friday saw la donna and yootha essaying their latest (meticulously) thrown-together looks at an opening at 4a followed by a quick fuel up at Bettys Soup Kitchen ("not that kind of restaurant") and on to the Stonewall (a quick turn of the stage with friday nite junior bride crowd)to warm up for Kooky. Such eminent luminaries as John Tonkin graced the dancefloor at Kooky as did an alluring assortment of tutu wearing riotgrrls, drinkbegging jailbait and the drainpipe legged cognoscenti. And those skinny boys in glo-inthedark mudpaint and teazedup wigs....made me reflect on our achievements so far and even tho one said "love your look...I would SO wear that" (THAT being tiger print jumpsuit - very ex-wife of rod stewart) ...............................................................

lachlan did some exquisite darrell lea foil work on the Nettis bust yesterday on a grey blustery afternoon. The Wild Boys' component of the New Day show could well become a warnerised foilised pleasure dome grotto extravaganza. I was drawing itty bitty 'irregular geodesic' triangles trying to imagine how the cave would look, then saw tim's drawing which had bigger starker triangles. will it become ceremonial, sleazy, cramped and mystifying, a home away from home, a place to dump the kids / empties,

Cave idea – corrugated cardboard - irregular geodesic dome
Cave to fit two or three crouching nomads
Fur floor (fake? Real?)
Build cave in chunks in studio (cardboard from “Good Guys” – Richard to organise van)
8 hrs of unedited raw footage playing inside cave? (TV screens)
Edited video projected outside
Interior of cave lined with Lachlan’s red foil
Cave as clubhouse, womb, interior space, shelter, sacred space
