These are some of my favourite images from install that the lovely Lauren Mahoney took. It was the first time I had felt stressed out about my exhibition - turning up to the gallery in the rain with a car load of giant tampons and no clear idea of how to start, but with a group of helpers as awesome as these guys there was no way we were leaving the gallery without every last tampon hung.
These images are 6 out of 814 that will be made into a stop motion video, I swear about 300 of them are simply of hanging the monstrous two metre long tampon! Lauren was the best person I could have asked to do this for me, she was as fearless in her artistic vision as I had hoped, Thanks Loz!

I have so many great photos to post from last weekend I haven't really known where to begin. Blast Off was probably the best night of my life.. I was perpetually overwhelmed by how happy I was with the way the tampons were hanging, how awesome my friends who helped me install were, how many awesome people came to the opening, how fantastically appropriate the cake my dear friend Rhea made for the occasion was and how happy I was that 3 of my besties from uni were able to share the experience with me. What a night!!
These are some of my favourite pics of the show that I've taken on my 'new' (straight out of the 90s) camera - a Kodak point and shoot that uses film. Without knowing if it worked or not after buying it last weekend at Savers for $5, I went ahead and shot 3 films and they've all come out really well.. more images to come..
