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.

OriginalStyle at Hellion Gallery

Last year’s romp into Portland’s First Thursday Art Walk yielded only a couple notable things. The best of them all, though, was Tokyo’s OriginalStyle at Hellion Gallery. He documents his favorite skate spots around Tokyo, and overlays acrylic type on intricately-drawn backdrops, but in a way that doesn’t feel trite or forced. OriginalStyle isn’t incorporating...Read...

La Femme – Le Podium 1 EP Album Review

A lean little 4-track EP, Le Podium #1 is a workout routine in La Femme’s ability to genre-hop. EP opener, “Sur La Planche,” boasts French lyrics that translate to, “On a surf board /On the beach, on the wave, I’m searching for sensations /On a surfboard, in the tubes, I’m searching for sensations/ You better...Read...

Dignan Porch – Tendrils Album Cover Review & Philippa Bloomfield Interview

Dignan Porch drummer, Philippa Bloomfield, is the designer behind this strange concoction. The photograph is pulled from the childhood photo albums of Bloomfield’s mother, and it shows her mother in a school play at the age of eleven. The people seem bite-sized, and the degraded film quality hints at passed time. “The album has a...Read...

Rake Hands & Skin Drawings.

Lynn Palewicz has quite specific visions for her artwork, which is generally based around sculpture — or, in this case, using the human form as sculpture — and photography. This series of skin drawings is astounding, and it’s a wonder inking and body art aren’t taken to this level more often.

X-Ray Press – UVB-76 Album Review

Since 1982, a shortwave radio station in Russia has been transmitting the same short, monotonous buzz tone at the rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, just about 24 hours a day, every day. That station, UVB-76, has since been nicknamed “The Buzzer,” for obvious reasons. According to Wikipedia, the actual purpose of the station...Read...

Victim of American Fear (Inspired by Oscar Grant)

Just wanted to share a painting done by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, of Oscar Grant. This is what Fazlalizadeh had to say about the piece, and about Grant, in general: “This painting is my reaction to the Johannes Mehrsele, a former BART officer, verdict and sentencing in the case of him fatally shooting Oscar Grant, an unarmed...Read...

Freelance Whale – Enzymes Music Video

To quote Green Label Sound: “In this video for Freelance Whales’ Green Label Sound single “Enzymes,” the band drifts in and out like shadows amongst the colors. The abstract lyrics called for a video loaded with special effects to mirror the song’s metaphorical richness. Co-directors Chunwoo Kae and Ryan Demler of Neue Films created a...Read...
