This VIMEO is by someone named Roy Two Thousand. Judging by this excellent video, Roy must be a fascinating fellow. I do not know Roy, but have experienced what you will see here. It is not for the faint of art.

Elvis Island Immigration Station

Saturday, July 26, was a turning point, make it over the hump kind of day in the Mind Shaft. Uncle Sam’s Elvis Island Immigration Station hardware fabrication was completed except for a few minor tweaks yet to be done. The creative process is now well under way with paint and stain being applied, and the audio and video editing is about to commence. Dr. Rheinbrain, the extraterrestrial anthropologist, and Dr. Fabio, the renowned French anthropologist, are simultaneously working on their large round icons that will reside on each side of Elvis Island Immigration Station. The book table is complete, the new books need to be fabricated. Dr. Gee Whiz repurposed the head from Skjerry back to Skelvis. There is nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.
