What’s been going on in the land of White Space Project?
So far, there’s been an epic effort from girls all over, starting with customization creations in NYC, hosted by eyewear design duo Coco & Breezy and indie pop singer Yuna Zarai; an art exhibition curated by artist Yan Wei and movie star Fan Bing Bing in Beijing’s ZAN8 gallery space; and a party which was oodles of fun that included an interactive photo wall, held at the Originals store in downtown Athens. Bloggers, TV presenters and Originals fans have all been spotted enjoying the WSP action.
And that’s just a taste of it! There are more events to come so keep your eyes on adidasoriginals.tumblr.com
FLORENCE PITTI UOMO 86 | THE PITTI PRINCESSES
To photograph is to appropriate the thing photographed. It means putting oneself into a certain relation to the world that feels like knowledge — and, therefore, like power. A now notorious first fall into alienation, habituating people to abstract the world into printed words, is supposed to have engendered that surplus of Faustian energy and psychic damage needed to build modern, inorganic societies. But print seems a less treacherous form of leaching out the world, of turning it into a mental object, than photographic images, which now provide most of the knowledge people have about the look of the past and the reach of the present. What is written about a person or an event is frankly an interpretation, as are handmade visual statements, like paintings and drawings. Photographed images do not seem to be statements about the world so much as pieces of it, miniatures of reality that anyone can make or acquire.
