Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".
Tom Ford


Reptile Youth - "A flash in the forest"

Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen and Esben Valløe, the guys of Danish duo Reptile Youth, asked ten different directors to produce music videos for each of the ten songs on their début album "Reptile Youth" which was released some months ago. In contrast to "Be my Yoko Ono", which premiered in December 2012 (here on Morphosis), the new video reflects yet another approach to interpret a Reptile Youth song. While it deals with anger, frustration, uprise and rebellion, the video transforms the track's vibe into a sensitive portrait of a young man in a crisis. Madrid-based photographer / videographer Diana Kunst invited up-and-coming Brit model Cosmo MacDonald for this impressive piece. Diana Kunst is a much in-demand visual artist and shot a number of heavy weight fashion commercials, "but it's in her personal work where she lets her immense talents really run wild with a series of quietly confrontational works which will get under your skin", as Rob Alderson wrote on It's Nice That. "She is brilliant at creating a certain kind of atmosphere, a visual discombobulation. There's a seam of sexuality running throughout but it's rarely a straightforward kind (is sexuality ever straightforward ?) with slightly dark, slightly twisted overtones at play and you often feel plunged into a narrative you're forced to try and work out". Now enjoy "A flash in the forest" !
