"Seer/Sucker (aka The Illustrated Man's Guitar)" is a mixed-media découpage exploration of better days in the USA.
Taking a bass guitar that was a birthday gift to me from Pat DiNizio of The Smithereens, I set out to relocate it and me to a whole new plane using good ol' paper and paste.
There's a story hidden inside - see it in the midst of still photos; time-lapse imagery; frame-by-frame animation, and straight video.
I shot the photographs and video using a cheap-o camera, composed & arranged the soundtrack music, and except for John O. on the drums, played all the instruments.
