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.

Simple Shapes From Matthew Penkala

Cleveland artist Matthew Penkala paints images as seen through a visually-impaired haze. The impressive portion here lies in the presence of both incredible simplicity and detail; capturing diffused light is a bit more difficult than it might seem, particularly on canvasses that range from 24″ squares to 60″ squares!

Sprawling Structures Of Manmade Fantasy, By John Borowicz

These hypothetical structures are a combination of M.C. Escher, Mayan temples, labryinths, and 3-dimensional city maps; they’re a veritable Where’s Waldo of trip-outs for the eyeballs. Here’s what artist John Borowicz had to say about the series: “… the inspiration for the series probably came about from drawing with my oldest son who is now...Read...

My Disco – Little Joy Album Review

If you’re expecting a traditional dance party from Australia’s My Disco, you’re expecting wrong. My Disco takes the tasteful, throbbing repetition used so well by bands like Clinic — or more recently, Suuns — and amps up the percussive elements tenfold, while deconstructing the songwriting into minimal bits. My Disco is the drum circle, Psychic...Read...

And rightly so; these are the best of the best, and the images you see were hand-picked by photographer Dave Mead, just...Read...

Akron/Family – “Silly Bears” Music Video

The album itself is quite enough of a departure from the band’s previous works, but the videos are really something else. This new video for “Silly Bears” is a psychedelic stop-motion affair through outerspace, starring...Read...
