So many things are coming to a head, and just can't lie low anymore. Do you think when they came up with the phrase " shoot yourself in the foot" if someone tested it out first. Moving on this is an "In Progress" pic of my mechanical piece. The piece is finished will be seen as soon as technology stops betraying me. *holds hammer over camera*.
I suppose I should explain the piece before I post the finished product so here it is and bare with me: In my concentration I said would stick to three classic games , chess, checkers (Chinese too) , and playing cards, but now I am think of adding toys. like dolls and puppets, because they fit so well with the concept of ' no control', and 'what one's role is'. To continue this I used two wind up dolls connected to each other through puppet strings. Now I know one can't see this, but each gild as the ACE letter written somewhere on their bodies and I went really loose with making these girls the Ace and the Ace of Spades. According to my sources, some suits go nice with each while some don't work so great and when multiples of a suit show up it can cause a completely different meaning , hence why this work has two main character's instead of one like I usually do. While each girl is moving on gears one can tell there's someone winding them up, yet they are trying to control each other through the strings. They pretty much getting no where, thus causing a "Stalemate".
P.S. Remember to always blame technology!
