At the very least, take notice of it and say "hey, we can do that too!" But no. All that Dune money probably will go to the next Merritt clan kegger.

Those exhibits look fantastic, Kwisatz. I assume that most of the costumes that you have are from the European productions? Without trying to make a joke here, wise choice leaving the hats out. I do joke about those hats a lot, but I'm with Freak; they were just plain silly.

I have all costumes from both miniseries (11 so far). Any props from Lynch's attempt are way too much expensive.
No hats were for sale unfortunately.

There would be 2 more exhibitions till June, one after another. One of them will also accompany the ceremony of honoris causa for Polish astronomer.

Hehe, maybe in the future ;) (HINT) If somebody would ask Mr Siudmak to come to a Worldcon (or other big convention) and would like to make such an exhibition it's a very good chance that he says yes ;) He was a Guest of Honor at Worldcon held in Boston. I don't remember which year was it.

Hmmm. One of the guests to the 2011 Renocon died (Charlie Brown), so there is a position open. I wonder how you go about getting someone invited? Not much of a conner myself.

Yes, I know. He was at Polcon in Poland few years ago. I think it's too late to invite him this year, but maybe next year? He also mentioned to me that it would be a good idea to make an exhibition in various city in States.

I don't get it either ;) What do you mean by that exactly?
(happy now you language purists? English is not my first language and I didn't use it much since high school ;) ) Let's focus on the merits.

That's the wonder of it, its not.

And this piece is outstanding. Do you know what it's cast from?

It's a miniature of Eternal Love sculpture on rotated basis. It's a photosensitive resin based on stereolithography image of prototype of his sculpture also based on his painting Eternal Love from 1981.

You could see this process on the pictures below. He finished and polished this resin by himself.

Thanks. :D

And another Q, the prints, do they all have Dune as there inspiration or are some interpreted as being fitting?

Re: Dune exhibition with art of Wojciech Siudmak

Posted: 03 Jun 2011 10:45
by Kwisatz
They all have Dune as an inspiration, but mind of this artist is working in very mysterious ways ;) He is making references in his drawings to other ideas, art and future possible technology. That's why these drawings are rather a dialog with the books than simply illustrations of the story. It's his own interpretation of the ideas behind the story.

my implied question was along the lines of : what is the "involvement" of the "HLP" ? (meaning Brian Herbert who signs
what Keith & the Lawyers tell him to ...)(admittedly speculation, but I've no seen proof otherwise, and this speculation
accounts for 100% of the "HLP's" behavior in the McDune Era ...)

also, from the photos, I was struck by how beautiful, professional, and serious this exhibit is;
perhaps best explained by the non-involvement of the "HLP"; if this thing was held in America, it would
be in the circular foyer around a basketball arena, or the side banquet rooms of a Marriott Hotel; Keith
would be sitting there in a folding metal chair behind a folding 6-foot banquet table badly skirted with
pleated orange nylon & polyester, HellHole posters duct-taped to the concrete-block wall behind
him, cardboard boxes of non-revenue-generating trade paperbacks, pre-signed, strewn about ... two of
the five stormtroopers of the 501st "Honor Guard" would be twitching back and forth between Internet
Tough Guy and Sheer Fucking Terror that the OH was about to show up and give them wedgies thru their
buttplate armor, two of the 501ers would be standing in front of the candy machines, helmets off, arguing
who would win Darth Vader vs. Sheena Queen of the Jungle if Sheena had one of those double light
saber things or unobtainium grenades ... the fifth one would be pretending to adjust his utility belt's
rigging to his codpiece armor plate but actually masturbating to the two fat chicks who showed up in the
Princess Leia Slave Girl costumes ... and the public attendance to the exhibit would be zero ...
