Fashion Vs. Architecture: Construct / Deconstruct
The above spreads are from a big feature in PILOT issue 2. It was printed on insert matte stock and printed in a two-colour monotone. It looks much better in the flesh actually, but these lo-res give you a quick feel for the feature, as does the text below…
Recent advances in technology have given architects the tools to create fluid buildings and fashion designers the ability to make garments architectonic. The language of each discipline is increasingly interchangeable as architects incorporate pleating, folding, and weaving into their structural designs while fashion designers use architectural inspiration to express volume and structure. Construct / Deconstruct explores the relationship between fashion and architecture highlighting common ground and suggesting potential new ideas for the future development of both disciplines.
Poster/Listings for UK club ‘Wire’. This project is currently a work in progress. The club hosts a number of nights encompassing a range of music and tastes, so we approached this project with an open mind. A late-night stream-of-conciousness ensued.

I got a call from paul mittleman from stussy in 06, he asked me to produce a series of ads based on my collage art work that i was doing at the time(i couldn’t use a computer)-I was asked to produce a sereis of ads for their upcoming campaign. I was asked to produce ten pieces of artwork in a time span of 2 months (this was all starting from blank).
The whole set of images was based on my bike ride thro east new york and over the williamsburg bridge into town. Using white space i dropped my images onto the paper-overlapping textures ,etc ,finally after 2 solid months i had 10 pieces made -the images made are now resting in folders under my bed waiting to be hung in a gallery.It would be quite refreshing to see by hand work in a gallery in these days of computer heavy images. Producing this type of work is so basic and raw ,but at the same time the images produced are timeless-To make collages ,you will need a travel pass,kinkos card,books from the strand book shop or where ever else you can find them and imagination. The medium used is collage .
Using Artwork and Photo Illustration we created Striking Poster Images for the NIKE Latin America 09 Campaign.
David Gensler and myself started this project last year in summer of 2008. The idea came from an Urb Magazine feature we were doing. Half way through the project we realized that this concept was bigger than a spot in a magazine… We decided to embark on this crazy idea of trying to photograph all the creative types that make up New York City.
I must have cycled, camera in- tow, like a demon, across all bridges and boroughs. It was hot as hell. But definitely worth it! By doing this project, I was able to meet many talented folk that live in New York and I saw some cool and fantastic art.
We are still going strong and will continue to do so until we reach 1000 portraits (dont ask why the number ~ it just sounds magical.) I see this project lasting 5 years, or even longer — really getting as many people as possible… showing the whole spectrum.
