Sissi Götze at Fashion Week Berlin AW 2013

 I’ve returned to Berlin again over a year since me being here last and it’s been so far (aside from a bad döner messing with health) a rather pleasant experience. I was able to attend my first Fashion Week ever where I got a first hand look at Berlin based designer Sissi Götze’s work in the separate “Studio” room adjacent to the …

THE NEW YORK ART BOOK FAIR 2012: A Recollection

Another year, another art book fair. I honestly can’t believe how one subjects themselves to such an anxiety inducing event such as NYABF on an annual basis.

It’s …

Flux Death Match: The New Aesthetic

Basically at its most essential can be categorized as a melding of the digital realm with the real world. We humans viewing the world through the eyes of our very own technology, and what beautiful aesthetic qualities …

Strata by Quayola

Yesterday after choking down a horrible popsicle I bought on the High Line in Chelsea that I thought would be good (rhubarb and chai) I decided to see what one of my new favorite galleries bitforms was up to. After seeing an incredible show by Zimoun earlier this semester, I’m sure I was in for something great. Upon arrival I was met with …
