If you like the 1980s, get involved with The Paper Eaters: Long Live the Photo-Story at Selfridges Ultralounge in London, England. It's run by The Girls, aka Andrea Blood and Zoe Sinclair (a little bit of Cindy Sherman, a little bit of Pierre and Gilles, a whole lot of Japanese something or other, some collage and cut and paste and even a little bit of Myra Hindley. You can sign up to be a contributor or assistant - but loving the 80s seems to be a prerequisite and you might have to dress up and vote conservative and listen to Spandau Ballet and suchlike. More information here.
Encapsulating the punk DIY aesthetic, The Paper Eaters: Long Live the Photo-Story! makes a defiant stand against the digital world.
Artist duo The Girls (Andrea Blood and Zoë Sinclair) adopt the roles of editors-in-chief of a photo-story magazine with a difference. While the Ultralounge at Selfridges is transformed into an 80’s inspired den, where they will create three photo-story magazines. Selfridges’ staff and customers are taking part in shoots, and will be invited to contribute ideas and shape the stories as they are shot. Each issue will be compiled using traditional cut and paste techniques, and include contributions from guests from the fashion and art world.
You’re invited to relive the 80’s by interacting with the drive-in photo-story viewing booth, customised 1980’s make-overs, a dry ice dance floor – or even take a lead role in a photo-story for the magazine.
