Are The Italian's Really Stallions?

logo.jpg
SexyMan.jpg

Ummmmm, no according to Durex's latest study! Apparently the real stallions are the Nigerians who on average last 24 minutes, most impressive compared to Indians averaging a mere 13 minutes! Check out the rest of the article here not all countries are included but its worth a quick glance over to see which country would be worth locating to after here! Seems the Italians are not so hot ....eeeek time to leave people!

Via Cosimo the true Italian stallion! wink.

Reed Young has left the Building...

It gets a bit personal. One of my very dearest friends, a great man with a loud and honest mouth leaves us this week. I, and everyone in Fabrica, wish Reed all the best.

reed.jpg
Reed Young, Photography Dept. May 2006, June 2007

What was your life like pre-Fabrica?
Before I started Fabrica I was fresh out of photo school, working for a couple of great fashion photographers in New York. My life consisted of loading film, eating expensive food and sitting on
airplanes in business class, never taking any pictures of my own. This is also my definition of hell.

What was life like during Fabrica?
When I started here I was really confused and angry. When I left yesterday, I was only confused. (This is also the answer to the next question.)

What are you most proud of doing in your time here?

You were known to speak your mind... how did this serve you in Fabrica?
Terribly, just shut up and work. This isn’t a fantasy, it’s a job.
But on the contrary, I really enjoy this quote by Elia Kazan, “When the kicking shoe is on the foot of the man with the bruised ass, he’s likely to use it.”

What advice would you have wanted before coming here?
Relax.

What's the most important lesson you learned here?
In the business of commercial art, the distance between the bottom and the top is very short. I think they’re actually the same thing.

Best and worst moments?
Best Moment(s): Vorland, Munich, and Sicily
Worst Moment(s): The first 6 months (except Sicily)

What's the plan now, Reed?
I’m moving to Milan to look for work as a prostitute.

Any parting words? Any thanks to give?
Thanks to Luciano Benetton for creating the opportunity of a lifetime for lots of young and talented people. Thanks to Renzo di Renzo for everything you did for me yesterday. Thanks to Enrico Bossan for being a great mentor and a total asshole, I have learned lots from you, and I hope our love/hate relationship isn’t finished. And finally I’d like to thank all of the friends and colleagues I met over the last year. You have been invaluable to me. I have learned more from you in 12 months than I have in my entire life leading up to Fabrica. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with such great people.

Disposable Art

Sergio C. Flores Martínez produces ‘Figuratismo Conceptualico’, a figurative work that represents both surprise and discrepancy.

sergio-flores.jpg

Symbolizing an ethereal and ephemeral condition, he transforms disposable paper into art.
Or turns art into a disposable object.

Update

logo.jpg
anorexia.jpg

I felt the need to post again about anorexia after the huge amount of comments I received from a previous post. I wrote about the photographic work of Lauren Greenfield and her documentation of anorexia sufferers. The above images are from her THIN exhibition and as you can see this is a devastating condition to suffer from. I had no idea how many people would respond to it and I am truly overwhelmed by the honesty of everyone who wrote and continues to write. It saddens me so much to hear other's stories but I'm thrilled the blog could provide an outlet for you.

As some of you may know I also suffered for a long time from an eating disorder. After years of battling I have now fully recovered and i'm stronger than ever which is partly why I made the post, to help others out there who suffer. I just wanted to make sure that for those of you who did make comments and asked for help please do contact me at piaknight@gmail.com I am more than happy to try to help you in any way I can. I'm not medically qualified obviously but I do understand the emotional side having suffered myself. Support is the key to recovery and I'm lucky enough that I was able to receive a lot of it. So please if you come across this site and need help let me know.

Have a good day. Pia

In the News

The Sun is the trashiest and worst written newspaper on Earth. Today there's an article about couples that put paper bags over their heads for sexual enjoyment. The Sun is calling it "a kinky new craze."

0,,2007280399,00.jpg

And here's a bunch of repetitive text:
I’ve used a special rubber mask from a fetish shop. But our favourite toy is my plain brown paper bag. I only have to rustle it to get Phil excited. We started experimenting with bagging after Phil read about it on a website. We were both amazed by how much we enjoyed it. Our sex life is much more thrilling since I started covering his head with a paper bag when we make love.’
Denise says bagging makes lovemaking better for both of them. ‘Phil loves being in his own little world with his head inside a bag,’ she says.

That's just the tip of the crap iceberg... see the whole article here.

I don't need to say much just check it out here and enjoy the story of Latawnya the naughty horse and her dark adventure into the world of drugs! Yes I promise you its a horse that takes drugs! It's amazing.

Macabre Art

Dr Lakra is a tattoo artist. In his parallel activities, he embellishes vintage magazine covers in ink with demons, bats, spiders, and the faces of pouting vixens.

dr.lakra.jpg

Kitschy erotica, ancient ritual and hallucinogenic visions are fused in a collage of ideologies. There’s something about his gothic tastes that have the same hypnotic effect as freak show acts.

