The Town was Paper

Multimedia by KBovey

My artwork is based upon the novel Paper Towns by John Green and represents the fragility of the written word and the fandoms built around them. A fandom is a kingdom or domain of fans that come together to discuss and empathise with the characters in a novel or film.

Viewers are invited to interact with the sculpture by moving the buildings and houses and also use the template provided to construct their own paper building to add to the town, therefore participating in the expansion and evolution of fandoms as a whole.

“The town was paper but the memories were not.” – John Green

I would like to thank the authors for their amazing books that have inspired this work, in no particular order: cassandraclare, fishingboatproceeds, theartofnotwriting, Suzzane Collins and JK Rowling.

Apple, U2 and looking a gift horse in the mouth


But the inordinate amount of actual anger directed at Apple and U2 over this is so disproportional to the actual event, I’ve started to wonder about the mental state of some of those complaining. It’s really been off the charts.

If you fall into that camp, let me speak very plainly: I have no sympathy for you. I have trouble thinking of a more self-indulgent, “first world problem” than saying “I hate this free new album I’ve been given.”

Klaus Nomi

Something very bizarre is happening in my life right now. Klaus Nomi keeps coming up! First, I read a blog that linked to a clip of David Bowie’s 1979 SNL performance in which Klaus Nomi was one of the backup singers. Second, I watched a 2006 episode of Venture Bros. in which a shapeshifter appears as David Bowie, and one of his henchmen is Klaus Nomi! And now, this randomly appears in my feed.

Haters gonna hate: “To be totally honest, it looks like it was designed by a student in their first trimester.”

"Jean-Claude Biver, head of LVMH’s luxury watch division (Tag Heuer, Zenith Hublot, etc), talking about the Apple Watch.”

This man is the head of a company that makes products that no human being on the planet actually needs. Who gives a shit what he has to say?
