lisa kokin's online portfolio is brilliant. her pieces are made with found materials and sewn photographs and buttons and things. and then there's the matter of her "dogumentary" entitled "heavy petting," in which she fashions several wonderful costumes for her chihuahuas and takes them out for walks and to parties and museums. i guess you probably have to be a dog person to get the maximum amount of enjoyment out of it, and particularly a dog person who has felt that compulsion at some point to dress up your dog. but i recommend that everyone watch this little film. it's plain wonderful.
thanks to bb for the link.
