TELFAR FW17 OST – What People?

Original soundtrack composed for Telfar‘s FW17 presentation
In collaboration with Ryan Trecartin (Narration) and Babak Radboy (Artistic Direction)

…And the award for most time-travel-friendly, culturally adaptable, contextually annoyed, unisex specific, panic-onomical, worn equally by both offense and defense — goes to: TELFAR. Fill in the fucking blank. Meaning is in the eye of the beholder; and it’s a responsibility. Fill in the fucking blank.
— Ryan Trecartin, TELFAR F/W 2017

TELFAR F/W 2017 continues the designer’s starkly original, trend-agnostic, anti-identitarian, deconstruction of garments and their meanings. This season the body’s meridians are fault lines in which not only colors and fabric — but entire genres of garment can give-way to another: creating hybrid forms like puffer-peacoats; track-jacket-dress-shirts, wool-slack-pum-pum-shorts and cargo-knickers. A jewel-tone palette in nylon, knit, wool, cotton, fleece and denim appear at times all in a single garment, creating a total-look that is impossible to place. Somewhere between Patagonia and Shenzhen TELFAR continues to visualize an empty horizon in a fashion industry where more and more people, crowd an ever narrowing aesthetic consensus. 2017 is a good year not to fit in.

A distracted path toward extinction

 

There’s a word I’m trying to remember, for a feeling I’m about to have
(a distracted path toward extinction) 

BB9_Korakrit_Arunanondchai_Alex_Gvojic_16

Premiered at the 9th Annual Berlin Biennale, 2016
On a Boat sailing up and down the Spree River, Berlin

Audio and Video samples available on request

Korakrit Arunanondchai and Alex Gvojic have created a site-specific video installation on the Blue-Star sightseeing boat of Reederei Riedel, the Berlin Biennale’s only itinerant venue, that travels up and down the Spree River throughout the period of the exhibition. The boat’s exterior décor includes images of a giant rat hugging Arunanondchai’s grandfather, in reference to the film shown on board, There’s a word I’m trying to remember, for a feeling I’m about to have (a distracted path towards extinction). Inspired by previous large-scale extinctions in the history of the earth and the likelihood of the next, human extinction as well as the event of Arunanondchai’s older brother getting married, the film uses multiple narrative threads to frame a relationship between being alive today and the collapse of the natural systems around us. In addition to the video, an audio guide made in collaboration with the music producer Aaron David Ross and boychild accompanies passengers as they experience the main route frequented by tour boats on the Spree, passing Museum Island and the city’s government district. During the running time of the Berlin Biennale from June 4 to September 18, 2016, events and performances take place on the upper deck of the boat every Saturday evening.

Renotopia – by Dis Magazine

The Island (KEN) is a hybrid of the (social) kitchen and the (private) bath, a complex network of resources (water, food, energy, data), and a reflection on how we process resources and turn them into aesthetic ideology. It’s a smart island, but it also teaches. Aside from shower demos, The Island (KEN) holds talks on digital consciousness, renovation, procrastination, data obscurity, Pinterest, and more.