Techno Tuesday and Andy Rementer Update

Techno Tuesday fan, Cynthia writes: "There's been no new comic for ages! i miss my techno tuesday! i honestly really love this comic. it is very clever and funny. the artwork and style of presentation is beautiful. please start it up again! if its really over, let us know what andy's up to so we can follow him!"

Well, dear Cynthia, Andy Rementer is now living in America and finished his time at Fabrica at the end of April. He most certainly is very funny and clever, and he most certainly is continuing with Techno Tuesday and has, in fact, set up his own Techno Tuesday website which is updated every Tuesday! Andy does not post on the Fabrica blog anymore, but from time to time I remember to add his comics on, as I know he developed his fan base here.

Hope that clears everything up Cynthia. Here now, are the comics you've been so sorely missing...

Nicolas Cheng Has Entered the Building...

nic.jpg
Sitting in the Industrial Design department since March 6th.

What were you doing before coming to Fabrica?
I was studying in the Netherlands at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. After graduating I worked at an industrial design studio for a while.

What do you expect from your time in Fabrica?
I hope I’m going to be working all day long on some projects that I think are interesting and creative.

What are you looking forward to experiencing in Italy?

Culture, food, language, girl...anything!!

What are you going to miss from home?
The atmosphere of my hometown (Hong Kong) I think. And of course my family and friends.

Marian is Leaving the Building...

Marian announced that he was leaving Fabrica last week. Someone said that this place would be like having a Santaless Christmas without him.

Marian.jpg
Marian Grabmayer, Graphic Design Department, 2005-2007Photo by Sarah Napier.

You’ve been here for how long?
I’ve been here for two years.

What’s the best and worst stuff you’ve seen here?
It’s impossible for me to keep this answer short. It’s been a long time with a lot of stuff happening, both positive and negative. Generally I’ve done my best work here and I’ve shared the best moments together with you guys.
It’s been the best time of my life as far as going out and spending free time is concerned. I’ve seen people getting naked and jumping off boats and bridges into rivers, I’ve heard people playing saxophone in the Fabrica elevator, I was in the winning team at a football tournament, I’ve experienced parties inside Fabrica (and I mean parties), I saw an amazing jam session at Treviso’s only non-Trevisian bar, I even got to dance in the streets. These are moments I’m going to remember for the rest of my life!
On the other hand I’ve spent too many nights working on proposals for projects that turned out being nothing but hot air, I could have been more clever in scheduling my time. My favourite negative event is the first big meeting we had for the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou: We got told that this would be day zero and that from now on we would start thinking about how this exhibition could look like. But we had already been working on proposals for two months – basically for nothing! It was ridiculous and I thought this would be the end of our collaboration with the Pompidou. Fortunately I was wrong.

What did you do before Fabrica?
For half a year I didn’t do much aside from a bit of freelancing. And before that I finished my studies in visual communication at the University of Art and Design in Linz, Austria.

Where are you headed now and what will life be like for you?
Now I’m going to apply at some advertising agencies inside and outside Europe, and hopefully I’m going to live in an exciting city soon. I will let you know!

Do you think it will be hard to readjust to “real life?“
I think changes in life are never easy. Coming to Fabrica was quite hard for me as well. But I hold the opinion that it’s good to change every now and then. Otherwise you get too comfortable with your daily routine.

What will you miss the most about life here?
Our weekly football matches, parties at Fabricanti’s apartments (probably with the police showing up after one hour), and hanging out at the local cafés on Saturdays.

What’s your greatest accomplishment in Fabrica?
I’ve learned a lot about relations and relationships, little lessons about life, which are a big benefit.

Any last words?
Last words are crap; let’s meet again somewhere!

Say farewell to our friendly giant. This is his last week.

Fearless humor

Some of the people that I admire the most are political cartoonist. Fearless and clever, they criticize the reality with a genius sense of humor.
rius.jpg
Rius is a fierce Latin-American political activist. His progressist and leftwing point of view is often present in his work, accompanied by a strong criticism of neo-liberal doctrines and U.S. Government policies. He raises the consciousness of his readers and mercilessly satirizes institutions, religions, endemic political corruption and repression.

El Chamuco and Los Supermachos are some examples of his work.

No (no) logo

Some people love it, others hate it.
The new Olympics 2012 Logo took a year to design, it cost US$ 800,000 to produce, it comes as pink, orange, green or blue and as we can see, has the capital city’s name in lower case.
logo-olympics.jpg
Some call it a vibrant innovation.
Others, an insult and a disgrace.
To add more controversy, the much-criticised logo and its animated footage promoting the Games has triggered epileptic seizures.

Dear friend Guillermo has recently picked up the filthy blogging habit, and is doing great things with it by showcasing former Fabricanti work, great art, and fun shit. We'll be sure to steal from his site in the future.
