Invisible things by Noëlle Maline

With the flicker of a bird .. I prefer distractions and being interrupted . These days , I am a luggage organizer , book filer and background diorama painter .. I look at the night sky and watch old films .. Collect shadows and uncertainties .. I make art with fragments and broken images .. Paper , things and sounds .


hunt for traveling gallery

i have been on the lookout for one of these grand land subs.
it will make for a perfect traveling museum....
on dry oceans and lakes.
and we can set up in some most interesting places.
so-i will look and look.


pioneertown movie

one very hot weekend,
a bunch of friends met
out in the desert
at pioneertown
for a few days -
and we all got rooms at the pioneertown motel- which was an old western movie set- and our little dogs came along also-
fugu, angus and gruff gruff.
this film was shot with my new little super 8 camera-
that james gave to me while we were there!
it was the very first movie i made with it.
and thank you for the lovely editing job james
our home reflects who we are.
or who we wish we could reflect.
on a particular day.

if i were a house

if i were a house...
this would be one of my 

proper way to eat sushi

i have to admit sometimes
i like to make wasabi soup
with my soy sauce
and i dip the rice end into the 
soy sauce
from now on though
i will practice correct
sushi eating and
make sure to smile 

cut out faces

cutting out faces

i happen to like to cut out people's
out of old photographs i find 
at the flea market.
then they can be anybody 
you want them 
to be.
they can 
even be me...

a bare room

since i have moved back to california,
my house has been
very bare.
things are still in storage.
looking forward to having a nice place
to hang out in and have small picnics in
living room...


my grackle face

and on a rainy day i like to make
grackle pictures.
here i am as a tourist with a grackle face on...
on a swing with lovely knees highs...
and even anjelica huston is holding a grackle 
face up.

the rain rain rain

it has been raining so much the last few days
that i have been staying in and working on things and making things...
got my old sewing machine working and fixed some dresses.
i have been playing around with some plastic cameras and
took some pictures of my cat and dog being bored and stuck inside.
the backyard turns into a lake and the street in the front
turns into a dirty, brown river. cars were underwater down the street and people had to leave their apartments....
a tornado hit sunset beach yesterday! it picked up some boats and a
van and threw them back down...
i suppose going for a stroll down the pier will have to
wait another day.
it's closed off.
