Milwaukee Goth Army
June 27, 2008
I’ll admit it: while I was never a full-on Goth, I did own The Crow on VHS and wear a lil’ bit of black. Why this is relevant at all is the below work, which are closeups of a model Apache helicopter painted black with enamel paint. So: black helicopters. Not that I consider myself particularly clever, but what I like about these images has less to do with their visual appeal than to what they suggest for me in terms of conflicting reads, whether it’s the paranoia of the “black helicopter” or teenage goth affectations or something else. They’re a meeting point for a whole bunch of references, which is the main reason I like them.
