| NOW | Surveillance Index Bags

Surveillance Index Edition One is a collection of books that are associated with surveillance photography. Mark Ghuneim first launched the project at ICP, New York back in September, 2016, with an exhibition catalog designed by Studio Lin. After the Edition One, Slow and Steady Wins the Race was asked to design a bag for the second edition of the Surveillance Index book.

The bags will be launched alongside the new book. It is not only designed as a souvenir for the occasion of the book launch, but also as an utilitarian piece of garment that functions in everyday carrying.

| SSWTR & Friends | Softer, Softest: Part III by Monika Uchiyama

Studio’s friend Monika Uchiyama is showcasing her video installation Softer, Softest: Part III at the AC Institute. The opening reception was on last Friday and the show will last a week at the 4th floor of the 16 E 48th Street.

Here is Monika’s message.

Dear friends, 

I am excited to be presenting new video work at AC Institute as part of a series of exhibitions titled Softer, Softest: Parts I, II, & IIIPlease join me at the opening reception of Part III this Friday, October 12th, 6-8 pm.

For this series of shows, Peter Fankhauser, Julian Chams, and Monika Uchiyama consider the evolving nature of intimacy and exchange. They have taken turns transforming the gallery into solo-project spaces. By entering into an exchange that strategically codifies what is too personal, too soft, or too queer, they reposition the notion of vulnerability in closer proximity to control.

Hope you can come by!

– Monika
