Chicago Model City

Rapid growth, innovative design, and a diverse population helped make Chicago a symbol of the modern city. Beyond this, Chicago became a model a means of understanding cities and citizens everywhere. This exhibition explores Chicago’s role as a model for city-building. text-CAF web-site

The Interdisciplinary Arts Department’s unique curriculum urges students to cross pollinate with a number of art disciplines in order to come up with new and unexpected art forms. Tele-portraiture, sacred geometry, and a transformable environment are all a part of the visual, aural, and consequential mix provided in this exceptional and thoughtful exhibition. - written by Jeanine Mellinger

Barneys GANT event & CS Mens book party

The Barneys GANT event consisted of 50 people & bad Hors d'oeuvres - A.M.B was trying to be a model, W.G.E. was trying to pick up the cater waiter & I was trying to figure out how to pay for the $1800 balenciaga winter coat. W.G.E & I attended the CS Mens Book Party at Nordstrom 2 days later. This party is usually the event of the fall season for mens fashion in Chicago; sad but true. This year the clothes were boring, the same dull bad walking models & really poor attendance. Q.Whats happening with Fashion in Chicago?

-fucking-lutly NOTHING!

This is my video blog site

I like to make video art.
Sometimes I just like to take videos with my friends & the situations we are in.
There is no fancy editing, no art really involved, just fun; hella fun!
