SUPAHCUTE SCIENCE FAIR

This weekend is the Supachute Science Fair! I was a little apprehensive about doing this show but I have to say I am really glad I did it. Probably the most fun pieces I have done so far.



The show will be at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland (see below for address and time). She does have a show preview so be sure to sign up for that, and any inquiries regarding availability can be sent to hello@leannalinswonderland.com. I will be in attendance and look forward to seeing every ones work.

Leanna Lin's Wonderland
5024 Eagle Rock Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90041

OPENING EVENT: Saturday, March 8 with reception from 6-10pm. The show will run through April 27, 2014.



My contribution to the show was the study of a small family of monsters called The Dwellers. I found them in a small corner in my backyard. After spending some time with them I asked if I could study them for a month under controlled conditions and these were my findings.






“The Dwellers” Family of Monsters


SUBJECT #1: The Nervous One The Pooper
OBSERVATIONS: After a month of
observation I found him very anxious and had to 
keep my eye on him because at the slightest 
provocation he would poop.


SUBJECT #2: The Licker
OBSERVATIONS: Immediately, I found that he would 
lick EVERYTHING. The rock, the grass, the glass, and
even my hand as I fed him.


SUBJECT #3: The Happy One
OBSERVATIONS: From day one and all month long he 
never stopped smiling. And he always waved. It was 
sweet at first but quickly became unnerving.


SUBJECT #4: The Crabby One
OBSERVATIONS: He ended up being the most 
entertaining subjects. He would pace, have full arguments 
with himself. And at one point he even got into a fist fight
with himself. He won many staring contests.


SUBJECT #5: The Weirdo The Hairy Guy
OBSERVATIONS: This guy was hairless when I found 
him with the others. He also has horns but they seemed 
to be a family unit so I made him part of the study as 
well. By the time I checked on him the second day his 
hair quickly began to grow and has taken on a life of its 
own. He mostly watched the me interact with the others
growling occasionally.
