My largest resolution for 2017 is helping to make clubbing more into the safe space it’s supposed to be.
In my life, dance music clubs has been my no.1 “Safe Space”, where I go to be with other people in joy and artistic inspiration, where everyone’s friends, if only for the evening. Where any dance move is cool, where your only authority is the thunderous bass, and you check any greviance at the door.
I’ll readily admit; getting excited enough about a cabinet to blog about them is a mark of a special kind of design nut. Or maybe I’m just magnificently releaved to finally have some organisation of my ten years of poster design. Poster cabinet units like these usually get snatched up instantly when they appear in auctions, so I feel particularly lucky to get some that did’nt come with a ten-fold price hike due to being “vintage” or whatever they call old these days. Organising and storing fancy posters like these, that get deemed unsellable if they aquire the smallest crease, is hard enough when they are regular-sized. But now these 90x70cm ones will be a pain in my ass no more!
Seems the clearest way for me to implement my ideas is simply making them into merch. The continuing battle of inclusiveness and diversity in club culture is worthy of a helluva lot more than a cup. But then again, how else would you let your cupboard know where you stand on political issues? Next time you invite a date in for coffee, you can let them know you are WOKE AF with every sip.
And this way, I’m putting my mind-fingers on you both when dancing in the wee hours of the night, as well as for breakfast the next morning. I’m turning this creepy without even trying.
