DYnamic – MAXimum – tensION

“Dymaxion”- the idea that rational action in a rational world demands the most efficient overall performance per unit of input.

Buckminster Fuller. What a genius. What a prodigy. What a rational.

Dennis Hopper; actor, painter, poet, photographer, etc, etc… May the talented jack of all trades and women rest in peace after an iconic career.

Camping Out

Round three of the H&M HIV/AIDS prevention campaign! For the S/S 2010 season, with music festivals as inspiration, suitable muses Lou Dillon and Elizabeth Jagger model the goods. I’m not so into purple leopard print, or paisley, but it works.  Plus, the fact that they included (a super cheap) tent and sleeping bag in this collection (and produce this campaign) is pretty awesome.  The low price tag may equate to a potentially soggy festival evening, but at least you’ll stand out.



Jumpology

The Sunday paper featured Phillipe Halsman’s jump photographs (!!) which look like an extraordinary amount of fun.

“When you ask a person to jump, his attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping, and the mask falls, so that the real person appears.” 

Exhibition closes Friday, so swing by this week! (20 West 57th Street)
