Diner Journal

22 January 2011

Diner Journal is a quarterly publication of esoteric recipes, food writing, illustration and culture loosely based around a theme. There’s a chicken issue, a Vermont issue (with beautiful cheese cloth pattern endpapers), etc. This magazine is proof that we can still find substance and value in print today. The whole thing feels like a tightrope walk between careful, considered design and a haphazard lovingly sloppy zine aesthetic. The paper stock varies, but is always nice. The illustrations are beautiful. Best of all, it’s three hole punched so you can put it in some nerdy binder. You would.

Issue 11, art directed by Derick Holt

The magazine is affiliated with the Brooklyn restaurant/butcher/shop Marlow & Sons. A lot of the issues (as well as the Marlow & Sons identity) was created by Derick Holt. The latest issue, a rambling collection of “How-to” articles and illustrations, was art directed by August Hefner (who is ALSO great, btw). Buy em up and hold on to them!

Welcome to the second installment of our Captured photo journal series. This time around we’ve teamed up with the brilliant Greg White. I was eager to see what Greg would shoot for this, as the results tend to be fairly raw (as you can see) and Greg’s style is ultra clean and futuristic. For this series we sent Greg a Diana+ Mini.

Thoughts from Greg:

When I received the Diana Mini camera I was surprised at the size and feel of it. I decided to take it with me on a job to Svalbard, Norway. It was great fun shooting a few frames with this camera after using much more technical cameras. However it feels a bit like a toy so I had a few odd looks from passers by when they saw what I was holding up to my eye! The limited options on the camera mean that you are never quite sure of what you are going to get and for me especially, I like to have control over what I am shooting, so this camera seemed somewhat strange. But having seen the results I’m pleasantly surprised and sense that this is what lomography is all about, the fun of inaccuracy, that feeling of not knowing, the anticipation, relief and surprise when the film returns from the lab as well as the added bonuses of happy mistakes!

The feel and look of the images that I shot are really interesting and the cameras tendency to overlap frames and leak light really adds another dimension to the images. It’s almost like having some nice postproduction work done in camera!! I’ll definitely be taking it with me on more occasions to grab shots, especially if they turn out with this aesthetic or something else, who knows?

Special thanks to Lomo for providing the camera and film. Also to Ritz Camera for the processing.

To Whom It May Concern

07 December 2010

To Whom It May Concern: (TWIMC) is an interactive installation which functions as a metaphor for a software application, programmed by Michelle Son, in which the user experience is recreated in a real-time physical space. Having control over the functions and features built into the application, users are invited to step into the programme to explore the features and visual effects by using their sense of smell, touch, sight and sound. Based on the simulated templates of Microsoft Word, users are immersed in a hyper real office environment where the virtual becomes tactile and the template is embellished. Watch the Movie.

Jaunted Haunts Press releases 4 new albums this month. Two from lo-fi-fuzz-master Ampersand. One from improvisational trio Benguela and a reissue of Givan Lötz‘ Easy Now.

Jaunted Haunts Press was founded in 2008 by Righard Kapp, in an effort to formalise the output of his \/#/ cd-r imprint, which in itself was a continuation of where his original One Minute Trolley Dash label left off. Within three years the label’s output has grown to 5 albums, all of which have received considerable acclaim from respected writers such as Richard Haslop and Lloyd Gedye.

The label aims to release music that will stand the test of time, from singular artists who dare to follow their own creative path. Physical releases are packaged in limited edition silkscreened sleeves, while as of late the music is also available in digital format, not so limited edition.
