"All of this childhood iconography is easily translated into Miley’s found-art sculptures. Consisting of a bright neon palette, teddy bears, plastic jewelry, party hats that actually sing (the text on the hat reads, “In your dreams you can buy expensive cars”), party straws and whole heap of glitter and glue, ‘Dirty Hippie’ is being reported as somewhat of a “phoenix rising moment” for Miley Cyrus. But is it really all that shocking that Miley – who’s confessed to being somewhat of a stoned hoarder in this month’s issue of V – would combine a whole bunch of crap together and call it art?"

That one time I wrote about Miley Cyrus’ art collection for Jeremy Scott.


"But what if the way the fashion world operates is now changing to accommodate every marketer’s dream and nightmare: the hashtag? What if seasons were no longer relevant, and the emoji now reigns supreme? What if traditional fashion cycles have now been broken by the whims of a hyper-connected generation?"
— Little piece I wrote for The Vine over this way.

I literally thought this was going to an essay about Lena Dunham’s penchant for almond milk.

While most of us like to believe we’re accomplished multitaskers who can watch TV, tweet, text, and make an omelette all while producing great work, science is always trying to tell us we’re actually underperforming. (Why do we keep inviting Science to the party again?)

Well, two brilliant teenagers in Portland, Oregon, have a research paper that might help put arguments against multitasking to rest. Sarayu Caulfield and Alexandra Ulmer surveyed 403 high-school students and found that some teenagers, about 15 percent of subjects, perform better while working with distraction — e.g., listening to music, texting, tweeting, or emailing — than they do while focusing on a single activity, reports The Wall Street Journal.

Botanical simplicity is at the heart of this collection of paintings by Tasmanian artist Jennifer Tyers. Exploring the landscape and drawing from life help her to capture the essence of her surroundings, “Making landscapes is very interesting, as every time it is a challenge. It somehow seems more ‘pure’ than making works in a studio, or any other kind of work that I have done. Maybe it’s the process, or just being away from everything a studio has in it – books, internet, radio, music, people, objects, stuff I like. You have only yourself, and colours and what you see”. Tyers more recently based in Japan has spent time painting in Singapore’s Botanical Gardens and in Borneo as an artist in residence. See more from the artist here.
