Copenhagen based Swedish artist and designer Anny Wang and Tim Söderström create a series of hypnotic graphic animations. Their animations explore the application of color to animated forms. Having worked as architects, as well as 3D artists, Anny and Tim have taken their exploration of 3D software from working on real architectural projects to building hyper-real environments based on illustration and animation. The studio strive to create mind tickling and unexpected experiences through materiality and technology.
Always good on a holiday to visit a legend. Seth Epstein catches up with Shawn Stussy to see what the legendary fashion and culture icon is up to. Surfboard shaping is the name of the game in Santa Barbara. Back to the roots. And opening a shop in Tokyo soon…
We close out our year of Oasis and “Definitely Thursday” with the last time Noel Gallagher went full-bore into his bag of early 1990s tricks with the vastly underrated “My Big Mouth” on 1997′s Be Here Now. Even though most of Oasis at this point was cocaine and excess, there were still at the core some pop gems that were destroyed in the studio… but with Noel’s comeback this year, we feel like we can look back on this era fondly.
In the summer of 2009, the founder of all things Citrus Report was in Tokyo to visit one of the studios of famed Japanese photographer, Yasumasa “Yone” Yonehara. While he was there, Yone was working on a project for a Japanese magazine, and footage was shot using a Super 8 camera of the photo shoot.
What you can’t hear in words, you can see in action: the way Yone communicates with the models, his staff, the team involved in the shoot, and the iconic camera and film that Yone uses that has made his “look” so famous today.
After some time away from his blog and the S/Double line, Shawn Stussy looks like he could be launching a surfboard line from which he is shaping and carving. We had expected as much, as AK had seen the making of the Stussy board room at his studio in Santa Barbara… looks like they could be mega. Everyone in the surf world knew that before the Stussy empire began, he was one of the better shapers in the industry. Looks like he is back to his roots.
The grand opera of Radiohead’s 2003 Hail to the Thief album, “There There” is a live triumph as much as it is a studio gem. Having Ed and Jonny kick off the song on drums with Phil, creating a tribal beat over Thom’s clever lick with a Jonny guitar solo erupting in the end apparently had Mr. Yorke in tears in the studio. We cry, too, we cry, too.
