Afropicks

BY SIMON SKINNER
@ VOL 65 ON MAR 27, 2019

These Afropick combs are inspired by people with afro hair. The picks are designed to suit various types of afro hair and hairstyles. Material: Acrylic plastic, incorporated hair, 3D-printed PLA plastic, 3D-printed steel. The Afropicks are made for those of us with afro hair and are a symbol of black pride to many people. By developing new picks (perhaps the first Swedish Afropicks in history), Simon Skinner wanted to contribute something that feels fun and also to say something important.

My Obsession

BY TONJE HALVORSEN
@ VOL 65 ON MAR 27, 2019

We have all heard stories about the suffering artist. The question Tonje Halvorsen asked herself was: who am I as an artist, and does art require pain? 1 collection. 21 garments, 500,000 safety pins, 1,500,000 beads and 7,000 hours later. What was her answer? Obsession. Tonje's artistry is characterised by an obsession, which in the past two years has been prioritised over her health, relationships and job. An obsession that has cost me some of my most valuable possession: time.

BY JESPER ÅSTRÖM
@ VOL 62 ON MAR 07, 2018

Digital worker Jesper Åström on how distance actually matter when we value things. The same goes for ideas. The further away you are from an idea, the less you need to know to find it interesting.  Perhaps that's why we have such troubles loving the thing which is the closest to us - ourselves.
