Stanley Kubrick Archive – severed head

31 03 2010

Amy Robinson, VADS Collections Manager, wrote the following tweet yesterday: Last week the Look-Here! project team saw a severed head at the Stanley Kubrick Archive:
I mention it here in the context of the visual impact of the object.
The University of the Arts London archive table was laid out with photographs from A Clockwork Orange (1971) and research material from Barry Lyndon (1975), amongst other items, so it was amazing, but really what stood out most of all was the life-like model of a severed head that was produced to be used in the film Full Metal Jacket (1987).
It can be hard to beat the impact of real objects.
