MOMENTS| Rehash: #FBF Laurie Anderson “O Superman (For Massenet)” Music Video Merged Performance Art x Popular Music


We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
In 1981, performance artist and musician Laurie Anderson’s “O Superman (For Massenet),” a half-sung, half-spoken, almost minimalist composition, charted #2 on the UK Singles Charts. Anderson wrote “O Superman (For Massenet),” she took inspiration from Jules Massenet’s opera Le Cid, “O Souverain”, a piece that reminded her of Napoleon’s fall at Waterloo. Sung through a robotic vocoder, the song blends politics, mantra-like aphorisms, and sentimentalism to create a timeless piece that makes the listener contemplate a world on the brink of its digital revolution.

MOMENTS | Collage: #FBF Artist Matthew Stone’s Body Language Combined Sculpture x Photography To Create Cut/Paste Collage Art Cubes


We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
In his Body Language exhibition, Matthew Stone, London-based artist, took sculptural cubes and linked them to collage art with cut-and-paste photographs of the human body. The photographs, which were also shot by Stone, used the interplay of light and darkness “to invoke and create history, rather than to document it”.
The collaged sculptures of the human body in Body Language were a rejection of simple binaries. Instead, the cut-and-paste bodies represented the conflicting realities in our politically and religiously polarized world. 

TREND | Post-Gender Unisexuality, Our Shapes are Always Changing


We’ve been on a steady post-gender trend, but it wasn’t until this year that the impact of unisexuality has truly made its way into the mainstream.  
Hip-hop has a sometimes-unfortunate history of being dominated by machismo conservatism. But we live in a modern world where the ‘norm’ is always changing. A wave of prominent and emerging artists has not only debunked the dated ethos through experimental music but through their choice of post-gender fashion.
Kanye West has always been vocal about his love of fashion, and he was definitely on this unisexual train (before it was cool) when he killed it in that leather skirt. Though it attracted a lot of silly attention and controversy at the time, that skirt kicked off the amazing trend of eschewing gender boundaries in street style.
At Coachella, we saw Kid Cudi step on the stage in a male crop top, and André 3000 performed his second Coachella set in a long platinum blonde wig. Both their looks seem inspired by Shayne Oliver’s FW14 collection for Hood By Air.
