A number of years ago now - cant even hazard a guess - I saw an exhibition during the Sydney Festival at the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) I was fortunate enough to see an instillation by an artist whom I have since discussed with friends, but never knew the artists name...until today. Do-Ho Suh.

Suh is a Korean artist whom creates large scale sculptures, predominantly, and my favourite out of fabric. I'm not sure what type of fabric, but I guess it is organza. The work I saw was an entire house interior stitched out of blue organza with incredible detail and scale. He had all the details down to light switches, taps, drain pipes, stove top knobs etc. It was epic, incredible and inspiring. Below are some images of his works. The third being from the exhibition I saw.

So things have had a kick start here at MICHAEL HOCKEY HQ. Thanks to our fantastic PR agent Willis Management in Sydney we've had great press come out in the last few weeks. We've also had a celebrity appearance by the charismatic Jason Dundas host of VH1 in the USA. Sporting a not yet released style from our up coming winter collection. The style features a hand worked heel made from truck tyre - very cool - seen here in Forest Green.
Look out for posts to come of press from Mens Style, Shop till you drop, The Good Weekend and the Iconic magazine. All featuring style currently available on and!!!

While researching the new collection (that time again. Once on the roller coaster there is no getting off. I love it!) I looked into stroboscopic photography. Purely by accident, as I was eager to see as many pictures as I could of bullets going through apples and the explosion at different stages. Hence I stumbled across Harold Edgerton, who was a pioneer of using stroboscopic photography while working with photographer Gjon Mili who used this type of photography also. This type of photography used strobe lighting that could flash up to 120 times a second, therefore could capture fast motion photography like bursting balloons etc. This was way back in the 1930's and its still amazing photography. Below are amazing photographs Mili took for Life magazine of Picasso, and iconic images from Edgerton.

Continuing on my love of advertising, I came across this campaign for an art school. Using famous artists as autopsy's. It is super amazing. But I have a request...Frida Kahlo! Keep up the good work MASP.

I love a great campaign. A great campaign gives immediate insight into a brand. It captures the market in a single image, it tells you what the brand stands for, it makes you love or abhor the brand, it shows creative genius or sales orientated marketing.
This lego campaign to me is absolutely genius. Everyone knows lego, its been around forever, so needs no introduction. For this campaign they take famous cartoon characters and mould them down into crude form using the basic block of lego. It engages the audience as you take the challenge of identifying who's who. Its simple, smart, engaging and all these years on - lures me back in to my lego days.
Who's who? My favourite is Ernie and Bert.

On a trip to London in February, my music guru, who introduced me to M.I.A, Santo Gold and the Hermitude, many years ago, introduced me to Twin Shadow. And now I am obsessed, as she guaranteed I would be...very happy when listening to this. Recommended purchase.
