Welcome to GIBBIN HOUSE!




When I first started this blog about the misadventures of a nascent author, I had only a small novel under my belt, titled Gibbin House. The building that bears the name is a fictitious postwar era safe-house, as many might have existed, and the London home of my motley crew of exiles. I could not anticipate then the degree to which I would join its ranks of writers and artists, but since publishing my book in 2011, I have had the greatest privilege of opening my own art gallery and of exploring my love of the written word through visual poetry and paper sculptures. Yet much like the girl who first started blogging two years ago, I suspect I don't know what I'm doing half the time. As such, Gibbin House remains a refuge for ramblings...and on occasion a haven for little triumphs.

ATELIER 1022 Studio and Fine Art Gallery in Wynwood Art District and TASCHEN MIAMI present “3-D ArtVergnügen!” - a time- limited unique exhibit of 3-D books and 3-D photography

Artvergnügen...the pleasure of KUNST...now in 3-D!

It's a beautiful thing when art and and the printed page merge!  June 11th this very thing will be happening at the Atelier 1022 Gallery in Miami's Wynwood Art District.  Read on for more information about a temporary exhibit that's a little cheeky, a little rique, a little vintage, and a lot of "Artvergnügen!"...in 3-D:

ATELIER 1022 Studio and Fine Art Gallery in Wynwood Art District and TASCHEN MIAMI are partnering to present a time-limited unique exhibit of 3-D books and 3-D photography “3-D ArtVergnügen!on June 11, 2011, from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM; at Atelier 1022 Gallery on 2732 NW 2nd Avenue.  The exhibit will showcase a large selection of 3-D photographs by Ellie Perla and Carlos Rodriguez-Feo, as well as the newly launched books in 3-D by TASCHEN: The Big Penis Book and The Big Book of Breasts.  The event coincides with Wynwood’s Second Saturday Art Gallery Walk for the month of June.  The 3-D photography exhibit will continue on display at the gallery until the 5th of July, 2011.    
             "Always adventurous publisher TASCHEN is launching its first line of 3D books, and, as you’d expect from a house known for its outsize books—and subjects—the first TASCHEN books getting the 3D treatment are TASCHEN’s Big Body Parts series: The Big Penis Book and The Big Book of Breasts."  Publisher’s Weekly, New York, United States  
            The “3-D ArtVergnügen!exhibit also presents over 160 3-D STEREOCARDS™ - contemporary three-dimensional prints (color and infrared) captured by Atelier 1022’s team of photographers, with the help of the newest photo technology in 3-D, as they traveled the world to immortalize a true view of places and people of the 21st Century.  Atelier 1022 is thus reviving the idea of Stereocards, 3-D photographs that were once mass produced from the mid 19th century on through the early 20th century.  In the spirit of this history, the exhibit will showcase over 100 vintage black and white 3-D images, paralleling Atelier 1022’s modern photos.  Together, this collection of old and new highlights the changes experienced by our society, our creativity and growth. 
            Contemporary three-dimensional photographs on exhibit display images of: London, Bath and Oxford in the UK; Paris, Versailles and Avignon, in France; New York, Miami Beach, and Key West in the US; and Mexico City.  A selection of special effects/infrared 3-D photos and NASA images are added to convey the extent of 3-D use in photography today.
            Among the vintage images on display are scenes of urban and country living of past American life; European masterpieces; plus exceptional 3-D photography of remote corners of the world such as China, India, Japan, Palestine, Peru, Syria and others.
            “Younger generations barely remember that our great-grandfather and great-great-grandfathers were delighted by 3-D viewing as much as we are today. We hope that 3-D books and 3-D STEREOCARDS™ will entice people to preserve tangible and authentic images of today for future generations, images that will not disappear in a computer crash or become obsolete as a new operating system is installed” said Ellie Perla.
            “We are living among a generation that will have no past”, added Carlos Rodriguez-Feo, “and I personally hope we can make a small contribution by saving a 3-D hard copy of this fleeting moment for posterity.”

Most RTS have two currencies gold which is mined and one thing else to train soldiers; perhaps population which have to
be fed from harvests or within the case of Clash of Clans, elixir which is pumped from the bottom.
Yes, the story seems like something dreamed up by a nine-year
old in the 1980's, but there's potential for a schlocky good time
in the silly premise, provided the creators don't take it too
seriously. (2003): Democracy in Israel and
Palestine; Haaretz newspaper 18 May 2003.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
