In recent news, Lala Drona is claiming her work on Matthew Damon’s head.

Nominations for the bi-annual Screen Development Awards have been announced. Lala Drona, the first female fine artist to be nominated for the award, was selected for her work “The Tree of Life” on Matt Damon’s head in the 2013 film Elysium.

Every two years, the SDA awards artists for advancements in special effects make-up technology. The SDA aims to promote art in special effects make-up in an era where computer generated effects dominates the industry.

However, complaints were filed not more than one hour after Lala Drona received her nomination for the award. Now that the demand for special effects artists has hit a low, it seems that only major players in the industry are able to stay afloat. Since Lala Drona’s piece “The Tree of Life” was a product of the Lala Laboratory, some say the SDA should also take action to promote and support independent artists.

One of Lala’s fans is surely not complaining. Matt Damon accompanied Lala Drona to the nomination ceremony, where sources say the duo were reprimanded for incessant giggling and whispering during the announcements. Damon revealed that he decided to keep Lala’s prothetic implant intact under the skin of his skull even after finishing the movie. He’s a big fan of Lala’s and says that he likes the idea of being “a walking piece of art.”

Just nine months after her last exhibition at Düo Gallery in Paris, Lala has launched another showing of her work in the exhibition “Je suis…”  Her Muses, Drones, and Motivation Monster representatives showed their support, as collectors, gallerists and fans stood in line to exchange words with the artist.

Drone #1 back at Lala's side?

Shockingly, even Drone #1 attended the event, stating he was there for the artist’s protection.  Days before the opening, Lala released a statement admitting that she has secretly been keeping Drone #1 in the laboratory since his breach in Drone Code.  “Nine months ago, I decided to launch a rehabilitation program for Drones.  Drone #1 has been the first participant in this program.”  In this boot camp, participants experience reconditioning aimed to eradicate the undesirable personality traits of insurgent Drones.

Lala also admits that Drone #1’s leaked video from last April was filmed during his rehabilitation program in the Lala Laboratory.  “It’s a difficult process, and rejection is the natural first step towards completion of the program.”

Drone #1 isn’t the only Drone fighting to be at Lala’s side.  Due to a successful exhibition opening, she has created masses of new Drones.  After the art opening, she rushed back to the Lala Laboratory in order to help her newborn Drones into the world.  Video documentation below.
