T-shirt's Voice

Posted by Maureen Alfonso on Wed, Jan, 04, 2012 @ 11:01 AM

Jenny Holzer is one of the icons of Post-Modern art. Since the 1970s, Holzer has been working in an unconventional medium, text. If one wasn’t familiar with Post-Modern art, he/she could easily see one of her works and not recognize it as art. Her works take form on virtually every substrate imaginable, everything from marques to condoms and from projections on the facades of high rise buildings to simple printed books. One of her mediums she’s been known to employ over the years to proliferate her subversive messages is the tee shirt.

Holzer is most known for one liner-like statements that are meant to elicit debate internal or otherwise. These texts are generally presented in very simple sans serif font in simple colors (usually white on black or vice versa). They are almost always level, no dressing, and at their most indulgent, scroll across an LED screen or the like. Her tees are in this vein.

Have you ever put on a decorated t-shirt and immediately felt like you were wrapped in cardboard? Though that may be a bit of an exaggeration, I have experienced and worn t-shirts that were incredibly uncomfortable due to the design printed on the front of the tee.

Why Wear Bamboo Clothing?

Posted by Maureen Alfonso on Wed, Jul, 27, 2011 @ 07:07 AM

Soft. Breathable. Moisture-Wicking. Organic Fabric. These words all describe the little things that make wearing Spun Bamboo clothing great. But the BIG THING that makes Spun Bamboo so great is its benefits that can affect the entire global community.

Spun Bamboo plantations are harvested on a rotational basis. This means that while other crops, such as cotton, are entirely butchered at the time of harvest, causing bare soils to release more carbon into our atmosphere, Spun Bamboo plantations are harvested in portions at a time. Some part of the plantation will always be still standing, which is good for the environment.
