Pop Pop Bang Bang Project

Pop Pop Bang Bang is a collaborative between photographer Thomas Brown creative director Anna Burns which visually projects the abstract relationship, and use, of film, photography and pyro. Set to three different backgrounds, the conceptual project is intriguing, engaging and one-of-a-kind. The duo of artists created a wall of umbrellas displaying elements of the classic B-Movie and located them within three of London's most traditional locations.

Jin Kay - Parsons Designer of the Year

The incredibly talented Jin Kay has now been placed among some of fashion's finest after receiving the coveted womenswear award for Parsons, The New School for Design. The pre-fall, women's ready-to-wear, collection was inspired by the dynamic and relationship between Eastern and Western concepts. Kay was inspired by the 1930's book, In Praise of Shadows, and the collection mirrors the ideas brought forth of the deep and intricate exploration of beauty from one side of the world to the other. Kay has acquired an impressive roster of awards and honors since moving to New York in 2005 and starting his career in fashion. This latest collection is a visual testament to that talent and the potential that has only begun take form.

Doug Aitken: Installation Art

Doug Aitken is an artist in every sense of the word. He has experimented in almost every medium from photography, sculpture and print to multi-media, sound installation and video. His work has spanned over 3 decades and continues to build and inspire. Aitken is known for his abstract interpretations of art imitating life and inviting us as observers to feel the human experience through provocative environments. His success is most often linked to his work on outdoor large scale installations. One of my favorite projects was created in 2011, through his combining of photography, text and light in the Neon Lit Lightbox Series. Aitken's most recent exhibit, Altered Earth, cross stitches the paths of architecture, landscape and sound into a retrospective of moving images, fiction and non-fiction, spanned across 12 screens. The project took 4 years to create and is one of his most inspiring collaborations to date. Check out the link to Dazed Digital's interview and photos for Altered Earth, and additional photos for the Lighbox Series.
