Confessions From Sin City

Confessions From Sin City

Always loving the work of Candy Chang, which successfully relies on audience involvement. New work Confessions from Vegas. Some of the confessions are hilarious  - "Your name is tattoed on my ass"(so the other person doesn't know?). Some are heartbreaking - "I still love her. 2 girlfriends and 5 years later."

I particularly like the electoral-style confession booths.

McCann's Truth about Youth

Just read McCann's Truth about Youth.

"Once upon a time, teenagers had a small group of friends (typically 4-7 people), and these were often met through school. Within this group young people could express their individuality, but it was vital that they belonged to the group. However, nowadays things are more complex. Using social media, a typical teenager is likely to manage maintain multiple, intersecting groups of friends. In this sense, 'connecting' to a broader network of friends has replaced the singular need to 'belong' to a tight-knit group of friends."

It thought this is was interesting because I agree and disagree with this. Maybe because I have long past the teenage phase. I still think that most people have the need to belong with a small group of friends, and I think that will always be true to the human condition.

However, I know that I do have multiple groups of friends – friends that I connect with for different purposes – ones that I can go to festivals with, or who I can depend on for relationship advice, or ones that I would never call but would comment on their Facebook status.

Friends specialisation?

My Hung fabrics

Finally, it's here! After months of working on the site (I coded, designed and photographyed the entire thing myself!), the My Hung fabrics website is now up and running. You may remember some photographs I posted up earlier in the year.

Learnt lots about web development, and know now for sure that it is not my thing. Let's just say no one should be using Internet Explorer because it just fucks everything up.

A photo rejected by a client for a poster that I've been working on. Although I particularly like it.
