The weather is a feature of the events. After the NHS clap in May – June 2020, a nude weather report was presented, often to Jerry Halliwell’s song, ‘It’s Raining Men!’
One exercise was to use armature and 3d imaging technology to capture a life pose. The group were able to explore a pose using the Microsoft Kinect software to draw the same pose from three separate view points.
This session @bazlifemodel was invited to pose for part of the session.
Following on from the success of launch, the second event investigated the ideas of Queer domesticity. There were poses formed using cleaning equipment like the vacuum cleaner
Detail of @Tisnewtothee’s drawing was featured in the event poster depicting Miles’ pose with sunglasses, 1950’s motorcycle jacket and a dildo.
