At first glance, Bob Carey appears crazy. Clad in little more than a tutu and a pair of pink gym shorts (so as to avoid being arrested for indecent exposure), Carey has spent the last nine years photographing himself in various locations around the world.
I love pretty things. Julie Dye makes pretty things. She makes books, jewelry, paper mobiles, pocket mirrors, magnets and just about any other girly, delicate thing you could think of. And she makes them all out of paper.
Gallim Dance is the brainchild of choreographer, Andrea Miller. Having the privilege of working with many of Miller’s dancers myself (including Troy Ogilvie, Caroline Fermin and Arika Yamada), I find Miller’s talent to be in taking dancers with such unique styles and divergent skill sets and making them work harmoniously together.
So often when we hear about Iraq, the conversation revolves around political platforms, militaristic strategy and nationalist propaganda. A polarizing topic, Iraq conjures up images of American Flags, the Twin Towers, Saddam Hussein and soldiers battling the desert winds. The documentary film Another War, however, attempts to tell a different story.
I’m no foodie, it’s just too much work. But I know a good cookie when I see one. Lucky Bird Bakery was started in 2009 by fellow New Yorker, Amy Berger. Currently running out of her Brooklyn kitchen, Berger pays homage to her childhood favorites: including chocolate chip, ginger, and oatmeal cherry, among others. Yet, with dashes of sea salt, crystalized ginger, and pistachios, these cookies feel all grown up. Perfect for party favors, catering and gifts, make room in your heart and on your hips, for her cookies, cakes pies and more. Plus, everything is named after a bird. Just endearing.
I don’t know if anyone knows about this, but Converse (yes, the shoe company) has a recording studio, and they let bands record there for free. Seriously. And then they give them free shoes. Its called Rubber Tracks Studio, and their mission is to give back to the creative community, inspire originality, and give emerging bands a chance to get their music out there.
The photographs from An Indecisive Moment attempt to locate the specific rhythm and buried consciousness of a particular moment in time and work to communicate the feminine experience on the threshold of adulthood. Working with dancers from the major New York Dance Companies, the work is largely concerned with the meaning and existence of womanhood in today’s unstable, fragmented world. Specifically how women are able to reconcile the modern female archetype with the reality of their personal experiences.
