    A is for Aggregation: antlers

     Aggregation rules.
         I can be moved by minimalism but I can’t live with it. I am attracted to aggregations of things. I am smited with smittenness by the alchemical magic that happens when like things are grouped together, or unlike things. And maybe partly because I’m Canadian — we are, after all, a society that features a caribou in fully horned glory on our 25-cent coin — there are few things that yum me up more than antlers. And really, can you blame me? I mean . . . look!

    “trophy” with allllll the antlers made me snort a little – i would’ve snorted more, but my tonsils hurt too much. for that, i’d almost consider nailing a carcass to my wall.

    and also, I WANT TO WEAR THAT DRESS.

    I’ve had antlers and horns on my mind the past few weeks. I needed a pair and finally decided on a pair of springbok horns. interesting coincidence. “needed” makes me sound like a weirdo. but really, I did.

    the cute little white and pink baby deer toy makes me want to talk in a high pitched voice.

    rache, there’s a nice series of photos of the making of Trophy on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/exitcreative/3305522816/in/photostream/

    artistamuerta, I share your need for antlers and indeed have a deer skull replete with antlers displayed rather prominently on a shelf in my house.
