FORMAL TO FERAL - a photopoem from the mid future
Welcome to the mid future! We are Pretend Sweethearts. You may know us, chances are, you don’t: time-traveling, tantric trickster twins based in Portland, Oregon. Folk music for the capitalistically-impaired and media-challenged. Formal to Feral is a collaboration with photographer Miri Stebivka, our comrade Darka Dusty and Atlanta poet Laura Carter. We got down in the woods at Pendarvis Farm - the site of the wondrous Pickathon festival - shedding inhibitions and social training, finding our monkey and rolling around in it. Spontaneous ritual emerged. The camera was there and not there. Canned performance art. Camp movies, situationism, pre-Raphaelite influences, mudplay, magic, genre pics, modest nudity, eco porn? ecoporn? The music was invisible, so you don’t get to taste it, but it’s here. Take a look.
