Strange Project


The professor was obsessed with the series of murders in Ciudad Juarez, across the river from El Paso. She's made many trips there, even taken her teenage daughters. The professor is very pretty and has slight fangs on the sides of her smile. She took digital photos wildly, and we worried we'd end up in her project.

She's making a book about the murders, recreating them in little tableaus. The dolls are made of felt shaped with needles. She's used some of her own family as models.



One murder has her interest particularly. She thinks she knows who did it. (the boyfriend.) She's made friends with the victim's family and visited often.






and the weirdest thing she said, and she really did say this, no, wait- I'll save for another post.

Whoa...!
And then what did she say...?

I like the tableaux pic the best- the look on her face as she's mutilating the dolls!

Attack of the Puppet People meets Dracula's Brides. Where does this story come from? Courtney Cox could play the Professor. Bob Denver could play Gilligan and I will play with Ginger and Mary Ann since nobody else seems to want to.

Wow. With each post about this conference, I'm more and more upset that I wasn't able to attend!

Courtney Cox with fangs nails it.

"Courtney Cox with fangs"...wonderful! You've got it, Sally. And that's appropriate, since she and her work were alluring in a frantic (and scary) way. I was there, and I have to tell you, the talk was "invigorating." It definitely kept you on your toes.
