me pink polka-dot jumper

My pink polka-dot jumper is sadly no longer with us – although its remains do live on in tiny pieces, for example in the form of some home-made buttons for which I was on the receiving end of cruel teasing from at least one of my siblings (though not as cruel as the teasing I was subjected to over the actual sweater, during its heyday). These photographs from 2013 by Ronnie The Dux Medal are special because you can see here the origin of the item’s demise – the fraying armpit (which, at the time, provided a convenient viewing window for when I wanted to show people my armpit’s first hairstyle involving the presence of hair).

Zeitgeber starring Gestalta

During a sweeping visit back to Blighy in July 2013, I went to Wiltshire and experimented with taking video footage on a Canon 5DmkII with a Lensbaby Muse.  Consequently here’s a little atmospheric semi-narrative music video for my friend Eigenfrequenz’s song ‘Frequenz 18: Zeitgeber’, starring Gestalta as (according to my ad hoc analysis) a “romantic but morbid girl, a bit of a loner, lost in her own world and somewhat obsessed with death” floating around in the swelteringly hot rural English summer meadows thinking dark thoughts.

I did an interview a few months ago for a website called Street Voice.

I did an interview a few months ago for a website called Street Voice. Since this is my long format blog, I’ll copy the text of the interview into this post. So you can read it here or on their website, where there are more pictures 🙂

Street Voice Introduction: Sometimes I come across bands, models and photographers I want to feature in Street Voice. Rebecca Tun is one of those people! After reading what Rebecca is all about I knew she’d feature well in the Street Voice pages. A stunning model and an equally brilliant photographer. A few questions were sent off to Rebecca and this is what she had to say for herself!

Street Voice: First off Rebecca can you tell our readers a little about yourself please?

I’m a model, photographer, all-round travelling arty freak, geek and ex-philosopher.

Street Voice: How come you decided that being a nude model was going to be the right path for you?

I fell into it after modeling for some art classes while I was a student. The nudity went without saying because it would have been odd not to use my whole body for modeling. And while I didn’t go into nude modeling with political motives (I didn’t come from a context where having no clothes on was a big deal), I’ve since learned that not everyone in the world has or feels the same freedom that I do; so I’ve gone from being neutral about it to feeling proud about sharing my nudity.

‘Over Your Head’ by Team Foul – behind the scenes write-up

In July I returned to my childhood neighbourhood of South East London to shoot a quirky rap video with rap duo Ley and Lucky who perform under the name of Team Foul. I’d never acted in a music video for a song with words before, and the brief was quite vague – the plan was to make it up as we went along. It was real novelty, a challenge, and an unusual opportunity. Continue reading


‘Over Your Head’ by Team Foul

This is a music video which I filmed in London last July (2013) with rap duo Ley and Lucky, a.k.a. Team Foul. See next post for the behind the scenes write-up.


a modern poem: ra ra Rasputin, lover of stones with stripes

ra ra Rasputin, lover of stones with stripes.

He was a bankrobber but he never hurt nobody.

ra ra Rasputin, lover of stones with stripes.

He just very interesting. He just loved to steal your children.

ra ra Rasputin, lover of stones with stripes.

Spock in bed, ray of time, eminently practical garb.

ra ra Rasputin, lover of stones with stripes.

Some natives at the airport and the propanol in the shrubs. Continue reading

One of my mini sisters, Auntie Debby, is a budding talented artist. In what seems to have been a rapid burst of creative inspiration she recently produced a series of portraits based on photographs, four of which were of me. I love her joyfully liberal yet totally spot-on colour placement and application. And she’s only 15. Such fun! Continue reading


… on targeted advertising, young Wittgenstein, a wilderness and my elf

image

I really approve of targeted advertising. In my experience it’s been a win-win situation. (And more generally, I’d say about 80-85% of my happiness and accomplishments in life have been due to searching- and sharing-technology, but that’s a topic for another essay.) In the summer of 2012 my liking a Facey B page on Wittgenstein led to my seeing an ad from Riding-Iceland for a horse trip that would follow the trek that young Wittgenstein and his pal David Pinsent made 100 years earlier in the south of Iceland.
