Alice in process…

Instead of the question “Who is Alice?” there are now paths leading to what Alice might come to be…

Laurie Simmons dreamland

All images by Laurie Simmons


I actually just found one picture of Laurie Simmons directly inspired by Alice. Anyway I wanted to show a bit of her work influenced by a surprising and magical universe of childhood, subverting the logic and the size of our world and welcoming the dream and displacements.

Laurie Simmons balet:

"Porcelain dolls, miniature houses, ballet slippers, sharply-lit stage against mysterious darkness, an abyss into one's mind (or of one's mind?), glistening snowflakes and iridescent rose petals, swooning whirls of tutus, Alice's beautiful skirts and her Wonderland, a dream within a dream, an invitation to a dance - eerie yet bizarrely irresistible, that dulcet and melodious danger."

"Laurie Simmons has continued to produce fantastic photographic works using toys, ventriloquist's dummies, and everyday objects. Before moving to New York City, where she began to see the limitless potential of photograhy, Simmons had started collecting toys and dollhouse accessories, which inspired her to begin photographing them in domestic scenarios. Although her content changes, she continues to create imaginative environments through the heightened sense of space, color and light. Her photographs come as a series, and when a series ends, the next one follows in the style of a narrative. Magnum Opus II (the Bye-Bye) is the final installment of her "Walking Objects" series. A stage set with a handbag, a gun, and a globe, all with disembodied doll legs, is inspired by nostalgia for her childhood." (HH)
