boucherouite rag rugs from Morocco

I saw an amazing collection/set up by the Gebhart Blazek gallery at The Tribal & Textile Arts Fair in SF over the weekend — so impressive, so colorful, very inspiring. I want to learn how to make them myself, or my version of them.

I also found that I was very drawn to lots of masks thru the show, discovering most were from the Congo. I was especially drawn to masks from the Mbuti pygmy tribes from the Ituri Rainforest. Raffia beards and hair made the masks seem larger than life, I could imagine how impressive they would be worn on the people who made them.

Over at Dave DeRoche  and Jo De Buck’s stall I found some interesting masks and heard a lot of stories about the Kifwebe and their secret society/governance.

Kifwebe mask:

Every part of the face is meant to associate with certain animals — of which the mask assumes their special characteristics.

I still have so much to learn, but am excited to be interested in some new subjects. I have created a lot of different masks and costumes over the years, and what I really like is using the materials at hand to create something awesome. Most of the masks I saw used natural ingredients (wood, raffia, clay) — the things at hand in the places they were from.

Inspired! Finishing up some loose ends on projects here and these things are pushing me forward to my next endeavor. So cool. Thanks, Eliza, for inviting me!

“I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, ‘Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn’t, then there’s a point to it.'” – Harry Nilsson

Found this album in a box of old records, if you have never heard it—you should. SO GOOD, and is accompanied by a comic drawn by Gary Lund. The story is narrated by Nilsson himself and the music he wrote is also excellent. A animated version of The Point was made with Ringo Starr as the narrator and is fully available on youtube for watching. AND ALSO HERE! below, easily stacked so you can watch the magic unfold yourself. One of my faves is the section (part 4) starring songwriter Bill Martin as Rock Man. Check it out:

click here for part 6 — here for part 7 — and here for part 8

Share it with your friends, friends. xo DTM

Usually I find Berkeley humorless, but this day I stood in the street and laughed heartily. This joint (no pun intended) was positively BUMPING this song as I passed, not what I expected–but what a delight. Thanks for the giggle, Big Al. Please enjoy (keep in mind it was 10:32 am):
