Physical Rituals: Katelena Hernandez’s Treat Suit

February 6, 2013

In an age where a lot of our experience of life and art is dictated through the lens of
objective media like the internet, performance art like Hernandez’s becomes both

Words and Photos by Arthur Underwood On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused the New York City subway system to flood.

Life’s so Hard in Brooklyn: My Life as Liz and MTV’s Genre Evasion

October 31, 2012

Words by Jessica Lipman Illustration by Stav Sela My Life as Liz. It’s bubble gum meets Passion Pit meets displaced Brooklyn hipsterdom. It’s live-action kitsch Daria.
