All posts by Vivian Hua

Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 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). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.

Sóley – Icelandic Musician Interview: Ask The Deep

Adorning the cover of Sóley’s new record, Ask The Deep, is a portrait painted by Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir, with Sóley’s face smeared about like the things of nightmares, like a horror film incarnate. Upon first glance, this visual seems inconsistent with one’s first impressions of Icelandic musician Sóley Stefánsdóttir — but the truth is that Sóley...Read...
