Heroic Failure

BY TOM LLOYD
@ VOL 4 ON SEP 23, 2011

Tom Lloyd is a designer, but also a thinker. In his presentation, Tom thinks about how objects, architecture, and stories are constructed; how we get from point A to point B. He speaks on the concept of "heroic failures", and asks why certain failures are looked back on with an air of love and wistfulness -- failures like the AMC DeLorean, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the rickety bridge trope -- when other failures are simply abject.

1980

BY GREG MILO
@ VOL 9 ON NOV 03, 2017

During the presentation, Greg explain that year through the lens of a seven-year old (his age at the time) and how he came to understand the world in much more complicated terms, rather than black and white, good and bad, right and wrong. Many events that shaped Greg into the person he is today occurred during this year, including Darth Vader's defeat of the rebels, the constant appearing of the Ayatollah Khomeini on my television, JR Ewing's getting shot by someone, the death of John Lennon, and the death of my uncle, which his father was later found to be responsible for.

#iwokeuplikethis

BY ILENIA PEZZANITI
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 09, 2018

Created by Ilenia Pezzaniti, #iwokeuplikethis is a photo series started in 2015 which promotes women's self-esteem. #iwokeuplikethis is about redefining beauty in our own individual terms and owning our definitions. It is about creating peace within the self and teaching our our offspring the same values. It is about inspiring all genders to remove the stereotypical toxic ideas of beauty and the things we do to achieve such heights, and instead see to love our own truths and the truths of others.
