We’ve spent the last eight weeks designing and building a sculpture project called The Head Table. It will be unveiled on the runway of STRUTT, the annual wearable art show extravaganza in St. Catharines, Ontario in two weeks.

I can’t recommend STRUTT enough. I’d put it up against anything you’ve seen at heavy-hitting cultural events such as Luminato, Nuit Blanche or even Burning Man. The factory setting, the actors who bring the wearable art to life, and the incredible music (this year, live Acadian hip-hop from Radio Radio!) all make it an amazing evening. But I know not everyone can make the show, and I’d like you to see what we’ve been knocking ourselves out working on.

We’re opening the front room of the studio this Friday to show off the work before we wrap it and load it in a cargo van. Drop by after school (kids are welcome) or after work and check it out.

As a bonus, Christine’s hilarious and/or disturbing textile project 28 Clowns Later will be on display too.

Canal monsters’ glamour shots

Just before the actors hit the STRUTT runway, they are captured in full wearable art glory by photographer Brian Yungblut. Brian provides invaluable record of thousands of hours of work that shine for only a few minutes on show night. Below are photos of Swizzle Studio’s project, It Came from the Welland Canal.
