Of course I’ve seen him in my dreams..
“In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.
That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist’s desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.
The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.”
Fuck, I guess 1994 was a long time ago. Anyway, Vice celebrates 15 years in their new issue
A friend sent me a link to Wonderwall’s website today, and I was amazed by the interiors they have designed. Founded by Masamichi Katayama in 2000, the Japanese interior design firm is most known for their retail design (those who have been in Soho’s Uniqlo, that’s them) but, they do dabble in architecture and product design as well. All of it is so sleek.

Back in 2006, Marc Quinn created this portrait of himself out of his own frozen blood that he had been collecting for a period of 5 months. He plans on repeating the process ever 5 years to record his aging, so expect another aged version in 2011. The portrait is also in an edition of 59 pigment prints on gesso coated aluminum, that are available through Paragon Press.
Perfect for the morning when you wake up hungover and all that’s left is warm beer, the internet and luckily enough, ice in the freezer (it all happens!). The video is a bit infomercial but, how else are you going to learn?

This might be making its rounds on the internet but, damn is it intense. This man records himself being buried in an avalanche, which must be scary as hell!
