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 .

Saturday

confined spaces

Escapism is the attempt to divert attention from an unpleasant reality.

a crowd surrounds in disbelief...

[Billy Tempest]

 During one escapology act, Billy inadvertently invited a mentally disabled out-patient to check his bindings. The gentleman was understandably attentive when watching Billy escape from his straight-jacket.
