A look through issue 19 of the THING Quarterly. The Travel Wallet designed by Matt Singer is worth the price alone.
“A modern Miami adaptation of the 1962 French short film ‘La Jetee’, the film recounts Luke’s (Uncle Luke, legendary rapper from the hip-hop group 2 Live Crew) rise to fame as he changes the face of hip-hop and fights for first amendment rights, and later as he ushers Miami into a golden era of peace and prosperity as Mayor.

Directed by visual and performance artist Jillian Mayer, the entire movie takes place in custom built installations which distort and play with visual perspectives.”
