MY KIND OF BIZARRE

As I crawl the Virtual Dumpster I call the Internet...

I wanted to do an unusual art media link/bio again. So I imagined an unusual media...safety pins.
Again, Googled it "safety pin art" and found About 1,700,000 results (0.18 seconds)

Making Friends Website
South African Safety Pin Bracelet


Here is a DIY project using colored safety pins and pony beads. In my 30's I developed a sensitivity to common metal. I found out via my earrings and this bitching serpentine watch I had. It would burn into me like acid. I only can wear sterling. Probably gold, but disliking gold is one of my counterculture peculiarities.
This felt even before the "Bling-Bling"phenomena.




But you can imagine the above is NOT my kind of bizarre I was searching for.
Here I found it!


Federico Uribe...yes he has the safety pin je ne sais quoi! This artist would be a curious kind of guy in any home, store or office (anyplace he goes)...possibly picking up any item you have and making cool and con-temporarily significant art from it! He has a whole series of unusual media torsos. You need to go to his website to see the slide show. It is in flash format and although many of his stuff is scattered on the Internet, I believe the idea here is to go see it's mass at Federico Uribe website You will see he uses a lot of different stuff to make beautiful art! He did a lady out of pennies..that is one heck of a piggy bank format! This last link on him goes right to his works and it is listed by pictured media. It is awesome.
