In late october 2012, I was invited by the ACNE Studios Store on 33 Greene Street in NYC, to partake and help the employees produce the visuals, on an in-house competition between all the ACNE stores in the world. The assignment was to design and pitch a new pair of concept jeans over the classic ACNE fit “MAX”. The winning concept jeans would be produced in the up and coming collection.
To make a long story short; The MAX WITT concept by the employess in the 33 greene Street store WON!!!

In the 10th month of the year 2012, I was heading to Florida to work for 9 days. I decided to dig out my old beautiful Polaroid Land Camera 195, defrost some old Fuji Polaroids and shoot 2-3 polaroids every morning when we arrived at the location of the day.
For your viewing pleasure; Un-retouched, Un-colorcorrected, just scanned, as is, raw and beautiful. No filter, just the way every single piece of emulsion chose to react with all the flaws, air-bubbles, scratches, weird colors and dreamy mood.
"When the everyday just can’t compete, the beauty of a polaroid" -Eistrup.
"Visual artist Ann Hamilton combines the ephemeral presence of time with the material tactility for which she is best known to create a new large-scale installation for the Wade Thompson Drill Hall. Commissioned by the Armory, the event of a thread references the building’s architecture, as well as the individual encounters and congregational gatherings that have animated its rich social history. A multisensory affair, the work draws together readings, sound, and live events within a field of swings that together invite visitors to connect to the action of each other and the work itself, illuminating the experience of the singular and collective body, the relationship between the animal and the human. The address of the readers to the pigeons shifts at the end of each day, when a vocalist on the drill hall’s balcony serenades their release to flight. Each day’s song is cut with a record lathe, and the resulting recording is played back the next day.”
