Vivian Hua (華婷婷) is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine as well as a master of globetrotting for free and evading 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Marshmallows – while not really food – are one of her favorite foods, especially if they are freezered, stale, or fire-toasted. She doesn’t want to space travel, really, which is an unpopular view these days. Her design work, astrological chart, and other crap can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net.

Summer Heat / Zommerhitte (2008) Film Review

A generally...Read...

Savage Grace (2007) Film Review

Savage Grace is a tale about the incestuous relationship of a mother and her homosexual son. The entire film is an ever-deepening downwards spiral that is disturbing to watch. Yet, like a car accident, the viewer cannot help but be interested by the dysfunction; it’s twisted to watch, but it’s interesting. Savage Grace is a...Read...

Alone in Four Walls / Allein in vier Wanden (2007) Film Review

Alone in Four Walls is a beautifully-shot look at youths who spend their time in reformatory facilities for youngsters between the ages up to the age of the fourteen. Husband and wife duo Alexandra Westmeier and Inigo Westmeier have managed to capture the stories of a population largely unknown to the world. Most of the...Read...

Victimless Jacket at MoMA… ew?

Uhhhh. This jacket, shown at the MoMA, was made of stem cells from mice and was fed nutrients. It died after five days due to some complication (they had to pull the plug). Yes, it is alive. Or I guess I should say WAS. Since it’s dead. More details here.
