The Well

Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz are geniuses at creating beautiful but tragic stories. What you once thought was playful and innocent is actually a world of chaos; lone wanderers survey the frigid landscape, people and creatures exhibit unnatural tendencies and ill-defined crimes are committed. These imaginary worlds and events will shock you into believing that this world is more cold than we think; where every man is out for himself. Like fairy tales or dreams, the tiny tableaus work as psychological metaphors: specifically, a stage everyone is bound to enter when life has lost its warmth and promise, at which point finding a new way becomes desperately urgent. They speak to isolation and environment, cause and effect, connection and disconnection on individual, global, and ideological levels all within the confines of a snow globe (Travelers) or on landscape panoramas (Islands).

  • Imagination x (too much Alfred Hitchcock Presents + Twilight Zone) + obsession with snow
  • Down. That's way down the line. But let's put it in our calendars.
  • Oh yeah... and the first one reminds me of the Ring. It gives me the creeps.
  • Yase... they're pretty sweet. I'd like to see "Lemmings" one where there are a bunch of people wearing business suits clutching stacks of Washington Mutual stock certificates walking over the edge of a cliff into the sea in a snowglobe. (Was that a run on sentence?)
  • I do!
  • Those are crazy cool! The artists will be showing on the Westside in September. Who wants to go?
