Hypernormalization

I brought Berlin Quarterly‘s issue number 4 (we also have the latest number 5) with me on trips recently. Articles on algorithm programs used in predicting viral epidemics, super telescopes, behind the scene photos of the European Space Agency and an interview with Adam Curtis – creator of socio-political and socio-historical documentary films (edited with stock footage from the BBC)… amongst other current subject matter.

Curtis’s latest one “HyperNormalisation” is a brilliant wrap-up of the last 30 years in western politics and current social tendencies which touches on many key issues and offers them with original footage. Starts out a little bumpy but finds its rhythm soon after. I highly recommend watching this and other films of his…

Versions One. 12-2016.

VERSIONS capsule collection

These are photos of an introductory collection to Versions, our in-house line.

This first splash focuses on prints but we’ve already begun working on cut-and-sew items for SS17.

Production can get real tricky and take time to set-up properly so I decided to start somewhere manageable, and grow it from there.

Alexis Coutu-Marion and I designed a sun, a moon, a scatter of the ibiki logo as a salute to the shop, and a space gazer (which is a graphic made with a photograph of a sculpture by Luc Paradis).

These photos were taken with some friends in my studio (whitewallstudio.co)… and we’ll be releasing more on our instagram page (@versionsversionsversions) in the coming weeks so do add us if you’d like to stay connected to this project!

Furniture Set

This is a render (by Gaelle Le Couster) of the window furniture I designed for Le Partage pop-up, which took over the window area during the holiday season.

Window Installation by Jonah Leslie. 12- 2017.

Garment Bags

I had to cut playtime short with the garment bags because of Le Partage Pop-up. Only got one variation in with this set even though it has much potential.

Isabelle Wenzel

Isabelle had a little spread in the latest 1Granary issue and I thought it a good excuse to feature her work on the site. Most of her images feature herself and are shot with a timer. She’s from Germany, studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam (where she still lives), and is born in the same year as me, 1982.
