adidas Originals SoHo Welcomes “SNEAKERHEAD” Exhibit by Freehand Profit

Visit the original post to see all 7 images from this gallery.

adidas Originals’ SoHo, New York store has unveiled a new art exhibit by none other than Gary Lockwood, better known as Freehand Profit. Freehand Profit is the one responsible for the current craze of custom-made masks, assembled from deconstructed sneakers.

“You can call what I do Hip-Hop steampunk, or Hip-Hop cosplay. Whatever the spin, Hip-Hop is at the heart of it,“ offers Freehand Profit. “I think of chopping up sneakers the way a DJ or producer samples a record, taking an existing art form and scratching, cutting and remixing until you have an entirely new art form.”

Freehand recently joined with adidas as a part of their “Original is Never Finished” campaign, in which many of his masks were worn by streetwear influencers, featured prominently across numerous platforms, including film.




























For the new SoHo installation, seven Freehand Profit masks are showcased, crafted from reconfigured pairs of adi favorites such as the NMD and EQT. The exhibit (115 Spring Street between Mercer and Greene Streets) is currently open to the public through March 21.

The “High House” Is an Elevated Oasis in Quebec

Visit the original post to see all 5 images from this gallery.

Delordinaire‘s High House in Quebec invites people to gather in spaces that are immersed in nature.

The home is in turn elevated on stilts typically used in warm climates and flood zones, while the ground floor itself is thus protected by the stilt typology. There, residents can be at one with the outside elements, while still having protection from extreme conditions.

An additional standout component that the stilt typology provides is unobstructed views above the tree line, honing in on Mont Saint Anne.

For a look at this peaceful oasis by Delordinaire, scan through the imagery above.

Beyonce, Madonna, Coldplay Pen Letter for International Women’s Day

Beyoncé, Madonna, Coldplay and John Legend are among the artists to sign an open letter marking International Women’s Day in this “critical moment in history.”

“Recent legislation and rhetoric have put decades of progress for girls and women at risk,” the signees wrote in the open letter on behalf of Global Citizen and Chime for Change.

“All over the world, women are on the frontlines fighting for our future. Yet millions of girls and women are still denied basic equal rights. And recent policies and appointments in the United States jeopardize its position as a global leader and positive role model on human rights. We stand together to say, in a voice louder than ever, that fighting for gender equality is the emergency and the opportunity of our time.”

Actresses like Julia Roberts, Freida Pinto, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Dakota Johnson and Salma Hayek, who co-founded Chime for Change with Beyoncé, also signed the letter, which also demand gender equality.

“This is about hearing a call – to join us wherever you are. About raising an alarm – drawing attention where there is work to be done. And about celebrating – those who are already showing us, against impossible odds, what is possible,” they continued.

“We believe that connection empowers us. That every voice matters. That each one of us is needed to achieve change. We believe we can do extraordinary things when we come together.”

Beyoncé helped found the Chime for Change female empowerment organization in 2013; that same year, a concert in support of that effort featured Beyoncé, Madonna, Legend, Jennifer Lopez, Jay Z, Florence and the Machine and more.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin is also heavily involved in Global Citizen, signing up to curate the organization’s annual super-concert until 2030.

Read the entire open letter below:

We have reached a critical moment in history. Recent legislation and rhetoric have put decades of progress for girls and women at risk.

In 2013, we joined with CHIME FOR CHANGE to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world. Today, we find ourselves under threat of seeing a generation’s worth of hard-won gains reversed.

All over the world, women are on the frontlines fighting for our future. Yet millions of girls and women are still denied basic equal rights. And recent policies and appointments in the United States jeopardize its position as a global leader and positive role model on human rights.

We stand together to say, in a voice louder than ever, that fighting for gender equality is the emergency and the opportunity of our time.

With every generation, our story has spread wider, become more familiar. The voices telling it braver, more powerful. But our story is far from over.

This is about hearing a call – to join us wherever you are. About raising an alarm – drawing attention where there is work to be done. And about celebrating – those who are already showing us, against impossible odds, what is possible.

We believe that connection empowers us. That every voice matters. That each one of us is needed to achieve change. We believe we can do extraordinary things when we come together.

We fight for education. For health. For justice. For every girl. Every woman. Everywhere. We fight for our future. Because none of us can move forward if half of us are held back.

Join us, and take action for gender equality at globalcitizen.org/IWD2017
