BRIDAL Face Decoration

BRIDES from the Trebesh community of Kosovo (about which there is mysteriously little information online) paint and decorate their faces on the day they get married. SUBLIME!

(The music in the video, by the way, is "Nusja Jonë" by the Kosovo-Bosnian jazz group the Marimanga Trio.)

ROSE SKINNER - Installations

Rose Skinner, an Australian installation artist, creates vibrantly hued visual cacophonies of amalgamated objects which creates a delightful, if not jarring visual experience.
Her installation of I Wish I Were in Wonderland is an example of my childhood fantasy playroom on acid.
