GET YOURS NOW - Early-bird tickets now available via the link in bio. . This year’s theme ‘TRUTH’ will have our speakers answer some powerful questions around today’s state of the industry and the tools we have as creators - What does the truth mean beyond our immediate environment? How might we scale the power of design to a truly global level, instilling positive change in areas we didn’t think it could touch? How can we overcome those forces that seek to blur the line between certainty and truth? . Stay tuned for more speaker, workshop and activation announcements #SPSyd19

Mark Maggiori ( @markmaggiori ) may have missed the golden era of the lone-cowboy, but has brought his mythology back to life via rich and deeply technical paintings; works that portray and exaggerate the challenges, triumphs and miniature of American life on a raw canvas. In just under four years, his pieces have taken the art-world by (hand-painted) storm. And from a residence in Los Angeles, he tells us why. . Link in bio for the full article.
Not just this year’s best revenge film, Panos Cosmatos’ “Mandy” is a bubble-bath for the senses; a miasmic fever-dream of saturated colours, textures and lens flares that draws you deep into its mystic world.

There are at least 673 people in the world that have this Pointy Tooth Bear symbol tattooed on their body… we know… When we hosted The Panic Office, a retrospective of @stanleydonwood and Radiohead’s visual archive, in which guests moved through a circular fortress listening to a bespoke unreleased soundscape by #ThomYorke and past 2,000+ pieces of art towards a central room, we asked people to submit photos of their body-art - which was hung on a shrine of worship to the bear. Creepy shit. . . . #PointyToothBear #Radiohead #ThePanicOffice
When we started working on The Panic Office with @stanleydonwood we always knew we’d be sharing ideas, if not directly, but indirectly with the band behind the art, @radiohead. The thing we could never 100% count on was their involvement. It wasn’t until the first few walls were being raised into position that we got word that #ThomYorke would be contributing a bespoke, unreleased soundscape built upon 3 layers of speakers - subs, mids and highs - that when you walked towards the centre of the installation, you collected all the rings and heard a complete track - and the kicker, no 1 minute of music over the 2 weeks was the same as another. . . . #ThePanicOffice @carriageworks #VividSydney @dropbox
