BO/DY

I saw a call for entry at nefarious contemporary in Baltimore on Instagram:

Our February exhibition is now open for entries! BO/DY was thought up as I and many of my beloved friends have experienced extreme body trauma and abuse in our lifetimes. The body is something we shame, we neglect, we criticize, we oh-too-closely compare to other bodies. In a time of revolution, such as the one we find ourselves in the midst of, the body is starting to receive more love than it has in a long, long time. And we want to celebrate that. This exhibition will open on St Valentine’s Day and serve as an online and zine exhibition. Which means that each applicant, regardless of their acceptance, will receive a complimentary zine once it’s published. Tag some of your favorite artists below working within themes of body to let them know they should apply! And feel free to shoot us over any q’s you may have!

This exhibition is US only due to funding restrictions.

My girlfriend and I were experimenting with cyanotypes, and I made this.

As a kid, I was always self conscious of my weird, awkward ehlers–danlos syndrome-ish body, especially my feet. Well, NO LONGER! I learned to….

Foot Prints

Probably my favorite 3D scan, I present the Sidekick! I sculpted this character, made a mold and then scanned it. I can print them in brass, silver and various plastics and in various sizes.

Three human feet with dog legs - red plastic, brass, blue plastic.
3 human feet with animal legs.

FOR SALE

I have one red prototype for sale – 2.5″ x 1″ high, with silver nails. If you’d like it, send $45 and your address (US only, please – if outside the US, please contact me jim.doran@gmail.com).

I plan to print more of these, including pairs, for the shop. If you’d like one, please email me.

Anatomy of a Crime Scene No. 7 – the Philanthropist Office. Can you solve this one?

Anatomy of a Crime Scene

I really wish someone could solve these mysteries. This time, it took place in a store for previously owned shoes.

I combined cut paper dioramas with 3D prints of my figures. Scenes from The Benefits of Radiation are shown below.
