This wine is too good for toast-drinking, my dear. You don't want to mix emotions up with a wine like that. You lose the taste.

 

I love those mornings when you wake to darkness and no one is asking anything of you. You’re under no pressure to exist. This is something of which I am in constant need.

One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences.

Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.

Spawned from his central theme of chaos and control, Gareth Pugh engaged audiences at Lexus Design Disrupted in a supercell to showcase his newest collection, courtesy of sculpture artist Daniel Wurtzel.

Heating our planet from 93 million miles away, our host star - the sun - causes variable disturbances in Earth’s atmosphere. Because the sun’s warmth is relative to the surface area of Earth facing the sun directly, storms formulate due to convection, whereby heat is diffused and displaced geographically. Cumulonimbus clouds - undergoing congestion from molecular instability described macroscopically by the science of thermodynamics - appear very benign and static, even though we’re aware of their constant motion.

However, when perturbations are triggered amidst low pressure densities in the atmosphere, a cyclostrophic balance results, generating a tornado. From a distance, tornadoes - like Pugh’s collection - seem smooth, uniform, serene. Up close, the hectic cyclone reveals its unbridled power. Such is the way in which Gareth Pugh merges anarchy and restraint within his installations.

Gareth Pugh’s implementation of this meteorological phenomena extended his digital supercell into the physical form, setting the stage for his collection to be immortalized in all minds fortunate enough to experience it.
