The Self Evident Truths Project aka iO Tillett Wright visited Portland yesterday in the quest to photograph absolutely anyone and everyone who falls on the LGBTQ spectrum in any way. Here’s one now, beaming away. Follow them around the country and see if they’re stopping in your town soon.
Lowell is our new favorite spot in Portland. Buy a trinket for your altar and cloak your shoulders in a storied, kinesthetically-fulfilling textile from far yonder. Maya and Dino are the purveyors, curators and charmers at Lowell — stop in and see them some time.
This prescription for a life lived all top down and outside the yellow lines made its way into a mezzanine drawer at Ace Hotel Portland and was found by an unsuspecting individual in need of some advice. The exact provenance is something of a mystery — though we believe the 5-step program, if not the transcription, to be the sage advice of a person six years of age, named Lucien. The Advice From Lucien Poster is our first in a series we’re creating in-house and with some of our favorite artists and young philosophers. It’s screenprinted in Portland on 250 gsm stone blue paper in a limited edition of 150. The word so far is it can really help out your life-living game.
Martie Kilmer, founder of Portland’s Space Design, has an eye for flora and a knack for designing living spaces that cater to all of the physical and discarnate attributes of planthood. It may be innate or a product of her upbringing, bouncing between the Alaskan tundra and the amber hues of Sedona, or her globe-spanning pursuit of the edenic and unusual. Randall Garcia shot this step-by-step video DIY by Martie on the art of terrariums.
Our good friend Lyndsey Lee Denyer opens her first solo show in Portland tonight at Sohitek Records. In Lyndsey’s words Peregrination — Collage Ramblings is “less concerned with the final product… focusing on mediation through practice.” We love the final product though. Lyndsey also releases the latest installation from her zine series made with partner Marc Faulkner. Hope we see you there Portland.
