From Paris to Denver

24 Apr

From Paris to Colorado          Sources at Air France have confirmed that Lala Drona will be returning home to the mile-high city in one week’s time.  To the disappointment of Drones everywhere, Lala does not plan to participate in gallery showings nor plans to make appearances at any high-society events.  An interview with the L.D. Times states that the artist is in fact returning to the US for medical reasons.

As Drones everywhere know, Lala’s medical past has been a source of inspiration for her art.  In the L.D. Times article, she speaks about plans for a future series called Cyborgs Have More Fun which like her ongoing Breast Series is inspired by bodily alterations.  “The reconstruction of her breast at such an early age called for a reformation of her entire world view,” states Valerie Cutter, head child psychologist at the University of Minnesota.  “She finds comfort in modification, in change.  It’s no wonder she’s attracted to the idea of cyborg.”

With her breast reconstruction trauma far behind her, Lala has big plans for her next bodily modification. Friedrich Strasse, Events Coordinator for the Drones Research Program-Berlin states that Lala has been having hand and wrist issues for years, often interfering with her work.

“We used to joke about her being the first artist with a mechanical hand.  I never thought she’d actually do it!” Sources say Lala plans to meet with an American team of medical specialists and designers to create a prosthetic for Lala’s hand.

In online forums, Drones discuss Lala’s future plans for hand modification, wary of the effects it may have on her art.  Will the art still be hers, or will her style change?  When will the project be underway, and is the project in connection to the Lala Laboratory?  Drones everywhere are on the lookout for Lala in Colorado, trying to catch a glimpse of the artist in her natural habitat.
