D.A.F.F., the Danish Adventure Film Festival kicks off tonight, Thursday and runs until Sunday here in Copenhagen. The festival has legs in Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg and Kolding as well running until the 15th of December.
Included in the program are a range of films that I’d personally want to check out including 2 locally made productions (well, made by locals): Asphalt NYC by previous DAFF award winner René Johannson and Locals Only made for Levi’s by photographer Thomas Skou. Read more →

Right now and until February the 14th you have the opportunity to experience Louise Bourgeois right here in Copenhagen at the Faurschou Foundation. Louise Bourgeois is one of the most respected artists of our time. Her big international breakthrough came surprisingly late in her life. It was only in 1986 with a large retrospective exhibition at MoMa, that she became a household name in art history. For the last 30 years Bourgeois has been the grand old lady of contemporary art, she is one of the most important international artists – in both modernist and contemporary art. Read more →
The Jaunt continues its transit project of putting artists in places short term to drag some inspiration out of them, the goal being the creation of unique artwork.

Artwork is sold strictly in advance of the trip, so your faith is put in Miss Lotion to produce something you like. And if not, no worries, someone will and it’s only €60 for a limited-to-50 print. You can follow Miss Lotion’s trip via their blog. Read more →

Coming straight out of New Zealand, Moreporks is a brand you should def have on your radar. With a sound ‘made in New Zealand’ foundation, Moreporks are inspired by the land and sea, and the outdoor lifestyle well known to all kiwis such as sailing, hunting and mountain climbing. But of course with an ironic South Pacific flavour.
Just in is the River 13 collection inspired from the Glenorchy end of Lake Wakatipu in the far south. Famous for its brilliantly cold glacial waters, fly fishing and now days, jet boating. When travelling up the lake on the single narrow winding road you can see the weather coming in, as it pulls the dust from the Dart river’s shingle beds, hurling it up towards the lake and beyond.

A couple of years back I got an email from a guy named Lucas Beaufort who had painted the cover of our XV issue, MEOW, in acrylic, see below. I was pumped and sent him a copy of 16 to get the same done. Now I have the set.
I slowly discovered through my tumblr fed that Lucas has been painting skate and snowboard magazine covers such as Transworld, Skateboarder Mag etc for a while, building up quite a series. This series is now released as a book, The Recover Project, which has been published in a run of 450 copies.
The book is available here.

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in what could easily be confused for less-than-legal smoking contraptions into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
