All posts by Vivian Hua

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.

Finding Sacred Geometries In A Butt.

San Francisco-based artist Justin Lovato creates geometrically-driven works stemming from any number of esoteric influences and symbolism pulled from mathematical, pattern-based sources. Though Lovato says that his art is framed by “open-ended” symbolism, he describes his personal mythology and conceptual inspiration, saying, “I think [my artwork] represents big questions or ideas emerging from the surface...Read...

Contest: Win A Prize Pack For Hanna!

REDEFINE is pleased to announce we are giving away this prize pack for Hanna, which opened nationally in theatres earlier this month. “Adapt or die!!!” reads the tagline for the film, and one can’t accuse Hollywood of not being dramatic enough in this action thriller involving a young girl raised to be the perfect assassin....Read...

Agnes Obel – Philharmonics Album Review

Thanks to sustaining crisp production throughout her latest record, Philharmonics, Agnes Obel sounds like a faerie whispering sweet nothings — and occasional sour musings — into your ear. Philharmonics is pleasant enough, but more than that, it’s patient — trumping along in a way that savors its own angelic purity, without all the trappings of...Read...

Diego Garcia – Laura Album Review

As the former frontman for New York-based indie band Elefant, Diego Garcia is a singer-songwriter one will either love or hate. On his latest disc, Laura, his lyrics are not particularly noteworthy, but the overall musical atmosphere certainly is. Album standouts like the sultry “Roses & Wine” and the Spanish-guitar-laden “Inside My Heart” have immediate...Read...

De Oro, Indeed! A Video With LNY.

Just wanted to share this small documentary by LNY, which takes video of everyday life in Cuenca, Ecuador, and what it looks like interspersed with images of LNY’s work. It shows, in a quite literal fashion, the figures and events which helped inspire his not-as-literal street art pieces. New color in an already colorful landscape.

Colourmusic – “Tog” Music Video

Do these concertogers look a little bit like your average Seattlite at an indie rock concert? Bored out of their minds? Glassy-eyed and yawning while pretending to stay focused? Perhaps… Apparently, though, according to Colourmusic, the key is to douse a crowd with ketchup, or smatter an onion into their eyeballs, and then everything will...Read...

Screaming Females – “Wild” Animated Music Video

To go along with Screaming Females’ community-based concept, DoodleDrag is this DIY animated film for “Wild.” Black-and-white drawings provide the backdrop as a kooky photography-based figure, reminiscent of Bert from Sesame Street joining faces with Homer Simpson, takes center stage. Artwork and animation by Tiffany Cheng and Michael Topley.

YAWN – “Kind Of Guy” Music Video

This groovy YAWN video somehow has 11.2K views and probably doesn’t need our journalistic help whatsoever, buuuuut it needs to be written about anyway. For starters, the video tells you to: “give into the trance,” to “not be afraid,” to, “focus on the experience,” and beyond it all, they somehow managed to get a Vimeo...Read...

El Boy Die – “Dead Kings” Music Video

Unfortunately, El Boy Die’s 2010 release, Black Hawk Ladies And Tambourins, slipped any kind of major coverage on REDEFINE, but this video for “Dead Kings” will have to serve as a primer. A video collage of grainy archival war footage, the sights are incredible but haunting — showing mushroom clouds silencing soldiers to the point...Read...
