| 6. FUTURE SHOCK | Things in the Slow and Steady Wins the Race Time Capsule for 2017

There are 6 days remaining in 2017 so we thought we would countdown and share with you some of the items and ideas we would put in our time capsule. For us they straddle the very specific space of the timely with the timeless; sometimes sublimely anachronistic, fundamentally classic, and are reflective of a value system we hold true to.

Future Shock by Alvin Toffler.

Now more important than ever a book to read and to re-read.

 

| 7. Art by Albee and Connors | Things in the Slow and Steady Wins the Race Time Capsule for 2017

There are 7 days remaining in 2017 so we thought we would countdown and share with you some of the items and ideas we would put in our time capsule. For us they straddle the very specific space of the timely with the timeless; sometimes sublimely anachronistic, fundamentally classic, and are reflective of a value system we hold true to.

Matt Connors at Canada Gallery

From The New Yorker :

Lovely, jittery new paintings, bolstered by lyrical talent and philosophical suspense, affirm Connors’s status as a leader in contemporary abstraction. Each work takes a crack at discovery with some variant of strict or wobbly geometry, dense or scrappy composition, careful or flurried touch, and color that seems wrong, but you like it. Beauty keeps happening like something glimpsed by chance, neither quite intended nor fully grasped. What Connors is trying to get at may be unachievable, but his going for it beguiles.

Becca Albee at Situations Gallery

From Artnews:

“So that’s the kind of beginning walkthrough, this rotating light fixture that projects cyan, magenta, and yellow, which is to vibrate color,” Albee said.

There are 8 days remaining in 2017 so we thought we would countdown and share with you some of the items and ideas we would put in our time capsule. For us they straddle the very specific space of the timely with the timeless; sometimes sublimely anachronistic, fundamentally classic, and are reflective of a value system we hold true to.

Coca Cola, was founded one hundred and thirty one years ago and familiar all over the world.

OCC Market at Coming Soon
December 18-23, 2017

Opening 12/18/17 5:30-7:30

37 Orchard St.

A shoppable exhibition of obsessive collections curated by Sight Unseen and Tetra co-
founder Monica Khemsurov, OCC Market opens December 18 at the Lower East Side

design boutique Coming Soon. Ten object enthusiasts in design, food, and fashion were
asked to contribute “Obsessive Compulsive Collections” consisting of at least 8
variations on a single archetype, including Sabrina De Sousa of Dimes (peppermills),
Daphne Correll of Correll Correll (Mexican candles), and Mary Ping of Slow and Steady
Wins the Race (clip-on earrings). Some contributed two, resulting in 12 collections that
will be on view and available for purchase in Coming Soon’s subterranean project space,
the Plyroom.

We amassed a collection of various vintage clip on earrings sourced from eBay, Etsy, and thrift shops. We went in search of timeless, sculptural, architectural, and unusual
takes on the clip-on, whether it be a 1960s Space Age Lucite starburst shape, or
modernist silver-tone half-cylindrical bars. Our favorites are the 1950s pea-soup colored
earrings with a pivot point connecting 3 blade-shaped pieces of Bakelite that you can
wear closed or spread open. We haven’t seen anything quite like them, but we wish we
designed them ourselves.
