Last week, a Twitter friend called Michael S. Lucart pointed me to a story he'd written which merges the worlds of Twin Peaks, Washington and Burkittsville, Maryland of Blair Witch Project fame. I enjoyed the '99 horror movie, and was immediately intrigued by this piece of fan fiction because there's indeed a connection between both stories: the evil in the woods.
Watching Twin Peaks recently inspired Holly Wales to create a set of geometric illustrations, which explores ideas about how narrative affects the way images are presented separately rather than as whole complete scenes.
Nail art doesn't involve sliding cut-out letters under the nail (that's just psychopath behavior), but it's the craft of drawing pictures on acrylic nails which can then be stuck on top of natural ones. This calls for an example, like this Twin Peaks inspired set of nails!
I remember when I was a kid, you know, dividing my heaps of leisure time between Princess Zelda and Laura Palmer, I always hoped somebody would make a game adaptation of Twin Peaks. And for a while, there were indeed crazy rumors going around that Hi Tech Expressions was to release a Twin Peaks video game...
If you're into graphic novels and Twin Peaks, the second installment in the King of the Flies comic book trilogy might be worth the read. According to Fantagraphics Books, King of the Flies Vol. 2: The Origin of the World is "a French Twin Peaks graphic novel as written by Stephen King and drawn by Charles Burns."
Stella Im Hultberg is, contrary to what her name might suggest, a South Korean born painter raised in Seoul, Hong Kong, Taiwan and California, and now living in Brooklyn. As one of the participating artists in the past In The Trees art exhibit, she drew inspiration from Audrey Horne for her contribution.
Trees... Good girl with secrets... The Pacific Northwest? No, the cable network that brought you Mad Men and Breaking Bad is not airing a Twin Peaks remake, but there are an awful lot of similarities. Including the tagline.
Fire (walk with me) is a 9-channel video installation by Sharon Bradley, showing continously looped establishing shots of the fireplaces in Twin Peaks. The Canadese video artist was inspired by "The Yule Log" television program which airs around Christmas since 1966 and shows a yule log burning in the fireplace for two up to four hours, to a soundtrack of classic Christmas music and without commercial interruption.
A "sweded" movie is a low-budget recreation of a popular film often made by fans and using limited material and resources. So Fabien Chombart, a David Lynch fan from Île-de-France took his camcorder and shot his own version of the feature film, Fire Walk With Me.
A few months ago, the controversial Vice magazine did a fashion shoot inspired by Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Meet Laura Palmer (Amelia Gilliam) and Donna Hayward (Brittany Nola) as seen through the lens of Jonathan Leder and styled by Annette Lamothe-Ramos.
Except for the guns and a Donna that's too much of an Audrey, I think they set the mood quite right. Hell, there's even a picnic scene!
