jams' window display 2

I just wanted to post some photos of Jamiyla working on her display over the last couple of months...

If you want to see the display in person, its at Magic Pony (694 Queen west), and you can see more of Jamiyla's work here: www.jamiyla.blogspot.com. Her prints are for sale at Magic Pony as well now...

I think it turned out really great! Anyone who knows me knows I haven't been able to shut up about it all month...

Here is her initial screenprint that she based the installation off of...
And photos of the process:






This was around the time of Jamiyla's birthday... That night a bunch of us went to the park and drank too much... I put an opened bottle of Gatorade in my backpack (which contained my camera, ipod, and sketchbook), and didn't notice until we were leaving and saw my bag sitting in a giant yellow puddle... The next day my camera only took pictures that looked like this:






I took it apart, cleaned it, and it sort of works, but everything is pinkish... It sort of drives me crazy, that's why the rest of the photos look weird and shitty...



These are from last night... Jams, her roommate Stephen, and I were setting up...



I just borrowed Andrew's camera and took some photo's of the final product...



Ok, thats it, I swear I'll stop talking about it now!

dude. i love the funked up photos your camera takes.
it makes your work speak my language.

seriously, i love the vintage polaroid look your camera takes after the cleaning. You should post a tutorial.
Or make a how to video for torontofreebroadcasting.net

or sell me the camera.
