about 2faced1.com

2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;

Persona 1:
WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

Persona 2:
WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!

 

A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND

A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.

SWAP! ANDREA CREWS + Item Idem

Post date Fri 25 Apr 2008 12:04 PM

Just got this pic from Marie aha flashie trasie who's down with Andrea Crews in Paris. Its her and my boy Kirikoo (yes the dancer from BuckNgrind pt 1!) for the project SWAP: Andrea Crews togheter with Item Idem (did the awarded Bernhard Willhelm shop in Tokyo)

"SWAP's conceptual origin starts from a simple assumption/equation:If an artist can create a shop for a fashion designer, then why can't a designer produce the exhibition of an artist?
If an artist, leaving direction & design roles to other professionals, become the medium and the source of inspiration of his own exhibition, what happens to his works & ideas, when “copyleft” becomes the conceptual starting point of the entire project ?"

 

Andrea Crews and Item Idem is once again in between art and design, Paris heads see more of it at Colette where you can find a pop up SWAP SHOP.

When Faniel jumped in his Bay Icon Jeans Outfit he suddenly became so damn old school.



StreeI had to catch him in his b-boy stance.

Don't be afraid to have kind of short jeans, you will look like hell without kicks on, but with em on and the jeans just laying without creases on the uppershoe the look ll be thight!

DrMartens is the shit, this is a great colour for the Fall. In Sweden go for a pair of Jeans with a bad fit "B&W Style" in stead of shorts..., earings Söderklenoden, bag vintage, shirt Crooks & Castles (love this whole collection! see also the Busted fashion in Kingsize). Think the JADE video for "Don't Walk Away".
