"I dreamed a thousand new paths. I woke and walked my old one."
Faceless Busts, Jon Rafman"The real reason to see Robocop then, is to support the work of one of our favorite artists, Jon Rafman, whose  faceless busts  (seen above), which are part of his ongoing New Age Demanded project, show up in the movie. The triptych appears in the office of a villainous CEO played by Michael Keaton, and can be seen several times throughout the film’s 100-minute running time. The Montreal-based Rafman, who first blew up thanks to his much-discussed Google Street View project, is one of the most exciting young artists working today, recontextualizing cultural ephemera to explore the relationship between technology and memory–a perfect fit for a movie about a robot who was once a man.”http://bullettmedia.com

The Japanese Black From the prefectures Kobe and Gunda comes the Kuroge cattle, better known as  Wagyu. With its signature marbling and 50% more saturated fats than regular beef the ancient race is worshipped by meat lovers all over the world. For decades the meat that comes in 15 different quality classifications was only exported to North America and Hong Kong. Since July it’s now also available in Switzerland, imported by the young gourmet entrepreneurs of Luma Delikatessen. The 1980s Japanese Food and Culture Program featuring must-see Nicholas Pettas, a former Greek-Danish karateka, gives an outstanding introduction into the fascinating world of Wagyu beef. Now, place your order and heat up the table-top grill.Image by Harry Griffin and Eva O’Leary. http://luma-delikatessen.chhttp://youtu.be/94HhDl1Fk6w

FKA twigsAfter Dazed & Confused recently promoted her latest video loudly and my SoundCloud stream won’t stop bringing her songs up, I feel it’s about time: “Tahliah Barnett (born 16 January 1988), better known as FKA twigs, is a British musician and dancer originally from Gloucestershire and currently based in London. The “FKA” stands for Formerly Known As. She has Jamaican and Spanish ancestry.” So much for the encyclopedia facts. What’s to add? Well, her music is simply outstanding and must be heard.http://wwwater.me

Memento by Geraldine Spilker"French-German design student Geraldine Spilker has developed a process of binding ashes with resin, creating a tactile object from cremated remains. The object is completely biodegradable, so the remains can be returned to the earth when the family is ready.” Dezeenhttp://geraldinespilker.com

The Northern ConnectionOur Legacy rolls out collection after collection of great men’s wear - well designed,   beautifully manufactured and good looking shoes, jeans, pants, shirts, sweaters, jackets and coats. Messrs Christopher Nying and Jockum Hallin, the founder of the label, started in 2005 with a small range of fitted t-shirts and then expanded their doing from there. The brand’s success is rooted in the tailored fit and versatility of its garments. And then there is the fruitful cooperation with the boys of Très Bien Shop - basically their neighbors. Trés Bien was founded just shortly after Our Legacy in 2006 by brothers Simon and Hannes Hogeman together with childhood friends Björn Lindén and Jakob Törnberg and significantly helped to establish the young fashion brand. Once again the North looks like one of the stronger engines of innovation in men’s fashion.http://www.ourlegacy.sehttp://tres-bien.com

MarmorealCurator Brent Dzekciorius and Design-prodigy Max Lamb teamed up and created a multi-use stone called 'Marmoreal' as well as a striking six-pieces series of furniture. Yes, it’s nothing new, it’s Terrazzo Project-inspired and Shiro Kuramata (second image) did something similar in the 1980s, but they also came up with a handcrafted, well-presented story and a simply stunning webpage realization. But see for yourself:http://www.dzekdzekdzek.com
