NOT everyone in the fashion world understands DIS Magazine. But for a self-described online “post-Internet lifestyle magazine” that gets its name from an oppositional prefix, that is to be not only expected but perhaps even intended.

http://www.metahaven.net/Site/Metahaven.html

Founded by Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden in 2007 as a design and research studio, Metahaven has come to define a new methodology in graphic design. The studio’s speculative practice privileges the vocabulary of graphic design as a means of knowledge production, using it as a tool to analyze organizational models and power structures. Investigating political and economic design—including nation branding and logo production—in relation to statehood, currency and information networks, Metahaven places particular emphasis on transparency and visibility.

We live in our phones although we sometimes occupy space beside other people. The telephone is our closest ally, the mediator between the present and our projection of the present. It is in some ways a portal to our dreams. It can be a portal to hell if used properly.

http://olgabalema.com/

Olga Balema’s work investigates the fragility of matter and its contamination by forms of digital and technological production, which underlines the instability and displacement of its physical presence. The immateriality of this process of translation is questioned through the evidence of organic feelings in everyday objects. Balema’s recent solo show at Galerie Fons Welters in Amsterdam features extended latex arms that sag unnaturally in the gallery space. As inorganic surrogates, their bodily alienation is subjected to a state of tension between animate and inanimate, human and inhuman. Balema (Ukraine, 1984) often uses industrial products in her work: leggings and t-shirts with decorative prints of mistranslated texts become sculptural presences, rusty steel chunks and fragmented buckets are reassembled into fountains. Language is altered for decorative purpose with reference to pop culture and its modification in social networks. The rust in the fountains changes the color of the water and the status of the printed textiles soaked in it. Their texts, already corrupted in meaning, are also destined for physical deterioration.

Interview: Alex Da Corte
STORY BY: ALEX FRANK
Philadelphia artist Alex Da Corte loves taking pop products into far-off places and different media, from video and sculpture to photography and painting. Much of what he makes has the synthetic sheen of cheap capitalism, combining inexpensive products from 99-cent shops and WalMart.http://www.thefader.com/2012/08/30/interview-alex-da-corte/
