No matter what washington does, says, ignores, or destroys, ny, la, sf, chicago, atlanta, alabama--dozens of states, hundreds of cities, millions of americans--stand with the world. i wish you a resolute, hopeful, and constructive 2018. (the great beanie is by kerby jean-raymond of pyer moss (2016)).

Body masks from nigeria in the exhibition "wild: untamed mind," curated at 21_21 design sight in tokyo by shinichi nakazawa, a philosopher and anthropologist. he explains: "the base of our culture and life lies in the "untamed mind." this mind affects both human instinct and intellect, and it is the trigger and stimulant for creativity." #21_21designsight
