GET LUCKY INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION

by FriendsWithYou in Miami
Posted by Gestalten—08/2004

BOX is proud to present GET LUCKY, an interactive installation by FriendsWithYou.

Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval combined forces in 2002 and have been slowly spreading   their art around the globe ever since. Originally the FriendsWithYou characters ventured into the world as hand-sewn plush dolls that provide magic and mayhem for their owners; now they have expanded to modular wooden toys, public art installations, motion pictures and more.

Here's how FriendsWithYou describe the show:

"GET LUCKY is an adventure into a modern ritual that empowers us to realize the significant effect we can pose on the world and a chance to alter it to a more balanced state to achieve happiness. We will provide a quick wish response system, face to face time with god and multiple sub gods to accommodate the aspects of our lives that we strive to better. No more wasteful prayers, no more disappointments. Get ready to experience a fast connection with the abstract being inside us all, the unification of human, animal, and nature. The "Fur Liaison" (pictured at left) will act as a tour guide, weighing your potential and offering you an opportunity to receive the light and bring positive change to your life. MAKE SURE TO BRING AN OFFERING AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED GREATLY!"

Trachten featured in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Trachten on DB mobil. “Das Buch ist eine Hommage an fast vergessene Traditionen vieler deutscher Regionen. Wie ein Farbrausch, prunkvoll und überwältigend, ziehen die Bilder den Betrachter in den Bann.”

Trachten featured in the April 17 edition of Süddeutsche Zeitung. “Trachten spielen wieder eine Rolle in der Mode: weil sie für Ursprünglichkeit stehen und ein wenig Weltflucht. (Dieser) Bildband feiert die Kleider-Kunstwerke…Eine Augenweide.”

Trachten in the April 19 edition of Welt am Sonntag. “Der Modefotograf Gregor Hohenberg reiste fünf Jahre lang durch Deutschland, um Menschen in Trachten zu porträtieren. Seine Bilder zeigen eine erstaunliche Vielfalt der Formen, Schnitte und Verzierungen – und sie erzählen von hoher Handwerkskunst.”

Imagine Architecture reviewed in the April/May issue of Cubes. "An interdisciplinary bridge for those who wish to seek inspiration beyond their field of architecture, photography or modern art."

The New Nomads featured on Milk Decoration.

Corso interviewed Sven Ehmann about The New Nomads.
