jaimerobert johnson at NSCC graduation 6/08

Finally all things have come together to to put the music to the "Verge." This has taken awhile to fall into place; hardware, software and bi-coastal communications issues can be smoothed out but in this case meeting up at the media lab is the better plan.

jaimerobert Johnson came west to work and play music with some old friends during summer break. In this mix he is taking time to lay the tracks at the very lab the video was made. It is great to be past these tech hurdles and onto the raison d'etre.

Sometimes patience is a good thing.

Video cast pictures are at the ArdisAllyn Picasa site.
Posers Flickr spot has a slide show of "Species on the Verge" pictures.

Western Gallery

I am a slacker on the blog but that doesn't mean I am not working!

A few days ago I found out that Western Gallery wants a sustainable fashion show (and I am negotiating fr a mini version of the fashionRIP installation. This based on the argument that clothing in context, like art and words is the truer statement aka artist's intent, for what is ground breaking, visual shifting or radical etc becomes part of the lexicon after awhile and therefore loses impact. This is especially true to fashion and I will go into this in an article I want to write for the Ethical Fashion Forum- a shameless tease)

Showtime means Water dresses are on the cutting table and under the needle. After all that black mourning this blue, green, lavender palette is a joy to play in despite the undercurrents in the topic. The relative and the juxtapose, the relationship and the idealized futurism.....its all there! its always all there.

London was fabulous. I am posting photos of the wonderful group brought together by Nicola of Beautiful Soul (website will be up soon) and Jaime to make this stay one of the highlights of my life! I will write more later, but have to get an article to the Ballard News Tribune.

If you are new to this blog please go to the links on the left and see the Ardisallyn photos of the video shoot as well as the Flickrr slideshow on the Posers link. If you click on the photo a caption appears and this will help you get an idea of the first chapter of fashionRIP "the Species on the Verge"

I am going to have to get a blog for this "new to the site thing" as my cards are now global wanderers and this blog is a scrolling journal affair. When the Verge premieres a proper website will be necessary but til then the money goes elsewhere. Gallery, showing space suggestions are wanted as the original venue didn't get their grant..... thank you. (please respond as all ideas are welcome...go to the Teachstreet link to contact me)
