The heat keeps getting turned up everyday between Apple & Flash (Adobe). The photo above is a taken from a neutral’s point of view, but if you compare the two Apple & Flash photos, you’ll figure out what this is all about.
For all of you who missed out on this little gig…shame! Vitamin Water & The Street hosted a banging party in Parkhurst at the new pop-up store. So you walked in for FREE….the hostesses gave you colourful clothes pegs, and tells you to proceed to the bar, where you can get FREE drinks for the entire night. From then on in it was all down hill. Room after room, door after door with all sorts of crazy stuff is going on (people getting dressed & undressed getting ready for their 15 minutes of fame. Once you were done in that room you decide that it’s time to get your mack on, there is an outside area with bean bags, sofa’s, beautiful people. Then all of a sudden, people start walking down a catwalk!! BOOM a fashion show.
Francois Robert spent hundreds of hours arranging the real bones of a single human skeleton into a series of striking iconic shapes, each five or six feet wide. He titled the haunting series, ‘Stop the Violence.'”
“In the mid-90’s, during an auction from an old school, I purchased 3 metal lockers and to my surprise one of them held a real, full size articulated skeleton,” he says. “For years I had it displayed in one of the rooms in my studio and I often wondered what else I could do with it. Finally the idea came to me to explore the idea of disassembling the skeleton and rearranging the bones, and from that process came the series ‘Stop the Violence.’”
Robert confesses that more than anything else he is motivated by the fear of death. “The bones are something left behind, a form of memory. I try to treat that person on my studio floor with respect.”
