"Science Fair" by R.Ellis Orrall
This 34 page, full color, spiral bound 11 X 8/12 book details the Science Fair that had Nashville talking. "He's an idiot", "These projects don't make sense", and "Where's the science?" were just a few of the comments made by the crowds that packed Estell Gallery for 2 months. Not only can you view the 12 Science Fair projects, but you also get the authors sound reasoning as to why each of these wonders of the world deserve first-place recognition.
"R. Ellis Orrall is the slightly abbreviated nom d'artiste of singer/songwriter/producer Robert Ellis Orrall, the man behind Infinity Cat Recordings and proud papa of the brothers JEFF … the Brotherhood. As if that weren't enough, Ellis is also a painter of skewed autobiographical narratives that combine naïve renderings with keen observations that are at once confessional and absurd. This latest show at Estel Gallery riffs on the staging of an elementary school science fair, and through Ellis' skewed doodlings, we learn that all white mice always die, most really expensive food is French and that it's fun and easy to make wine out of grape juice. While many songwriters are satisfied just to be clever, Ellis' work is shot through with a genuine zaniness that should make this show a delight (NASHVILLE SCENE)
