Category Archives: Summer Break
We may not be in Rome, but as of today, we’re doing as the Romans (and all the other Europeans) do: Giving ourselves a relatively long, extremely un-American break from the grind by putting Sight Unseen on our usual summer hiatus while we give our minds and fingers a proper rest. For two weeks, we’ll be chilling and hitting the beach, where we may or may not contemplate all the fantastic behind-the-scenes stories we’ll be bringing you as summer slides into fall: Posts on Laura Young of Areaware, Cali ceramicist Ian McDonald, Berlin upstarts the Fundamental Group, and a very special Sight Unseen exclusive documenting a certain internet phenom who asked 12 children to critique — and contribute to — her body of work. Plus, we’re heading to the London Design Festival in September, where we’ll cozy up to all the UK talents whose names we’ve been collecting all year, and hopefully attend some killer parties in between. Now, we wouldn’t want to leave you totally empty handed, so how about a completely random video just posted by our fave L.A. shop Iko Iko? It features, among other curiosities, the Waka Waka bookends we’ve got stocked in our Sight Unseen shop. Because just so you know, as always, the shop will be up and running even while we’re decidedly not.
