The British Journal of Photography has published a article in the most recent issue (it’s out now) on the "shooting stars in fashion photography" and were kind enough to include us. Other photographers featured are Toyin Ibidapo, Can Evgin, Jez Tozer and Mel Bles. You can read the whole article here as well as our section is below (click to enlarge). We’d like to thank Diane Smyth and Susan Bright for their encouragement in our work.
If early twentieth-century Modernism is characterised as a broadly Western cultural phenomenon, and Postmodernism was shaped by ideas of multi-culturalism, origins and identity, Altermodern is expressed in the language of a global culture. Altermodern artists channel the many different forms of social and technological networks offered by rapidly increasing lines of communication and travel in a globalised world. Artists are responding to a new globalised perception. They traverse a cultural landscape saturated with signs and create new pathways between multiple formats of expression and communication. -from Altermodern

I will eventually copy this idea.
Every afternoon, Xanadu follows me to my desk and eats a Ham Sandwich with me. It’s our routine.
I want a blender. I’ve never had one my entire life. I always thought it was a extravagant item. Now I want one. I would make things in it. I’m not sure what things, but they would be delicious.
We were asked a few months ago to be part of the Visual Arts Fall/Winter 2008 Journal. From their website: "Each issue of Visual Arts Journal features the exemplary talent of the students, faculty and alumni of the School of Visual Arts." They were doing a feature on creative teams (titled "It Takes Two") and interviewed us both. We were pleasantly surprised to get a advance copy in the mail and see they also picked one of our images for the cover! We were very honored to be part of the Journal, especially since we graduated from SVA a little less then 2 years ago. This is the interview below, you can click to enlarge and read.
The folks at MIT have christened their wearable prototype Wear Ur World (WUW), a device cobbled together using everyday gizmos like a mobile projector, Webcam, and mobile phone. Hopefully, when the final product does ship, it’ll reveal a sleeker, less clunky rendition without the colored finger bands, and one that has a discreet mode for when you need to access information privately.
As a demonstration of its capabilities, the wearer can draw a circle on his wrist, prompting the gadget to project a digital clock face, especially great for the myopic.
In the near future, WUW could become an indispensible digital wrist companion to enhance your lifestyle. It could provide product and price comparison information when shopping, retrieve flight information to let the wearer know about delays, automatically pull up related information from the Web when requested, and even snap pictures when you frame a subject with your fingers.
