Palladium: Tokyo Rising

Palladium (boots) wants to take us everywhere. In a recent collaboration--with Pharrell William serving as host--we are taken to post-Fukushima/tsunami/earthquake Tokyo, Japan. As the city that holds a special place in my heart and mind, as it does for so many, I was very excited to see this project happen. Pharrell doesn't have much to say, which is fine by me, as it allows for the city and it's people to do the talking--even a trippple nippples diva makes an appearance. One of the most interesting segments is in video 4 in which Japanese "REMIX" culture is discussed. Check it out HERE and learn some about what makes Tokyo such a phenomenal place.

Yolanda Dominguez and "Livings"

Yolanda Dominguez is a Spanish artist who orchestrates "livings" wherein she insights social commentary and participation with acts of art that find their place within everyday, lived, experience. The video below showcases Dominguez's work to bring to life the poses struck by models in magazines into the three-dimensional lived spaces of society--the outcome provokes some humor and underlines the true strangeness of haute couture fueled poses. See more of Yolanda Dominguez HERE on her site.
