Claudette fell over tonight and broke my favorite lamp. She’d been standing on top of the heater for so long that I thought nothing of it when the cats started sitting at her feet – Lola likes the warmth; Kip just likes to perch. I should mention that Claudette is a mannequin. She came from FIT. That lamp used to be my father’s and I have always loved it for reminding me of simpler times. When it’s been kept on long enough the dust on the shade warms and produces this homey, attic-like must. It smells like all the times my dad and I played backgammon, watched the early seasons of Buffy, and fell asleep to Deep Space Nine. I can remember the smell of his red felt-tipped pen when he graded papers under that lamp. There wasn’t much of a scent, really, so maybe it’s not the smell I’m reminded of but the small stains the pens made in the blue velour fabric on the couch my mom always hated. I loved that couch. It had stripes. I can remember the smell of the cold on the window and how it mixed with the warm feeling of the lamp’s light while I sat perched on the back of the couch watching and waiting for my dad’s car to get home from work. It’s always snowing in that memory. I remember when my mom moved out and took the dining room table with her. She left the lamp and I remember wondering why. She told me once that they split the things they bought together. My mom wanted the table so my dad got the car. After she moved out there was a big empty space where the dining room table used to be that would sometimes house a Christmas tree and possibly some toys. I made have made this up but I imagine the lamp was always my father’s. He probably had it in his first apartment during his college years. He told me a story once about his roommate and her smoking habit. The story involved a cigarette and a ghost, I’m pretty sure, but that doesn’t seem at all like the kind of story my dad would tell me. The cigarette sat on a side table under the lamp. Or it did in my head, anyway. Most of the time when I’m reading or listening to a story that takes place in or involves a house I picture the last house my parents ever lived in together. If there’s a pool table in the story it’s always where the dining room table used to be but most of the time there’s just a dining room table there. These stories generally center around a family dinner more often than a pool table so I suppose this makes sense. When I was a kid I used to sit and examine the lamp’s shade. It has white, swirly squares that remind me of the inside of an abalone shell but are more fragile. The squares are joined together like a stained glass window. For as long as I can remember one of the squares has been different. It’s just a simple piece of white plastic stuck haphazardly into the shade where the abalone square should be. It never actually fit. Two sides of it bubbled out because of the way the shade curves and when I finally convinced my dad to give me his lamp the anomalous square went missing. Now there’s just an empty square-shaped space. Well, there’s an empty square-shaped space and a newly cracked square because of Claudette’s clumsy fall. Claudette was made to show off an aspiring fashion designer’s newest creations so her proportions are puzzling and her limbs are oddly frail, much like a model’s in real life, and her stance is a constant twisted slouch. She was never particularly stable on the heater. I think it was the heels she never, ever took off. I’m looking at the emptiness of the wall she used to lean against. It begs to be filled but I hesitate to let Claudette back up there. Really, she’s not stable. It’s those heels.
Techno-colour Setup
Techno-colour Setup
Unfortunately, this setup shot doesnt show very well how this was done. Hopefully these notes will help. The main colour is coming from an A2 sized sheet of green card used as the backdrop. In addition, 4 sheets of A4 sized coloured paper are used. Easily visable are a sheet of red and one of orange, mounted up high on the background. Far from obvious, are 2 sheets of blue, which are leaning up against the Pringles tube reflectors to the sides. These have been laminated, one a pale blue, the other a darker shade, but because of the light reflecting from behind, they dont show as blue, just a hint from the one on the right. There are 3 lights used here. All 20W CFL lamps mounted in Pringles tube reflectors. the 2 to the sides are visable, but the third is located behind the base shining up at the backdrop and cant be seen. The base below the glass crystal, is the same baking tray as I have been using for the water shots, but turned upside down, as the sides got in the way of the lights for this setup. Hopefully that all makes some sense.
