the subject BUT since every faction of humanity and science have a version I thought I would make one too. Myth-rituals and historical narratives are both man-made and employ the use of symbolic representations.
With all that being said, it is a painting of Pop-rocks and Cola.
I’ll be sure to post some pics of the zine soon since I did the layout of it and happen to be quite pleased with it and the work published with it. Thanks to everyone that came out or bought a zine or both or take the time to read this blog!
