The Unraveled Thread
All-Over Prints
Wearing any bit of fabric always means carrying a bit of history on you shoulders or on top of your head. Fashion reveals the state of culture, religion and politics. For individuals it always means having made a choice between this and that indicating something about their persona even if it’s superficial. And anti-fashion? That’s a fashion statement too. The Unraveled Thread takes apart one fashion element at a time to reveal its history and present meaning.

The Fine Line
»While you’re fucking some dusty old chair, I’ll be eating bananas «
The Fine Line« takes one lyric, a song fragment or a small lyrical impulse to to discover a story, learn more about an artist, their song or music in general. We take a thought and try to understand its origin and meaning. Sometimes just one vague anecdote or association will be explored other times this small line can take us much further: to heights and depths that might be hiding entire, unexpected worlds. It’s a fine line

Our »crucial question« might not be so absolute but it will uncover one aspect with one photograph. No frills. Just one question.
