"Permanent Vacation is a Clan. A clan to feel safe, warm and comforted by. Our clan has, just like the Irish clans of the Aran Islands; its own jumper. It is knitted by hand in Ireland by the same skilled knitters that make the Aran sweaters. The unique pattern of the PV Clan Sweater is designed in collaboration with the Irish craftswomen. The PV pattern stands for beauty, friendship and comfort. Our jumper is long and big. It is cool when needed and warm when its wearer needs warmth."

Beautifully arranged photographs by Maurice Scheltens from her editorial work. I also love the play on commercial photography in her personal work.

These are my two favorite photos right now. I can't remember where I found them.

SOFIA HULT√ČNPoints in a Room Condensing Objects of increasing size are placed inside one another, beginning with a ball bearing (2 x 2 x 2mm) and ending with a cupboard (120 x 110 x 50 cm) which then contains all the objects.






Mutual Annihilation
An old and battered chest of drawers is restored to its presumed original state. Paint is removed, broken parts are repaired, the chest is polished and handles are added. The process is then reversed, actions are performed which could have caused the found state. The chest is painted, then treated with various tools, paint is splashed on, it is scraped and hammered, until it as closely resembles the found old state as possible. The process of restoration and aging is recorded on video, and presented with the object.

Beautiful simple compositions.




P.S. Michael was my T/A for a freshmen level class I took at CCA.
