Yes, Anastasia [Superqueen]
"The shape of Kristina is reminiscent of the infamous Yves Saint Laurent Cocoon wedding dress, and the scale-like gold satin, with those black appliques as decorations, bring the Fabergé Imperial eggs to my mind."
Access to News Wildly Unequal in U.S. [Washington Post]
Walter Isaacson, President of the Aspen Institute and a former Time managing editor: "Nations that will succeed in the 21st century are those in which citizenry has access to the free flow of information."
"The particular vision of the London Orchard Project is to create mini-orchards across London, thereby developing communities’ access to local food now and in the future; contributing to carbon absorption; reducing the carbon footprint of fruit consumed in London and supporting biodiversity conservation."
And one of the first films I ever made (!):
The Late Show on 8vo Design [Cerysmatic Factory]
"BBC2's The Late Show, 1990; this was a ten minute manifesto/profile of
8vo Design. They were approached by the BBC to do a piece about English
type-based graphics and it developed from there. It was organised
around a series of statements/themes such as 'Simplify Design', 'Design
Not Craft' and these were introduced by titles (designed by 8vo) and
film of the 8vo designers themselves speaking the statements in a
layered glass stage set. This was interspersed with shots of 8vo's work (such as Haçienda 4, and Haç 7) and footage of them talking about their work."
