Spent the whole day at SRL sorting through image files for a media outlet that wants hi-res images of four machines to make drawings of the machines — which meant I spent hours and hours going through image files of 25 years of shows, few labeled. It was nice to spend the day on Mark’s computer and hang out in the office; the guys (and a few girls) would escape the heavy machinery periodically and come in and visit and bring me snacks and gossip and make jokes, very fun.
I found some pretty mind-blowing images, completely by accident. I clicked a file and opened graphic pictures of Mark’s hand surgery (warning, link goes to a bloody image). Outrageous images of flaming mayhem and machine operators running machines while laying on the ground under the smoke and fire (even a few of me like that). But what really captivated me was finding the above image of the first SRL machine ever made for Mark’s first show, Machine Sex.
And guess what? We have the machine, and it still works.
I had a few minutes between waiting for files to upload and send, so I took pics of Mark’s office around me while I occupied his massive office chair and drank iced soy coffee. Today’s pics start here; in case you’re new here, I’m photoblogging the whole show and the album starts here, complete with a diary of my experiences and picture captions. You can buy tickets for our August 11 San Jose show here.
