Why so serious Hayden Cox? You’ve got a beer in your hand, you designed a range of surfboards for @alexanderwangny, you’ve just released a range of wearable tap-and-go accessories and you’re standing within the walls of The Panic Office (our @stanleydonwood and @radiohead artwork retrospective)? . . . Thanks to the brains @daniellecox__ @haydenshapes #tb SP Sydney 2015
“The specificity of what plants you pick or the types of landscape you choose to depict all comes with baggage, but it exists outside of human culture whether we decide to draw it or not.”… Spec-a-what? I’m glad you got a grip on this ‘stuff’ Jonathan. . . . We love @zawhatthe #SPsyd18 @markpritch
"I'm more excited than ever about the nature of my work. I feel that I'm an honest filmmaker, who, in every film I've made, even when I was compromised by finances or by producers or this or that, I always chose a subject I wanted to do and made the best of it. I find myself at this point in time, ironically enough, with the most passionate issues of my life, which have always been war and peace, survival, how to live, what a man or a woman is. How you deal with your soul. These are the big questions for me. The daily questions.” When we interviewed Oliver Stone backstage in 2017, he grabbed the 3 pages of questions, read them and delivered a 27-min monologue answering every single question in one go - That’s why he gets paid the big bucks. . . . #OliverStone #JFK #Snowden #Scarface #Platoon #MidnightExpress #BornOnTheForthOfJuly #Nixon #Sydney #SPSyd17
“I’m like this omnipotent God creating the scene at will. When I have the headset on I am fully immersed in the environment and I can pull and push the elements to wherever I want them” @jamesjeanart x @sharnispencer of @ausballet “I was so excited to explore this type of creative process. As a dancer, this technology and collaboration is not something you normally do”.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Our Tilt Brush collaboration also with @kho__ @akinatelier and @luke_Lucas #TiltBrush #Google #SPSyd17⠀
@hedislimane has just released his debut product as Artistic and Creative Director for @celine - the ‘16’ - with its name derived from the brand’s headquarters and atelier in a 17th-century mansion at 16 Rue Vivienne - which we’ll also use as an excuse to relook at his cover of #joaquinphoenix for @interviewmag
When you wish things were digital (so you can get them quicker) and then settle into looking forward to appreciating print. The next issue of @the_gentlewoman will feature Belgian-born French film director, photographer and artist Agnes Varda, thanks to @pennyjanemartin @alastairmckimm and team / #agnesvarda
“I asked Mia to stay in the water a few moments longer, even though we had already been filming for a half hour. I wore a wetsuit while she simply had underwear and a thin top on. It wasn’t until we both walked back to our towels some time later, that I realised her skin was now blue from the cold. Not once did she even mention it.” said @bartcelestino of his collaborative partner @mia_wasikowska_ who waded into the winter water at Bronte in front of @stefanduscio for their film A Romance of Many Dimensions, that we screened at #SPSyd2016 . . . #MiaWasikowska @carriageworks
Australian twin directors Jonathan and Josh Baker are staring down the barrel of time. Their story is dense and complex; a relationship so intertwined with its output that its impossible to consider one without the other. And as the pair face their biggest project yet — the big-budget directorial feature debut of @kin (out next week) all cards are on the table. Earlier this year, Semi Permanent founder Murray Bell interviewed the pair from their L.A studio to capture the moment before everything changes. You can read the feature now via the link in bio or on semipermanent.com @redbikebluebike
