Favorite Music Videos of 2014: FKA TWIGS "Two Weeks" by Nabil

Music // Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Nabil has been making some of the best cinematic music videos of the past few years, so we already knew the artistry that he brought to the table. But we would be lying if we didn't say that FKA twigs didn't grow on us this year, and this "Two Weeks" video is a spectacular and dark vision of a goddess or Egytpian Queen of the Future. Whatever it is, the sexually charged lyrics and stunning visuals made this an instant masterstroke.

Erotica // Wednesday, December 17, 2014
We know, it seems a little pretentioius to throw around Henrik Purienne's name around like a Brazilian soccer star, but the book "purienne." is just sitting on our desk so we feel comfortable throwing that around. And the South African photographer uses a nice font for his name. Anyway, Purienne also seems to have created a fantasy world for himself, where he has transformed fashion photography into a behind-the-scenes endless summer of beautiful women, fantastic composition, in naturally appealing settings. As both a filmmaker and publisher of Mirage Magazine, he has his stamp on the fashion world. 

Alexis Hunter: The Model's Revenge and More

Photography // Wednesday, December 17, 2014
We lost an important conceptual artist and feminist theorist this year in New Zealand born photographer Alexis Hunter. One of the few things I bookmarked in my researched this year was a fantastic obituary published by the Guardian at the time of her death, that does the artist way more justice than anything I can writer here.

A Shrine to Circles and Dots, Squares and Rectangles

Design // Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Today our continued obsession with typographic album covers has lead us to Project Thirty-Three, a collection and shrine to "circles and dots, squares and rectangles, and triangles, and the designers that make these shapes come to life on album covers." Maintained by Jive Time Records, a Seattle-based store specializing in used vinyl, the site also features other record related galleries that you can spend way too much time getting lost in...
