I finally fixed up my older dolls & listed them on etsy. This has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages now, so I’m thrilled it’s done.

My sprawling project is getting some real steam these days. The idea for it hatched in my brain in early 2010 & it has been creeping toward existence ever since.
There 5 songs that have inspired 5 environments. I am in the process of making models & inhabitants for each one. The ultimate goal is to create a stage set for each song with people-sized inhabitant costumes for dancers & performers to occupy. The performers will be inside their respective doll/puppet/inhabitant structures on stage & may be assisted by external operators. Many of the inhabitant costumes will have light & sound features independent of the theater sound & lighting.
“Identity Tokens” by Rasputina from Oh, Perilous World & Melora a la Basilica
“Pox” by Xiu Xiu from La Foret
“We Carry On” by Portishead from Third
“Reflection” by Tool from Lateralus
“House Sparrow” by Xiu Xiu from Dear God, I Hate Myself
I have nearly completed the set & main inhabitant of “Identity Tokens” & will post pictures soon.
