Artist Crush // Megumi Igarashi

As someone who went to an all women’s art college, I have seen my fair share of vagina art. Perhaps a bit too much. However, Megumi Igarashi’s story is very different. Igarashi, who works under the name Rokudenashiko, which means “good-for-nothing girl” in Japanese, built a kayak shaped like her vagina after raising money through […]

POLAR BLADES // END OF BABES

When a cool dude wants to make a film, you should probably listen to what he says and help him make said film. That is what is happening with all around rad guy Jimmy Marble‘s recent effort to raise money to make two little films. You see, Marble is an ace director, photographer, muralist, and […]

OBJECTS WITHOUT MEANING // SPACE15TWENTY

Taking on Miranda July as your muse and model is a risky venture: she easily makes many things look like adult baby clothes but, when in the right context, she can fucking knock out Giselle as if she were born on a catwalk. This is something that NYC label Objects Without Meaning was very privy to […]

THE DEVIL // LITERALLY WEARS GARETH PUGH

Unless you are North West, us plebeians are still digesting the deluge of shows and media coming out of this year’s Fashion Month. Rodarte got a bit shipwrecked with their latest collection, Viktor & Rolf put a vacuum on their clothing, sucking everything to the side, Chanel decorated the feminism soap box, and both Dolce & Gabbana […]

HAIR // A NEW BOOK BY GUIDO PALAU

Hair is a dichotomous thing, a piece of our own living identities while it itself, is quite dead. In Guido Palau’s new book, Hair, he explores its function, pushing the boundaries of what this material can become in the hands of a skilled artist. The images shot by David Sims are both raw and refined, […]

A WORK MAG EXCLUSIVE RELEASE // TREV DESHON vs JAMES BLAKE // RETROGRADE

I remember very distinctively when I first (not only heard but watched) James Blake’s music video for “Retrograde“… I remember thinking, “Damn, this guy knows how to fuck with sound to make you feel like you are part of it.”  Shortly there after I “accidentally” sent a link of it to my EX…whoops.  This song stuck with […]

WHAT WOULD A MOVIE ABOUT A DATE BE LIKE // OK CUPID STYLE

The day has come: a *date* is being made into a movie. Yes, a movie. The story it is based off of is admittedly wild because this “date” involved a couple on their third-ish outing “traveling the world” while wearing the same clothes with almost nothing for twenty-one days. Yes, #whitepeopleproblems. The question: is that date worthy […]
