Points of Reference

I design costumes for Carnival and draw inspiration from far and wide, so I guess this my mood board , not of a specific theme except the themes that catch my eye .

Axel Hoedt:Once A Year 2013

Axel Hoedt’s Once a Year offers a series of photographs of traditional German festival costumes, a sort of project that has become more familiar with the recent work of Charles Freger, Estelle Hanania and Phyllis Galembo. Hoedt’s work falls more inline with Hanania’s approach, yet his take is his own. With a background as a fashion and portrait photographer, Hoedt’s photographs revel in the strangeness of their subject matter. A good fashion photographer isn’t simply looking for beauty, but the moment where clothing transfigures the person wearing it — a transformation perhaps never more powerful than with costume. Photographed against white backdrops or in the streets in both black and white and color, Hoedt’s atmospheric images invite you to look, yet not in the same way documentary images do. In these images it is possible to see something beyond the garment. Momentarily still, Hoedt’s photographs allow us flashes of a centuries old world hidden in the experience of otherness of this once a year tradition.

Forbes: Michael Jordan just became a billionaire
————————————————
You can add another zero to Michael Jordan’s net worth.
According to Forbes, the basketball Hall of Famer, shoe magnate and NBA owner is now the only athlete in the billionaire’s club.
The financial magazine’s estimates show that Jordan crossed the threshold from super rich to insanely wealthy, as his stake in the Charlotte Hornets (isn’t that so much better to read than “Charlotte Bobcats?) recently increased from 80% to 89.5%. Given the 2014 sale prices of the Milwaukee Bucks ($550 million) and Los Angeles Clippers ($2 billion), Forbes now estimates Jordan’s Hornets are worth between $600 million and $625 million.

"I created the Body/Text Project as a means of using technology to explore how traditional media and artistic exploitation of the human form separates thought from flesh. By turning skin into a screen and projecting text onto it, I seek to reunite the intellectual and the physical in an aesthetically bold context. My aim is to render beauty and to celebrate human beings as thinking animals."
 
"Ideally, overlaying this text onto naked human flesh will serve as a reminder that these agreements are vitally important to our very survival. In mythology and classical art, messengers are usually depicted nude or draped only in scant clothing. These models are messengers as well."
