1. Humans use technology to improve their lives, to forge connections, to create time that doesn’t exist, to replace real interactions. When we devise a second version of ourselves on social media, do we lose a piece of our true selves in the process? Do our digital connections threaten our real life relationships? What happens if the filtered characters we’ve imagined take on a life of their own?

    For many years Free People has told love stories -- we wanted to explore what our world could look like in the near future....

  2. I am in no way even attempting to assume that I know anything about the political/social realities at play in the world at the moment, but at quick glance it seems as though violence breeds more violence. The people who changed the world, were the ones who laid down their arms - chose to forgive - to restore - to love - people like Jesus, Mandela, Gandhi, Martin Luther King.

    Just before he was assassinated on April 3rd, 1968, Martin Luther King preached the sermon ‘I’ve been to the Mountaintop’. Its a profound account of hope, amidst despair - where he considers the significance of being born into the turmoil and unrest of the twentieth century. His outlook provides unique context for pain and suffering as he says ‘only when it is dark enough can you see the stars’.

    He goes on to say; ‘Men for years now have been talking about war and peace. But now no longer can they just talk about it. It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; it’s nonviolence or nonexistence. That is where we are today.’

    He modeled a way of non-violence - and it cost him his life.

    Inspired by his words one night I cut together this clip using old archive footage from the Prelinger Archives - those words are as poignant today as they were back when he first spoke them - if not more (for me personally at least).

    Score: Ryan Taubert
