Secret lives of puppets

Marionettes by Scott RadkeMarionettes by Scott RadkeMarionettes by Scott Radke

Scott Radke's marionettes and more puppetry at spaceandculture.
"Puppeteers... are discovering that audiences don't want yet another take on realism. People want the artificiality of puppets; they want to suspend disbelief and use their imagination. 'I think there's a hunger for spectacle - for those things that were there before realism took over,' [Old Trout] Balkwill says."

(from Puppet Regime by Bruce Weir, enRoute magazine April 2005)
