It's finally happened

I've actually gone and done something. I mean created something. Done as in: done more than just push a button whilst looking through a lense at something. Actually created the object I then took a photo of.

So, what have I done? Here's a little intro:
about three weeks ago I bought little stamps used for stamping your name on christmas cookies and I tried to use them in the process of developing photos. Didn't quite turn out the way I wanted to and so yesterday I had some time on my hands and I sat down and trie to come up with something. I had these little stamps, small blocks of wood and some black tape.

The trouble with letters on stamps is, that you must put them together to say something. And for that you should have something to say. Which I don't. And ever since Macht und Rebel you can't even write "Heil Hitler" or "Sieg Heil" or "Fuck little girls" if you want to shock. In fact, all you can do after Macht und Rebel is shut up and get on with your life.

So, to recap, you need something to say. But what do you do, if all you have to say is "We all hate Leeds Scum", "el-aye-vee-ee-ahr-pee-double-oh-el-liverpool-fc" or "stayed on the telly, you should have stayed on the telly"? I guess in that case you have no other choice.

So this is basically objets-trouvés found in our flat with objets-trouvés found in my head, combined with my fascination of household items and households in general (wait until I finally get round to doing my "Household Attack").

And here we go:

The preparations:


and for a close up, which looks cool just by itself:


And now the finished products:
