Controlled chaos is an understatement. The Humans have been busier than ever. Many new fun Medium Control ventures in the works that are deploying this month. Currently they are in transit to Austin for the Renegade show. Tomorrow we’ll post a couple shots of the booth and some sneak peaks at some of the new designs and products.

Know any Texas or Austin heads – send them over. We will be slinging goods all Saturday and Sunday. Cheers and hopefully a couple beers.

MINNEAPOLIS SHOW RECAP

mediumcontrol_show_recap_001

Medium Control Goods hit the road this past weekend. We have been noticeably absent from our daily ranting due to the churning wheels of production. The Humans were busy designing and building a 6×8′ booth that would display all their new bags, metal prints and t-shirts. After a long week of late evenings I sent the Humans packing so I could get some rest while they headed out to sell some goods. They told me the show (thetalentshowmn.com) held at the rau+barber studio was a great experience and everyone was excited to see all the new Watson goods (of course). Thanks to all who ventured out to the show – we appreciate it. Enter the booth HERE.

SHOW. “PLASTIC VIEWS” B&W METAL PRINTS

View all black & white metal prints

More from PLASTIC VIEWS. As mentioned previously, the Humans currently have an art show on display the entire month of March at Pizza Luce in Duluth, Minnesota. For those we may not be able to attend in person the Humans wanted to share some images from the show. Here are the black and white lomography images currently on display. Each image is printed on brushed sheet metal, float mounted, and ready to hang on your wall. Printing on metal is an interesting alternative to paper. Metal prints are can be hung without frame or glass for a less traditional approach to displaying photography. Enjoy some black and white HERE.

PHOTO / ART SHOW “PLASTIC VIEWS” AT PIZZA LUCE DULUTH

mediumcontrol_plastic_views_pizza_luce

If anyone happens to be in the Duluth, MN area during the month of March, stop by Pizza Luce and check out our new show, PLASTIC VIEWS. Plastic Views steps away from the computer and digital photography, focusing on the unique aspects of film. All photos in the show have been taken over the last ten years by a plastic holga or diana camera with medium format 120/220 film. These particular plastic cameras are known for their cheap plastic bodies, light leaks, random in/out of focusing and natural vignettes. To push this lomo photography based concept further most shots were taken with expired film, providing a unique color base and saturation on it’s own. The images were then printed on metal, with either a brush metal base or white enamel which determines the white balance of the image. A rather surreal view into photography as we step further and further down the digital road.

Plastic Views also takes into perspective the day after day monotony of working as a designer behind a plastic computer screen. Presenting works made from help of the hand and not the keyboard, which include: india ink and watercolor, wood working pieces and others.

Thanks for the support.
