There was a time when Jack Daniels gave me the visual of paper bagged bottles, barrel fires and slurry conversations. Those memories lack reason and as they fade to black new and more meaningful connections are made. It’s interesting to see how the company connects itself with images of tradition and crafts to create perceptions of value and history. This concept seems to work well, I’ll assume its the hands on rugged appeal that associates the two brands. Both of which leave the impression of gritty yet refined personalities.
It’s amazing to see how Type bookstore in Toronto brings books to life by stacking and shifting. Every moved planned and carefully orchestrated with seamless timing is undoubtedly a tricky task. A simple idea along with countless hours of dedication all captured and edited down to a little less then 2 minutes. I’ve never seen books so happy before.

“In my work, I use a sewing machine to create thread drawings and installations by sewing into a fabric that dissolves in water. This fabric makes it possible for me to build up the thread by sewing repeatedly into my drawn images so that when the fabric is dissolved, the image can hold together without a base. These thread images appear as though they would be easily unraveled and seemingly on the verge of falling apart, despite the works actual raveled strength.
I am interested in the vulnerability of thread, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together. I am interested in the connections between process and materials and the way that they relate to images and spaces. Tracing actions and environments through a process of repetition, translation and dissolving, I hope to trace absence. My work is a process of making as a way of tracing and preserving things that are gone, or slowly falling apart. ” Amanda McCavour
