BLAXIDERMY IS IN THE PAST & FUTURE

I am taking a break from this tumblr. As you probably know,Ā I’ve had the “Blaxidermy” tumblr and URL for years. Blaxidermy is a project that I started many years back, and I feel that my research, work, and interests have evolved and the blaxidermy.com site has become a catch-all for images from my life and work instead of the focused project it was intended to be. So, I am going to keep this here as an archive until it is refocused. In the meantime, follow me on instagram, twitter, Facebook, and check out my website as it evolves: pamelacouncil.com

Love,

Pamela Council

Xu Bing “Phoenix” at the Cathedral. This cathedral is one of my favorite #happy places in nyc. It’s a great place to wander, take in some sights, & quiet my busy mind. Fun to see this installation here!  (at Cathedral of St. John the Divine, NYC)

#TBT if you think I’m 90s now….
On this day in 2001, when all you fancy bitches didn’t have cell phone service, I was happy to be with the retro throwback movement that was BEEPERS IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM. I got all my pages! Paired with my customized Air Force 1s and one-shoulder tank top, this beeper let me know that my dad was safe while I was in that morning of terror in downtown manhattan.
