London in 35

London in 35

Cities are all too often reduced to icons: yellow taxi New York boulevards, pretty Paris cafés, Belfast bombs. Our friend, model and artist Eva Manticova, photographs her current hometown with an eye for imperfection and contradiction, and in the process reveals the rich, nuanced texture of the real London. We interviewed her several months back about […]

Photography: Yann Faucher

Photography: Yann Faucher

Yann Faucher is the kind of uncompromising, unyielding artist that seems to come along less and less frequently.

It was today’s design and financial powerhouse in […]

20Y HORT

20Y HORT

This year, our friends and Human Being Journal alumni HORT turn twenty. That’s the big two-oh—two decades that the venerable Berlin outfit have been pushing creative buttons, stretching the limits of collaborative process and just creating straight stellar work. HORT is marking the occasion with an exhibition, 20Y HORT, at KK Outlet in east London. Rather than career-spanning retrospective, the show […]

For all its arcane mystique, whiz-bang equipment, and general air of omnipotence, the culture of science is nonetheless a pretty unsexy beast.
