Media Trend and Public Appearance.JPG

Welcome to the department of

MEDIA, TREND & PUBLIC APPEARANCE

A forum for production, exhibition, exchange and dialogue about contemporary practice, trend and work/life paradigms. We are looking to see which definitions hide behind the terms "Art" and "Design" and which skills are inherently "artistic". We take forms from everyday life and bend them to become public events. We investigate labor, public service, design practice, conversational skill, public identity and aesthetic prowess. We catalogue lifestyles. We archive daily life phenomena. We share responsibility between practitioner and viewer. We live by our own design, create our own definitions and enjoy freedom in our occupation. We place a frame around social norms and offer them up for new investigation. We point a finger in a specific direction and request that certain elements be given a closer look. We construct a metaphorical parentheses and we add punctuation. Self Starter. Cottage Industry. Do It Yourself. Be Your Own Boss.
