The Self-Portrait Project



The Self-Portrait Project passed through the Brooklyn Museum at the beginning of the month, using one of the reOrder columns as a backdrop. As described on the project’s website “The Self-Portrait Project is a work-in-progress that seeks to capture the zeitgeist of New York City and beyond. It is essentially a glorified photobooth utilizing a large, two-way mirror, with a camera set up on the transparent side and the participant located on the mirror side. Using a remote trigger & the mirror’s reflection, the participant chooses how and when to shoot him/herself.”

The Nightstands

THE NIGHTSTANDS from PIN–UP on Vimeo.

Along with ten other designers, Situ Studio has created a nightstand for PIN-UP Magazine. The pieces will be displayed in an exhibition at the Phillips de Pury & Company, New York gallery, from May 14-24.

The nightstand is simultaneously a repository for our most banal as well as our most personal of possessions – a sacred text, a sex toy, a prosthetic, a weapon or a clock. These objects, which reside within arm’s reach as we descend into sleep, betray the messy proximity of our values, secrets and needs.
