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.

Our Children – À Perdre La Raison Film Review – Belgium, 2013

At the start of Our Children, a young couple frolicks about, madly in love, over-the-top saccharine, full of wordless smiles and child-like naivete. Soon, an elderly doctor, clearly a father-figure in the young man’s life, appears. He warns the young man against a serious relationship with the young woman, citing the cultural difference of her...Read...

Wolf Eyes – No Answer: Lower Floors Album Review

Wolf Eyes No Answer: Lower Floors De Stijl (2013) In their rather prolific career, Wolf Eyes have developed a near-cult following in those who want something louder and more abrasive, yet don’t have the energy for hardcore nor the patience for Merzbow records. They inhabit a very specific alcove in the world of independent music,...Read...

Frank Correa Photographer Interview: Color-Drenched Urban Fantasies // Entrevista con el Fotógrafo Frank Correa: Fantasias Urbanas Saturadas de Color

"I just kind of go and feel it out – what looks good, the chemistry, so that everything’s just kind of organic, spontaneous, in the moment." /// "Simplemente llego y me guio por lo que siento – que es lo que se ve bien, la química, de esta manera todo es simplemente así como orgánico,...

Julian Lynch – Gloves Music Video

In Julian Lynch’s music video for “Gloves”, bizarre idea after bizarre idea is executed in fairly mundane settings. All of it might be a bit harder to swallow or a bit more trite if the video were just slightly more static — but its glittery lighting brilliance and creeping zoom shots somehow make its awkwardness...Read...

ERAAS – “Crescent” / “Ghost” Music Videos

The music video for “Crescent” is a bizarre piece of work, minimal and almost Lynchian in feel, without much going on save for slow movements and small textural or geometric changes. Directed by Nick Criscuolo, it opens with what look like paintings roaring, like unbridled fires, to be followed by the slow morphing between some...Read...

Xander Harris – Night Fortress Music Video

From its wavy slow-motion intro alone, one can tell that the music video for Xander Harris’ “Night Fortress” is bound to be a rainbow-colored adventure into bizarre costumes and texture-melting acid trip territory. The best part, though, is that it’s not walls or environments melting here — that would be too boring — but rather,...Read...
