Using typography to add personal emphasis, John spotlights consistently inspiring works of interest, as well as his engaging dialogues with designers, artists, and factotums. To browse the site feels a bit like a going on a thoughtful tour of the internet's ever-reaching interiors -- take a look.
TEENAGE FILM BLOG
Based on Jon Savage's history of youth culture, Teenage is an in-progress and highly promising documentary about teens of yore, dating back to the early 20th century. The accompanying blog, edited by Kelly Rakowski, is a treasure trove of all that is totally teen, taking the form of a fanzine and featuring revealing, "dear diary"-esque guest posts of personal photos and soundtracks. Visit the blog and if you're in New York, check out their screening this Friday at the Anthology Film Archives for the film festival Migrating Forms.
THE MAKERS PROJECT
For The Makers Project, Brooklyn-based photographer Jennifer Causey documents and interviews area artisans as they engage in their tactile fields of work. Among the vivid profiles featured so far are the coffee enthusiasts of Blue Bottle, the chandelier makers of Pelle Designs, and most recently the designer of charming label Wiksten. Meet all of the 16 makers currently on the site and for updates on new additions, follow The Makers Project on Twitter.
Space 15 Twenty is pleased to present Input : Output, a custom audio and curated lifestyle pop-up shop. Inspired by a love of industrial design and analog equipment, the shop will premiere handmade audio components designed by musician / furniture designer Philip Sumner and Kevin Carney, founder of The Generic Man and Mohawk General Store. "The idea is to have a workshop where Philip and I will test, audition, and create retro-styled speakers and tube amps," says Carney. "While wearing white lab coats, of course."
Hitting it off in the vintage audio section of Carney's store, the two immediately imagined creating their own line of products. "Philip has a wood shop and we both have collections of classic audio equipment, so we decided to give it a go," Carney says. "I kept looking for a space to do a sound installation for the public to experience, and here we are...doing it!" For 45 days, the two will experiment developing prototypes in a fishbowl-type workshop open to onlookers who can place custom orders. "We already have some designs completed, like a full range paper cone 3" driver in a wood enclosure," says Carney. "But the main reason for using this space is to come up with more ideas."
To create a living landscape for the sound, the space houses furniture from Amsterdam Modern, lamps from Niche Modern, and will host music events programmed by Sumner and Carney. "There will be in-store performances featuring bands and DJs the way they were meant to be heard, through analog equipment," says Carney. The entire project will also be photographed by Ramon Felix, and published into a book that will be designed by Ill Studio in Paris.
Input : Output's grand opening will be this Friday, May 20, from 7-11pm. The event will feature musical selections from special guests David Holmes, Eddie Ruscha, Eug, and Nitedog.
