Mac Folkes- I like this guy!

Just read an interview with Mac Folkes on the JC Report.

I wholeheartedly agree with this quote:
"There’s far too much of everything—too many brands, too many seasons, too much fast fashion. I strongly endorse the creed: “We don’t need more things, we need better things.”"

exactly Mac! slow fashion, slow design of all kinds, slow, thoughtful considered living....

I need to remind myself to slooowww dooowwwnnn sometimes.

think I'll go make myself a cup o' tea, perhaps watch an episode of mad men...while making a bracelet...but slowly! I promise! lol

I was in the neighborhood today so I got the chance to check out the installation: Knitting is for Pus*** by fiber artist Olek, at the Christopher Henry Gallery.

In this installation she made a replica of her bedroom, including bringing in some of the actual furniture. The text knitted into the walls etc are random phrases from notes and text messages she's received or sent.
