JeongMee Yoon’s Pink and Blue photo series

Alison Zavos Contributor

By Alison Zavos in New Photography on Monday 24 November 2008

Working out of Seoul, South Korea, JeongMee Yoon has a wonderfully vibrant photo series consisting of children with their pink and blue items. We asked her about the genesis of it: ‘The project began from five-year-old daughter, who loved the color pink so much that she wanted to wear only pink clothes and play with only pink toys and objects. I discovered that my daughter’s case was not unusual. In the United States, South Korea, and elsewhere, most young girls love pink clothing, accessories and toys. This phenomenon is widespread among children of various ethnic groups, regardless of their cultural backgrounds. Perhaps it’s the influence of pervasive commercial advertisements aimed at little girls and their parents, such as the universally popular Barbie and Hello Kitty merchandise that has developed into a modern trend. Girls train subconsciously, and unconsciously, to wear the color pink in order to look feminine’.

By Zolton in New Music on Wednesday 12 April 2006

So I interviewed Bianca, one half of Coco Rosie, the other morning. Love their music: very dramatic, almost operatic in its scale yet imbued with a sense of sonic unease that carries the divine melodies well beyond their maudlin minor key progressions.

When it’s pouring outside, the last thing you want to do is stand in the rain after leaving that umbrella at the office.

An urban lifestyle brings so much artificial light with it. We have lights in our faces all the time – from house lights, street lamps, computer screens, smart phones, and television sets. Such high exposures to artificial lighting wreck havoc with our internal Circadian rhythm and creates unbalanced photosensitivity in us which affects our quality of sleep.

London now has its very own death ray! Kind of. It hasn’t yet opened (in fact construction has not even finished) but the Walkie Talking building in central London is already making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Or right reasons if you’re a global troublemaker and dream of ruling the world.

Mr & Mrs Smith’s City Spy: Austin, TX

Mr & Mrs Smith Reader Find

By Mr & Mrs Smith in Cool Travel on Tuesday 16 July 2013

If Austin was a car, it’d be a VW campervan. The capital of the Lone Star State, Austin has seen its popularity (and population) soar in recent years: between 2000 and 2006, it was the third fastest growing city in the United States.
