The Swallowing Plates

Lisa Wood (the real artist in the family) has an exhibit of her photo based art at Gold Bug, 4/25-5/25 in Pasadena, CA. This is not the kind of stuff I'd usually post here- but hey, she's the wife! And her stuff is pretty cool- imaginative combinations of vintage tin types along with various period artifacts that are combined into oddly beautiful presentations. The photo above depicts one of over thirty pieces of semi-fictional accounts of Victorian era tales of swallowed foreign objects retrieved from the human body by the illustrious Chevalier Jackson, laryngologist extraordinaire. If you're in the vicinity, make sure to check it out and say hello- she's a lot friendlier than I am, and her website is well worth a visit (even though still under construction).
