The intrepid duo have briefly returned to their home port of Berlin to present the first two chapters in this odyssey with candid documentary photography and two new fashion stories created in Italy and the UK.

In his latest project Transition, Paul Vickery explores the complexities of teenage identity. While observing a group of street dancers and free runners in a small town in South West England, he felt compelled to record the moment, then spent nearly two years documenting his observations. “As the project evolved I became interested in the period of transition between teenage years and adulthood.. the more subtle ‘in-between’ moments caught my attention, hence the title.”

MyPaperSunglasses runs off into its 2nd edition.The idea behind the project is simple: participants, artist of all fields, get a thick white paper, cut out in shape of cool shades for customization. The results are extraordinary: from kids-tinker-style over minimalist-handicraft-details until fantastic-oversized-creations every pair is unique and every pair is beautiful. Creative mind behind the project, Brazilian designer Otávio Santiago, explains: “..the sunglasses appear as panels, over which the artist propels his/her peculiar point of view, a very close one: a picture of him/herself that he/she always wanted to see, or, better, to exhibit.”
An outstanding and humorous project.

We were given the amazing opportunity to take part in the 5th Year anniversary celebrations at the Luxembourg Museum of modern art; or MUDAM. Aside from making an exhibition of flying discs and presenting my photography portfolio we also had full access to the grounds and Museum to shoot a video. We wanted to follow up on our success of "Urban Disc invasion" with another belter where we bounce discs off walls, artwork, people and whatever inspires us or gets in our way- and the weekend saw a lot of inspiration indeed. We started the weekend warming up with the Luxembourg populous outside of the She Hannibal which was parked in the beautiful grounds of the Museum. Mudam is built on-top of fort Thüngen and cost over 100 Million to build. Even so the FSM crew got to climb all over the place and throw discs about, in our pursuit to make a great film. She Hannibal sat right in front of the fort on a stretch of grass overlooking the whole of the city and once we got the 7 inch records on the turntables and blasted out some Northern Soul music we felt very much at home. And it didn't stop there: the guys at MUDAM treated us like VIP´s. We had Anna Loporcaro taking care of our every need while Stina was on hand always with her cool and relaxed demeanor. In-fact all of the staff from catering to security to Museum Guides embraced us and made us feel like kings. This goes to show that the old anecdote is true about how atmosphere filters down from the top and at the top is Enrico Lunghi the Museum director who was open minded enough to welcome us in his Museum. I was very proud indeed to get recognition for the magazine from such prestigious people. Saturday saw the celebrations proper with an amazing line up of entertainment, free flowing champagne and tasty food. Many people came to relax on our She Hannibal carpet,sit on her rooftop terrace or just throw Discs around. The lads were great and we made a lot of friends that night. Inside the Museum hung over 100 discs from 1960 onwards with corresponding trivia and facts. Finally our sport is being recognized as an art form- something maintained by players since the 70´s. After much fun and laughter we retired to our grass behind the Museum to settle in and get ready for Sunday´s Frisbee action. Sunday morning saw glorious weather and a good turn out from the luxembourg people who brought picnics and blankets. I think on that day we brought many people into the sport- particularly kids -who enjoyed the workshops and games and girls who seemed to enjoy watching the lads play Frisbee!

We were asked to show FSM at Luxembourg´s premier concept store, Capsule. It was a great way to warm up for the Mudam Birthday weekend and meet some of the cities finest. When we rolled up in She Hannibal- melody horns twinkling and air horn blowing we certainly turned heads. It was a good start to our adventure and we met some great people but by eleven we had the she Hannibal already parked up on the grounds of the Museum of Modern Art and prepared for a great weekend of filming and fun.

Play On Words / Giochi Di Parole is an exhibition about ideas, how they take shape and how they make a difference to our clients’ businesses.
The goal is to expose the design process and bring it into the physical realm.
Each project displayed looks at the relationship between language, context and meaning: from the playful typographic approach of the Freestyle Magazine titles, to the more rigorous work for corporate clients, the common denominator is always the manipulation of language and the exploration of its context to unveil the unique idea that is at the heart of a brief.
