Fashion // Friday, June 05, 2015
Our friends at Volcom are getting set to release a new surf video that we got a teaser for this morning. Mostly, this just makes us wish we can get out of the office and head to a beach summer and do some of what you see here. Oh wait, its Friday, we may already be doing it and you don't know?

“Incision” A Film by Vhils

Street Art // Friday, June 05, 2015
We are all products of the chaos that surrounds us,” says Portuguese street artist Alexandre Farto – aka Vhils – in André Santos’s film, which documents the indigenous village of Araçaí, Brazil, where 90 Guaraní people were moved by the government at the turn of this century, displacing them from their ancestral lands. Immortalizing these forgotten people, Farto carves their portraits onto buildings and the doors of their homes – mixing indigenous and new techniques – giving them the voice and dignity they have been denied.

Dealing with questions like what is human and where are memories, the sculpture installation Intimate Vestiges by Fiona Roberts transforms the mundane into psychedelic poetry. A rug of fingers, faces in pillows and mouths on chairs, these anthropomorphized objects allow viewers to rethink what just is and what is taken for granted.

Kelly Kozma "Confetti Crackle Pop" @ Paradigm Gallery, Philadelphia

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 05, 2015
"Confetti Crackle Pop," works by Kelly Kozma now on display at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, features an array of mixed media techniques, including hand embroidery, painting, and collage, creating a body of work that shows the growth and transition that occurs in the passing of time. With every individual stitch made, knot tied or circle punched, a new notch is added to my timeline. Because of the meticulous nature and time consuming aspect involved in developing each piece, it feels as though time is physically being marked

28 Chinese @ The Asian Art Museum, SF

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 05, 2015
“You have to go to the art. It has more meaning when you see it in context.” Mera Rubell, the former Head Start schoolteacher speaks from experience, and unabashedly, from the heart, as does her husband Don. When asked what he remembers most of his visit to China, “the humanity” is his answer. The couple was in San Francisco for the June 5 opening of 28 Chinese which ushers a summer series at the Asian Art Museum. The couple started collecting years ago on a $25 per month art budget and reminisced about the Mud Bar where their friend Keith Haring curated a show by Tseng Kwong back in the day.

The Surreal Photographs of Hugh Kretschmer

Photography // Thursday, June 04, 2015
Hugh Kretschmer’s photographs are highly conceptual as well as imaginative.

Treehouse & Skate Bowl Living in the Woods by Foster Huntington

Design // Thursday, June 04, 2015
I want to live in the woods, too. I'm not sure I can design a treehouse fort type situation with skate bowl and hot tub beneath, but this feels very West Marin and pretty on point to living in the woods creatively. (If you live in the Bay, or have taken mushrooms and listened to the Dead, you know the West Marin reference). Foster Huntington created this treehouse with friends, and the making of is now part of a Kickstarter instructional book project, as well as a great documentation video of the process.
